 This car is currently located in Glendale Colorado and, aside from the fact that it will probably only be able to drive up a flat-bed tow truck before it dies, it's not too bad.

When I purchased the car in 2011, I was unaware that the thermostat was inoperative, which caused the radiator not to run, which made it crack and burst several months later. I used a pour-in sealant to buy some time for me to get it repaired, but I fear that the remnants of the sealant have been continuing to cause issues to this day. Since I bought it,

The radiator has been replaced.
The air conditioner has been repaired
The thermostat has been replaced
The radio has been upgraded, but that means the buttons on the steering wheel no longer work.

That said, due to the overheating issues the thermostat may be dead again. The oil and transmission fluid was changed less than 2000 miles ago. The service station has reported that

There is an oil pan gasket leak.
There is a transmission fluid leak.
There is a power steering fluid leak.
There may be a coolant leak.
The heat shield rattles against the engine when it is running.

Furthermore, the I believe the last owner did something strange with the wiring, much of it has been cleared up, but there are still a few wiring problems that interfere with the tail lights working properly. I believe this destroyed the onboard computer.

If you are still reading this, then I am pleased. As you can see, what I am trying to sell is a project car. Aside from the computer, everything I've mentioned is fairly simple fix for someone who has the time and inclination to do so. The only reason I don't drive it to work anymore is because I'm tired of fixing the overheating problem. I don't have the time to work out this radiator/thermostat deal again, but that's the only stopper from getting it running again. I've never experienced any issues while it's driving, either I've fixed everything or identified the problems (like the heat shield rattling). Everything else is in pretty good condition. That said, this car is an "As Is" sale. I've done my best to explain all the issues I'm aware of, but I'm not responsible if I missed one, or if it falls off your tow truck before you get back. So if you're interested, let me know. Feel free to ask any questions you may have, and if you don't like the sounds of it, then don't bother. I'd rather this car go to someone who wants to work on it than melt it down, but I'm going back to college and I need the money now.
Remember, you'll have to pick it up in a flatbed, I'm not bringing it to you. Also, it's titled in NC, which requires ownership changes to be done in front of a notary. So we're need to my bank to complete the transaction. It's registered in the state of Colorado, and that means that it has passed an emissions test which is valid until 7/23/2014.

eBay Find of the Day: 1967 Pontiac GTO Monkeemobile

Sun, 29 Apr 2012 18:01:00 EST

Say what you will about The Monkees, but the guys in the band had great taste in automobiles. Take the Monkeemobile, for example. Built off a 1967 Pontiac GTO Convertible, the custom featured genuinely interesting bodywork and some wild engine bolt-ons. If you're a fan of 1960s pop and yearn to relive the genre's glory days, eBay Motors may have what you need. A recreation of the 1967 Monkeemobile has showed up for auction. This particular replica was built by Dakota County Customs using an four-speed GTO, just like the original.
Built for the band's 45th anniversary and the final Monkees tour last year, this Monkeemobile is faithful down to every last detail. Unfortunately, the trumpet exhaust poking out of the front fender wells and the massive gold-flake blower are for show only. Seems fitting.
If you like what you see, this machine is up for bid in Richfield, Minnesota with two days left on the auctions. So far, bidding as whipped up to $60,000 with the reserve not met. Head over to eBay Motors to have a look.

GM knew about fatal Chevy ignition problem decade before recall

Fri, 21 Feb 2014 10:15:00 EST

Well, this is not good for General Motors. Following a report last week that GM was recalling 778,000 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 compacts over concerns that the ignition could switch out of the "run" position without warning, USA Today reports that the Detroit-based behemoth knew about the issue, which affected 2005 to 2007 Cobalts (the Cobalt shown above and in the gallery is from 2010) and 2007 Pontiac G5s, all the way back in 2004.
The information comes from a deposition in a civil lawsuit against GM, obtained by USA Today, which claims that a GM engineer experienced the issue while the then-new model was undergoing testing. The issue was "solved" when a technical service bulletin was issued in 2005, informing dealers to install a snap-on key cover on the cars of customers who complained about the issue. According to the Cobalt's program engineering manager, Gary Altman, the cover was an "improvement, it was not a fix to the issue."
The case where the depositions were made was from 2010, and involved Brooke Melton, a 29-year-old pediatric nurse in Georgia who was killed on her birthday. At the time, police claimed she was going too fast on a wet, rural road, although it later came out through the black box that her car's ignition had come out of the "run" position at least three seconds before the accident (the max amount of time a black box records before a wreck), disabling her airbags, power steering and anti-lock brakes. According to USA Today, police said Melton was "traveling too fast for the roadway conditions," although it's impossible to know if she'd have been in the wreck, which injured the occupants of another vehicle, had her 2005 Chevy not shut off. GM settled the Melton family's case, although the details remain confidential.

Looking back at Oprah's free-car giveaway 10 years later

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 00:01:00 EST

Oprah kicked off her 19th season in dramatic fashion by giving all 276 members of the studio audience a free car.
Molly Vielweber's Pontiac G6 appears unremarkable at first glance. It wears forest green paint, rolls on five-spoke aluminum wheels, and it has a sizeable scrape in the driver's side door, the scar of a decade's worth of hard use. You wouldn't notice it parked at a big box store or cruising on the highway. Pontiac made hundreds of thousands of G6s in the 2000s, and a lot are still on the road. It's unremarkable in every way except for the front license plate, which reads, "Oprah 6."
