Nice 1979 Pontiac Trans Am. Has WS6 package with 4 wheel disc brakes and 8" wide wheels. Needs some interior work but drives good. Is currently registered and driven regularly. Selling this for a close friend who had to move and couldn't take it with him. He originally put this car together for his son to drive. Everything was done to make it road worthy. Brakes, suspension, etc. Axle seals were replaced. Rebuilt carb installed. Recently painted with new decals.(About 8 months ago). Car was sanded down to primer and only a small half inch rust spot was found behind one of the wheel flares. Repaired it and then car was professionally painted. Very little rust in this southern car. One hole I found in the passenger front floor pan. Fix that and put in new carpet and headliner and you will have a great driver. We are including the original interior door panels with new clips. I would replace them with new panels though to make it nice.Has minor issue with the controls for directing airflow for AC and heat. Probably vacuum control related. Always blows on the floor. AC is not blowing cold although it did work recently. May need charged.Also the wiper motor has been replaced but the switch for it is a little funky. Only working on high speed. That part was not available new when we were working on it. I just took it for a 50 mile cruise in the country today and it is a great car. My son loves it! Wish I could afford to buy it for him. :) Small issue with trans linkage. Sometimes doesn't go right into gear without moving shift lever around. Once in, it drives and shifts great. No slipping! Kick down for passing works fine. Trunk floor looks beautiful! See the pics. I can send specific pictures if you ask. Here is a link to
Collector Car Market Review Value Reporthttp://collectorcarmarket.com/menus/ccmprcs/79pofiam.html
I would rate this car somewhere between #3 and #4 condition. It shows the value around $9500 in #4 condition. #3 condition value is around $15000. Body is really solid! Great car to drive as is or complete the restoration. All the hard work has been done.

Generation Gap is mining the Lingenfelter collection again this week to compare two very different interpretations of the Pontiac Firebird. An original 1968 example goes toe-to-toe with a 2010 Lingenfelter Trans Am to see whether the old man or the modern re-imagining takes the crown.

Being from the Lingenfelter collection, both cars are absolutely immaculate. The '68 packs a Pontiac 350-cubic-inch (5.7-liter) V8 with a claimed 320 horsepower and some classic, muscular style with a hood-mounted tach. Plus, it's painted in an understated shade of green that you don't usually see.
In the other corner is Lingenfelter's pumped-up take on the classic shape based on the modern Camaro, and this is just one of six concept versions ever made. It wears an eye-catching, vintage-inspired livery of blue with a white stripe package. Under its shaker hood is a 455-cubic-inch (7.5-liter) V8 with a reported 655 hp and 610 pound-feet of torque.
Bob Lutz was one of the forces behind bringing the Holden Monaro to the United States, as the ill-fated Pontiac GTO in 2004. And while that car received critical acclaim, it was a sales disappointment. Now, Road & Track is reporting that our suspicions were correct - Pontiac was working on a two-door, G8-based coupe before it was shuttered.

In that R&T article, which is no longer available online, Lutz explained that the new GTO would solve many of the issues found in the original. Car Advice speculates that the new model would have look like a rebadged version of the Holden Coupe 60 Concept from 2008, a conclusion we also came to.
That car would have been a big departure from the 2004 to 2006 GTO. It has an extremely long hood and short rear deck, with an almost fastback roofline and a wide greenhouse with a tall beltline. The wheel arches were very pronounced, and the chin and rocker panel splitters gave it a race-ready look. Would it have been enough to make the GTO work in the US? We think it might of, but it looks like we'll never know.
We like cars, and we like art. Naturally, Chris Labrooy's Auto Aerobics series - computer-generated images of some seriously contorted 1968 Pontiac Bonnevilles floating in mid-air - instantly clicked with us. If the Pontiacs weren't floating or hollow, we could be fooled into believing the image is real. But where's the fun in that?
Check out the gallery we included of Labrooy's Bonneville art, and feel free too head over to his website for some Formula One humor.
