Here is a PHS documented 69 Firebird 400 convertible, it was stored in a garage from 1982 - 2008, I am the third owner. It can't be called a survivor but very few reproduction parts were used in the restoration other than wear and tear parts like the weather strip, interior, top and suspension parts. The original 400 was bored .030 over and was rebuilt with a roller cam and rockers for performance and reliability (see dyno sheet). New aluminum radiator, runs cool even in AZ. It has the original rebuilt Quadrajet and original distributor converted to Pertonix. I have the original exhaust manifolds but Ram Air long branch manifolds are installed, dual stainless Magnaflow exhaust sounds awesome. The motor and trans have less then 500 miles on them, the car runs and drives very well. The car comes with the numbers matching Turbo 400 AT but was converted to a 4 speed using a rebuilt 1969 Pontiac Muncie M20 and an original 69 Hurst shifter and linkage. The sub frame and A Arms were powder coated and the entire suspension was rebuilt, I added a larger front sway bar for improved handling and it has new KYB gas shocks all around.

Jim Sharp of Elkhorn, Wisconsin needs a red 1967 Pontiac GTO to make his dad's Father's Day, possibly his last one, something extra special.
Back in the '60s, Jim's dad, Ken, drove a cherry red 1967 GTO to California for a job. He met a girl, got married and decided his wife's 1965 Ford Mustang was more fuel efficient than the Goat and the GTO was sold. As the story almost always goes, Ken has had seller's regret ever since.
Jim always meant to find a 1967 GTO and, with his dad's help, restore it. But life got in the way, time slipped by and Ken was recently diagnosed with esophageal cancer and given about three months to live.

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.
We'll be honest: the actual cars in Jerry Seinfeld's hit internet series, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, typically take a back seat to the celebrities in the front row. Seinfeld usually throws in a few lines about his classic wheels in the first minute or so, and then moves on to the important business of sprightly conversation and pithy one-liners. It's great.
This time around, with legendary motormouth Howard Stern riding shotgun, the 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge that might have been a co-star, gets forgotten about almost completely. Instead, Stern spends a tremendous amount of screen time extolling the virtues of his therapy sessions, attempts to dive into Seinfeld's prowess as a lover and generally makes a nuisance of himself. Pretty much to plan, then.
Scroll below to hear Howard accuse Jerry of acting like Jesus, just before declaring himself the greatest radio personality in the history of the business.
