You are bidding on a 1977 Pontiac Trans Am. I am selling this car for my father, who is a lifetime Pontiac Enthusiast and this car has been a part of his collection for about 5-6 years. He bought the car from the family who bought it new right here in Fort Wayne, Indiana. This car is in mostly original condition. It has never been "restored. The car is in its original color combination and has been repainted once (sometime in the 1980s) and the paint job still shows very well but does had a nick and scratch here and there as it is an older paint job. Sometime after the repaint, the car got bumped in the rear bumper, which was then repainted. very minor incident with no damage underneath. That seems to have happened in the early 90s. That is the only "accident" history I know of on the car but it was very minor, but I wanted to disclose it. When new, this car was rust-proofed and it worked! there is one small spot of rust starting on the very bottom of the passenger side fender around the bolt, other than that the car is totally solid!! This is no bondo bucket like most on the market! all original sheetmetal! The interior of the car is in fantastic shape. We installed new carpet and door sills when we purchased the car. The dash, seats and all other interior components are original and in fantastic shape. It has the original AM/FM radio that still works great it also has a WORKING 8-track tape player (eastbound and down tape not included). The AC and heat all work as they should. The car had an after market cruise control added to the car when it was new and it still works!!! When we bought the car we installed completely new braking system including full front and rear brakes and all new brake lines and master cylinder. The car had a brand new exhaust installed about 8 years ago. The engine compartment has not been restored and does show its age (see picture) but it all works as it should and the car runs and drives great and it is a blast to drive! 93000 original mileage. That is all I can think of on the car right now but please feel free to message me and ask any questions. We can also arrange to see the car in person if youd like and I encourage you to do so. The car is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end this auction at any time. A $500 NONREFUNDABLE deposit is due via paypal within 48 hours of the auction end and the car needs to be picked up in a reasonable amount of time after the auction. Buyer is responsible to arrange shipping for this vehicle. Overall this car runs, drives and shows great. Turns head going down the road and is really fun to drive. We have had a lot of fun with this car and taken it to many shows, including the Trans Am Nationals. So it still shows well. It is hard for us to part with this car but it is time anther enthusiast enjoys it. More pictures are available upon request. As I said, feel free to ask me any questions, good luck and happy bidding!!

Every few a decades, the folks running General Motors lose their minds briefly try to market a car that public doesn't see coming and often aren't ready for. In the '60s there was the rear-engine, air-cooled Chevrolet Corvair, then the mid-engine Pontiac Fiero in the '80s and the completely bizarre Chevy SSR in the 2000s. What all of these had in common was that they bucked the trend for American models of their era, for better or worse. The latest episode of Generation Gap tasked the hosts with finding two cult classic vehicles to choose between; they came come up with two of these quirky products from The General.

On the classic side, there's a 1967 Chevy Corvair Monza convertible. Being from later in the production run, it wears slightly more aerodynamic styling than the earlier, boxier examples. Hanging out back is an air-cooled, 2.7-liter flat-six pumping out a robust 95 horsepower. In the other corner is the somewhat more modern 1986 Pontiac Fiero SE with a mid-mounted, 2.5-liter "Iron Duke" four-cylinder, an engine nearly ubiquitous in GM cars of the '80s.
Judging by when they were new, the Corvair was far more successful than the Fiero with over 1.8 million sold. Of course, Ralph Nader's book Unsafe at Any Speed kind of poisoned the well, even if the poor safety reputation wasn't entirely deserved. The Fiero on the other hand only lasted for a few model years before shuffling off, but it eventually got its own performance boost with the V6 version and rather attractive GT models. Check them both out in the video and tell us in Comments which you want in your garage.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for a number of General Motors cars and crossovers bought or currently registered in the hot-climate states of Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas. As many as 40,859 units consisting of the 2007 Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent and Saturn Ion and the 2007-2009 Chevrolet Cobalt (shown) and its Pontiac G5 twin are being recalled for potential fuel leaks.

This recall is being issued due to potentially faulty fuel pump components that can crack and cause gasoline to leak from the return or supply ports and possibly cause a fire. NHTSA has not indicated how many fuel leaks or vehicle fires have been reported. As a fix, GM will replace the fuel pump modules on all affected vehicles free of charge. Since Pontiac and Saturn have been shuttered, owners will be able to go to another GM-brand dealership to have their vehicles repaired.
While the list of affected cars and crossovers varies by state and model year, if you own any of these models and live in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma or Texas, be sure to check the official notice below for more details.
Here comes the Judge. Court is in session. The verdict is in. How many more tired clichés can we come up with? It hardly seems to matter, because it's happening: Trans Am Depot has announced via the teaser video below that it is launching a 2014 GTO, complete with Carousel Red (bright orange, really) paint and full Judge badging.
The car is based on Trans Am Depot's 6T9 Goat, which, in case you don't get the reverential references, is meant to mimic the look of the 1969 Pontiac GTO. As with the company's other cars -including the 2013 Hurst Edition Trans Am we recently drove - the GTO will be based on the current Chevy Camaro, which means two doors, V8 engines and rear-wheel drive, just like the muscle cars of days past.
As for actual details of what's under the 2014 GTO's hood, we're completely left hanging. We'd expect some sort of power adder (turbo, supercharger or possibly some other form of a highly massaged version of the Camaro's V8), and we certainly know that GM has any number of hi-po crate engines to choose from.
