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.

If you're an automotive engineer being tormented by an immortal being made of fire, then wouldn't you think it best to have a custom coupe called the FireBreather for your getaway car? That's the FireBreather in the image above, adorned by the red wings that once fronted the Pontiac Firebird, running away from a black cloud of evil in a trailer for the movie Jinn.

The Jinn is eternal evil, always waiting for the chance to make things float across rooms before going on homicidal urban rampages. The FireBreather is a Gen-V Chevrolet Camaro - from the V6 to the ZL1 - that's been through Classic Design Concepts' extensive list of exterior and interior modifications, including entirely new front and rear fascias and side skirts, sway bars and springs, Pirelli P Zeroes and an available Edelbrock supercharger.
The movie - FireBreathing chase scenes and all - was shot in Monroe, Michigan. You can watch the trailer below, but since the FireBreather only get a couple of seconds on screen, you can find out more about it on Street Legal TV and its official site.
You don't have to be born in the 1960s or 1970s to be able to recognize the General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard and the Pontiac Trans Am from Smokey and the Bandit. These old school four-wheeled stars seem to transcend demographics thanks to the miles of film that show the orange 1969 Dodge Charger and the jet-black 1977 Pontiac Trans Am performing seemingly impossible stunts.

The folks at Hot Rod magazine are obviously hip to this fact, and they put together a fun video in tribute of the instantly recognizable duo. Hit the jump to watch on as Sam Young and James Smith replace Bo Duke and The Bandit for a bit of dirt-road shenanigans in a pair of otherwise well cared for classics. We're not so sure we'd call it the best chase scene ever, but it sure looks like a lot of fun.
More importantly, which of these two cars would you rather own? Have your say in our poll below.
There are few things simultaneously more romantic and idiotic than taking a road trip in a beaten-down heap of a car. Trust us. We know. David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of Hot Rod Magazine fame recently undertook an epic trip from El Paso, Texas to Los Angeles with the express goal of doing so for under $1,500, including the purchase price of a vehicle, food, lodging, repairs and, most importantly, fuel. With this in mind, the duo settled on a 1972 Pontiac Catalina for a lofty $650. Hilarity ensues.
Realizing that no one actually wants a Catalina sulking around the shop, Freiburger and Finnegan put the car up for auction on eBay Motors the instant they had the title in hand. By the time they rolled into Hot Rod HQ, the vehicle sold for a little over $500.
The video is part of a new series called Roadkill that should document similar adventures. Keep your eyes peeled for more calamity-soaked clips in the near future. In the meantime, hit the jump to check it out yourself.
