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!!

The intrepid youngster asked her parents when she was just twelve to start a Pontiac Fiero project, even offering to pony up all the funds herself. Father, Jerry DiMaria only expected the project to last a few months, but two years later, Kathryn is still at it. In this CNN video, the two are at Maker Faire (a DIY festival) rebuilding a 3.4-liter V6 engine out of a Chevrolet Camaro to replace the 2.8-liter mill found in the Fiero.
The whole family hast pitched in, with Kathryn's mother teaching her how to sew in order to complete the interior, father Jerry providing much of the technical know-how, and even her sister is chronicling Kathryn's progress through photos. Jerry even started a thread in a Fiero forum which has been live for two years and is now 22 pages long. Of the project, one forum member wrote, "welcome to the madness."
General Motors has announced that it will be recalling 778,562 compact cars after six people were killed in accidents, partially due to the airbags' failure to deploy. An issue with the ignition switch is causing the airbag issues, as well as causing the engine and other components to shut off without warning. The recall covers the 2005 to 2007 model year Chevrolet Cobalt and 2007 Pontiac G5. (Note that the Cobalt pictured above is a 2009 model.)
According to a report from Automotive News, a number of factors can cause the ignition to switch out of the run position, including weights on the key ring, rough or bumpy roads or other "jarring" events. Any of these situations could lead to some vehicle components not functioning properly.
There have been five fatal front-impact crashes that took the lives of six people, although as a GM spokesman noted, all five of the crashes happened off road and at high speed. In each of these cases, though, the lack of airbags wasn't the only lethal factor - alcohol and failure to wear a seat belt also played a role. Outside of the fatal accidents, there have been 17 other crashes where airbags didn't deploy. It's unclear if any of these crashes were caused by the engine shutting off.
