 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 another 2.7 million vehicles in five separate campaigns

Thu, 15 May 2014 09:57:00 EST

The recalls keep rolling in from General Motors, evidently keen to avoid repeating the mistakes of the ignition-switch debacle and clean house. This time they're all coming at once, with five separate recalls announced together covering approximately 2.7 million vehicles.
The largest of the five actions involves over 2.4 million units of the previous-generation Chevrolet Malibu and Malibu Maxx, Pontiac G6 and Saturn Aura in order to fix brake light wiring harness, which have been found to be susceptible to corrosion. The recall is separate from the 56k Aura sedans which GM recently recalled over faulty shift cables, not to mention the previous massive recall of 1.3 million vehicles - some of them the same models - but appears to have resulted from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation that started with the G6 almost a year ago.
The second-largest campaign involves the 2014 Chevy Malibu, specifically those fitted with GM's 2.5-liter engine and stop/start system, approximately 140,000 examples of which has been found to have problematic brakes. The issue does not appear to be connected to the recall of 8k Malibu and Buick LaCrosse sedans (also involving brake woes) which we reported upon last week. Four crashes have been reported in such models, but GM admits it's not yet clear if the problem was a contributing factor in the accidents.

David Hasselhoff's own KITT replica up for auction

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 16:03:00 EST

Depending on when and where you grew up, the name David Hasselhoff likely conjures up images of Knight Rider, Baywatch, pop singer, or possibly a washed-up TV actor, but one thing that can never be taken away from The Hoff is his connection to one of the greatest automotive icons in pop culture. The Knight Industries Two Thousand, usually shortened to simply KITT, was the real star of Knight Rider for many fans. Based on a Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, the car combined snarky quips for comedy relief and stunts to provide much of the show's actions. Now, Julien's Auctions is selling Hasselhoff's own replica as part of a larger sale of the actor's personal memorabilia collection.
This recreation is based on a 1986 Firebird and comes with all of the tech on the inside that now seems hilariously outdated, like the yoke steering wheel and plethora of buttons. The interior also thoughtfully includes a voice box with over 4,000 sound clips from the show. With a 5.0-liter V8 and an automatic transmission, performance is likely adequate and period correct. According to the listing, this car was created by fans and given to the Hoff. Sadly, the replica doesn't convert to Super Pursuit Mode like KITT could in later seasons, and we most associate KITT with conventional front-hinged doors to go with the power t-tops and ejector seats.
Bidding currently sits $27,500 with eight bids, since starting at $15,000. Julien's predicts it will sell for between $30,000 and $50,000. If there is some nostalgia for KITT in your heart, there is still plenty of time to bid.

Pontiac Firebird in latest Generation Gap scrap

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 16:45:00 EST

Generation Gap is mining the Lingenfelter collection again this week to compare two very different interpretations of the Pontiac Firebird. An original 1968 example goes toe-to-toe with a 2010 Lingenfelter Trans Am to see whether the old man or the modern re-imagining takes the crown.
Being from the Lingenfelter collection, both cars are absolutely immaculate. The '68 packs a Pontiac 350-cubic-inch (5.7-liter) V8 with a claimed 320 horsepower and some classic, muscular style with a hood-mounted tach. Plus, it's painted in an understated shade of green that you don't usually see.
In the other corner is Lingenfelter's pumped-up take on the classic shape based on the modern Camaro, and this is just one of six concept versions ever made. It wears an eye-catching, vintage-inspired livery of blue with a white stripe package. Under its shaker hood is a 455-cubic-inch (7.5-liter) V8 with a reported 655 hp and 610 pound-feet of torque.
