1967 Pontiac Firebird 326 with matching numbers. This car comes a 4 speed Hurst transmission, working radio, and is fitted for air conditioning. This is a great project car with little needing to be done. I originally had this car to use as a daily but my family has grown and I am needing something larger. The numbers are matching but a few modifications have been added to the engine such as a performance cam, an Edelbrock performer rpm manifold for a broad torque curve, and a carburetor to fit. The engine is straight piped and dumps right behind the rear wheels which gives the lope from the cam a great sound. The original paint was regimental red but had since been given a unique iguana green which changes to a deep blue based on your viewpoint. The paint is not show quality with minor surface rust but it is still a beautiful aspect of the car. The seats have been recently redone and are in great condition. The floor plan will need to be replaced as the foot wells are rusted and I was currently in the process of replacing the overhead upholstery. I currently have the exterior trim on hand but have not added it all to the car. The reader windshield of the car is missing due to a late night cruise with a lead foot. While climbing through the gears, the rear glass popped out and shattered on the road behind us. Little odds and ends stuff is being to be done with the interior and I have new emblems for the exterior that will go with the car as well.

Autoline Detroit recently played host to Bob Lutz, and, as is always the case, the former General Motors vice chairman dished out some great commentary. Lutz was promoting his new book Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business, and talk quickly turned to his role as it related to product development and high-level decision making at GM. While on the topic of brand management, Lutz revealed a few rather interesting tidbits about his former employer:
All Chevrolet vehicles were required to have five-spoke aluminum wheels and a chrome band up front, as part of the Bowtie brand's overall image.
The repairs needed for the faulty airbag inflators supplied by Takata continue to expand. Toyota initially announced a recall of 766,300 vehicles equipped with the bad part on June 11 as a followup to a campaign from 2013. Soon after, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened a preliminary evaluation into five automakers who also used the component in their models. Now, NHTSA has released the official announcement of the latest Toyota recall listing 844,277 affected cars, including the newly added 2003-2004 Pontiac Vibe.
While NHTSA's document didn't include a model-by-model breakdown, General Motors spokesperson Alan Adler estimated to Autoblog that roughly 85,000 Vibes in the US would be covered under the latest recall. Like the rest of the affected models, the airbag inflator could rupture in a crash causing the bag not to work correctly, possibly spraying metal fragments at the occupant.
Toyota spokesperson Cindy Knight told Autoblog that the reason for the disparity between the earlier press release and NHTSA document was that Toyota was continuing to comb through VINs to create a list of affected vehicles. The original number was an estimate of that process at the time. Scroll down to the recall report from NHTSA.
