 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.

GM recalling 426,000 sedans over faulty transmission shift cable

Fri, 21 Sep 2012 09:58:00 EST

General Motors is recalling some 426,240 sedans that may have a faulty transmission shift cable, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report this morning. The recall concerns a fault within four-speed automatic transmissions equipped on 2007-2010 Saturn Aura models, and 2008-2010 Chevrolet Malibu and Pontiac G6 models.
The report specifies that tabs on the transmission shift cable may fracture and separate. Such a fault could cause a discrepancy between the actual position of the transmission and the apparent position of the shift lever.
GM is currently working to notify owners of the vehicles in question, and dealers will check and replace shift cables free of charge. Scroll down to read the complete NHTSA report.

1969 Pontiac GTO Judge vs. 2006 GTO, which Goat gets your vote?

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 17:00:00 EST

The Pontiac GTO was perhaps the most iconic muscle car of the '60s and early '70s. With its beefy V8 and color palette screaming for attention, it summarized in a single vehicle everything that made the era so appealing to many young people. Pontiac tried to collect just a few drops of that aura again in the 2000s with a revived GTO, but with decidedly mixed results. The performance was still there with its big V8, but the looks never quite lived up to the powertrain. Now, Generation Gap wants to know which of these Goats is the one to own.
Things are skewed immediately because the 2006 GTO here is a real ringer. It comes from famous tuner Ken Lingenfelter's collection, and it's a one-off example partially fettled by GM Performance boasting a twin-turbocharged LS2 V8 with a claimed 750 horsepower and a wide-body kit. This Goat definitely isn't what you're going to find just browsing for one to buy in the newspaper. Still, dip the throttle just a little, and this GTO pulls like a freight train. It's enough to turn the two hosts into giggling schoolboys behind the wheel.
The '69 GTO Judge here is also out of Lingenfelter's collection, but this one is all stock with a 400-cubic-inch (6.6-liter) V8 and a Ram Air hood for a claimed 366 hp. It might not have the unbelievable power of the turbo '06, but it makes up for it with style to spare.

Watch as Hot Rod goes from El Paso to LA the hard way

Tue, 21 Feb 2012 20:01:00 EST

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.
