US $5,400.00
Year:1988 Mileage:49750
Location:

Enterprise, Alabama, United States

Enterprise, Alabama, United States

The Good:

 Since the car is 26 years old , I had many components replaced to ensure better reliability.(new parts are listed in parentheses)   

* The car has the ORIGINAL 2.8L V6 engine that runs great at only 49,800 miles.  (new plugs, plug wires and distributor cap, rotor and new starter)

*The 3-speed automatic shifts smoothly and quietly every time. ( New Filter and upgraded torque converter lock valve)

* The suspension is tight (upgraded with new front shocks, Rear struts, new front upper and lower A-frame bushings, new boots on upper and lower ball joints)  and a four wheel alignment job from Firestone.  Note the bushings weren't warn , but the rubber was dry.

* This car drives and handles very good and turns heads, everything is stock with the exception of the 17" rims and low profile tires. The Low profile tires out perform the originals by far , but cause a little rougher ride.  

( Rims , tires and alignment cost approx $2, 000)  

* The car has a new (catalytic converter, Oxygen sensor and the muffler shop made it so the exhaust system can be removed in several pieces by installing expensive flanges.)

* Brakes ( 4 New slotted disk and brakes are new in front and good in back)

*  Air conditioning system upgraded to new high pressure Freon standard (New R134 Compressor, Dryer and expansion tube)  cold air.

* Fuel system, (new fuel Tank,fuel pump/lines, filter and new fuel gage sending unit in tank.)    

Could be improved:

1. The car looks stunning, however the clear-coat has some hazing on the hood, tops of fenders roof and top of rear fenders.  You may be able to use some product to make it go away. I have several pictures with it dry and several while washing the car and the water completely hides the fading.   The Car still looks good but will eventually need painted!   I'm asking,  A lower price  because of the paint.

2. The car sat for several years and I have not driven it that much, therefore the door locks and windows are stiff.

3. The rubber on the outer part of the doors that wipes the windows are cracked and will eventually need replaced.

4.  The previous owners had an alarm system installed, which I hate and would eventually remove!  Here is why, when the key is placed to start, the system goes through a check and then the starter kicks in 1-2 seconds later.  I'm not a alarm specialist or I would have removed it by now. Plus if both door locks are not fully unlocked or locked the engine will not start. (it happened once until I figured it out.)    

5. The Engine Temp needle fell off the other day. But still works. I guess this is common in the Fiero. The gage is about $70 at the fiero store.  

6. The valve covers may drip just a tiny bit as I found a little oil spot on the garage floor after a month of sitting.

Look at my other feedback and you will find that I try to be very honest. good luck I have $6,500 invested so my loss is your gain.

Please don't hesitate to contact me!

1969 Pontiac GTO Judge vs. 2006 GTO, which Goat gets your vote?

Mon, 08 Sep 2014

The Pontiac GTO was perhaps the most iconic muscle car of the '60s and early '70s. With its beefy V8 and color palette screaming for attention, it summarized in a single vehicle everything that made the era so appealing to many young people. Pontiac tried to collect just a few drops of that aura again in the 2000s with a revived GTO, but with decidedly mixed results. The performance was still there with its big V8, but the looks never quite lived up to the powertrain. Now, Generation Gap wants to know which of these Goats is the one to own.
Things are skewed immediately because the 2006 GTO here is a real ringer. It comes from famous tuner Ken Lingenfelter's collection, and it's a one-off example partially fettled by GM Performance boasting a twin-turbocharged LS2 V8 with a claimed 750 horsepower and a wide-body kit. This Goat definitely isn't what you're going to find just browsing for one to buy in the newspaper. Still, dip the throttle just a little, and this GTO pulls like a freight train. It's enough to turn the two hosts into giggling schoolboys behind the wheel.
The '69 GTO Judge here is also out of Lingenfelter's collection, but this one is all stock with a 400-cubic-inch (6.6-liter) V8 and a Ram Air hood for a claimed 366 hp. It might not have the unbelievable power of the turbo '06, but it makes up for it with style to spare.

GM recalls 61k more vehicles in three campaigns

Sun, 05 Oct 2014

Following a stop-delivery order for its new midsize trucks and a rash of recent recalls, General Motors is issuing three more campaigns covering 60,575 vehicles in North America with 57,182 of them in the US. As of October 1, the automaker has issued a total of 74 recalls (see the ridiculously long chart to the right) this year covering 26,495,070 units in the US.
The largest campaign covers 46,873 examples in the US of the 2008-2009 Pontiac G8 and 2011-2013 Chevrolet Caprice Police Patrol Vehicle imported from Australia. It's possible for the driver's knee to hit the key and make it move from the "Run" to "ACC" position while driving. GM says its Holden division is developing a fixed-blade key that's supposed to fix the problem by only allowing it to rotate toward the "On" position. There has been one crash caused by this fault but no injuries or fatalities.
The second recall is for 10,005 units of the 2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V and 2006-2007 Cadillac STS-V because "the fuel pump module electrical terminal may overheat." This can cause a flange to melt and allow the pump to leak fuel. GM specifies that the remedy for the CTS-V is replacing the fuel module and fuel tank jumper harness, but it doesn't specify how the STS-V is being repaired.

Check out the official 2013 Trans Am Hurst Edition commercial

Sat, 16 Mar 2013


The Poncho is dead. Long live the Poncho. Like certain other reoccurring personal maladies, the aftermarket community simply can't let the Trans Am go without another flare up. The guys at Trans Am Depot have worked up a quick commercial for their newest creation: The 2013 Trans Am Hurst Edition, and it watches pretty much like you'd expect it to. The footage is comprised of just about every TA male fantasy you can conceive of, from Daisy Dukes and white tank tops to tramp stamps, bikinis and ice cream cones. There simply aren't words for what you'll see below.
Of course, we like our T-Tops as much as the next guy. If you like what you see in the videos, you can pick up your very own TA by heading over to the Trans Am Depot site. The guys even have Chevrolet Camaro-based versions of the Pontiac GTO if the '77 TA treatment is too much for your tastes. Enjoy, but don't say we didn't warn you.
