Do you remember 1985?
It was the year of Live Aid, the beginning of VH-1 and the end of "The Price is Right" with Johnny Olson. Bobby Ewing was run over by his ex-sister-in-law's car, "Dynasty"s Amanda Carrington's wedding turned into the "Moldavian Massacre", "K.I.T.T." started into his final "Knight Rider" season, "Miami Vice" into it's second. "The Breakfast Club" soon became one of the most popular movies in 1985, Marty McFly time-travelled with his DeLorean "Back to the Future" and created a cult.
It was the year of "Born in the USA", "A view to a kill", "Sussudio", "Welcome to the Pleasure Dome" and "I want to know what love is", and it's was also the last official year for carburetor Firebirds before the fuel injection moved in - the last year of the grumpy sounding "High Output" Trans Ams.

I bought this beautiful, award winning 1985 Trans Am this early summer with less than 32.000 mls from the Clawsin Car Show from the second owner who drove it only to classic car events. The first owner once stored the Pontiac in a garage for almost 13 years of the 22 years he owned it and created a wonderful time capsule.
But every car guy will confirm you just don't store a car that long time without having some flaws coming along - so I had to do some improvements on this Firebird: The 4 barrel carburetor (Quadrajet) got refurbished, all hoses replaced. The Alternator got replaced, also headlights, foglights, headliner, hood insulation, rear wheel brakes (completely incl. emergency brake cable), all system liquids/fluids and the windshield washer pump.
Soon I found myself cruising around every night with this classic 80's T-Top Bird and added almost 4.000 mls during the summer - way too much for this low mileage status. And honestly, there' wasn't one single day I didn't get thumbs up or buying offers - this Trans Am really wows the crowd and causes a stir, which makes me think it better should be kept in this fantastic condition on the long run.
That's why I rather see it in somebody's hands who won't drive it every day and treats it the way it deserves.

The body and floor panels are all clean, the engine looks and runs like brand new. The four speed automatic shifts smooth and soft, the original exhaust rumbles like in the good old muscle car days. Everything works fine, even the concealed headlight motors and the cruise control. Nothing is worn out or cracked, no filthy smell (non smoker car). If you know cars, then you also know about GM's quality issues - one reason why so many of these stylish, sleek Firebirds became extinct. You'll have to dig deep finding a better Trans Am than this one, especially if it gotta have the rare silver paint or the rare vinyl bucket seats. This Trans Am is just ready to go - how soon is now?

This is not just another low mileage car which will fall apart with the first time turning the key - this Bird really kicks ass!

Official USPS Muscle Cars stamps coming to a mailbox near you

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 13:59:00 EST

As much as our digital lives have cut down on our trips to the post office, there are still times that sending "snail mail" is necessary. With us car lovers in mind and philately in their hearts, the good folks at the United States Postal Service will introduce a new stamp design called "Muscle Cars" starting on February 22.
Designed by artist Tom Fritz, the new collection of stamps consist of five classic muscle cars: 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, 1967 Shelby GT-500, 1966 Pontiac GTO and 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda. In addition to just the stamps, the USPS is also commemorating the new series with plenty of collectable memorabilia. Previous car-related stamps include 50s Sporty Cars from 2005 and 50s Fins and Chrome from 2008.

Tony Stewart to star in Smoke Is The Bandit web series

Mon, 10 Mar 2014 17:03:00 EST

NASCAR driver Tony Stewart is making good use of his nickname Smoke in new videos inspired by the 1970s classic Smokey and the Bandit. The original is one of the quintessential automotive movies of its era with a fantastic combination of slapstick comedy and great car stunts in a Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. If you've never seen it, check it out immediately.
In the new six-part Smoke IS the Bandit web series, Stewart takes on the role of Burt Reynolds' famous character complete with huge mustache. But instead of trying to smuggle cases of Coors beer it's Mobil 1 oil. The series promises to recreate many of the famous scenes from the movie and includes cameos from other NASCAR drivers.
To complete the look, future videos just need a quality replacement for a young Sally Field to ride shotgun. It would also be really cool if Reynolds could make a brief appearance at some point. Scroll down to check out the trailer and the first episode in the series.

GM expands ignition switch recall to over 1.3 million cars amid climbing death toll

Tue, 25 Feb 2014 16:00:00 EST



588,000 Saturn Sky, Saturn Ion, Pontiac Solstice and Chevy HHR models join the 778,000 cars already being recalled.
General Motors has announced a massive expansion of a 778,000-unit recall we told you about two weeks ago, doubling not only the total number of cars affected but expanding the recall beyond Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 models previously mentioned. The recall originally centered around ignition switches that could slip out of the "run" position if jostled or if any weight was applied to the key in the cylinder.
