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.

GM recalling over 40,000 Chevy, Pontiac and Saturn models over fuel pump woes

Mon, 01 Oct 2012 09:31:00 EST

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.

1939 Pontiac Ghost Car commands $308,000 at auction

Mon, 01 Aug 2011 17:58:00 EST

For the 1939 World's Fair, Pontiac built a Deluxe Six bodied in Plexiglass. Part of the Previews of Progress pavilion in which General Motors' Futurama showed off what was to come in the world of autos, the 'invisible' Pontiac is credited as the first transparent car in America. And there were no shortcuts taken with its body: the Plexiglass form was fabricated by the company that brought the material to market in 1933, Rohm & Haas.
The see-through sedan was sold at RM Auctions' St. John's auction in Michigan on July 30, fetching $308,000. Not bad appreciation for a domestic oddity that cost $25,000 to build when new. You can check out the high-res gallery of its innards, including copper and chrome metalwork and white moldings and wheels, and get the exhaustive details on it after the jump.
