Q. Is she reliable?
A. The car was a 14 month restoration project.
Since then I’ve been driving it now for about a year on the weekends.
Like all cars of this type they require moderate attention and respect incl. walk-around
inspection and warming the engine to atleast 160 deg. before cruising.
(the latter one due to blower and alum.conn.rods operating requirements)
The engine was professionally built with longevity in mind. It runs on 91 pump gas.
I can say it is very reliable at this point…combined in the entire build, I had to
work out a fair share of bugs, that was a long time ago. They were all minor but
nonetheless challenging and a great “ love/hate/love” experience, lol.
Q. The drive-train?
Inv. $23k here…it’s totally kick-butt! “Going to last a long time”
Stock but new rubber or poly incl. subframe-body donuts, leaf springs, shocks, etc.
Q. Are there still areas for improvement? Of course, but in this car it’s principally
in body and then paint of your choice. In regard to that, in layman’s terms it’s “a 20 footer”,
which is not toooo shameful for me, lol. I did enter into a few car shows for joy and smiles!
Believe me, she’s a real head turner, enthusiastic, and a blurrr, oops, a blast to drive, lol.
Lucky and happy will be the new owner of this car, hopefully a fellow Pontiac lover.
...includes the hood too (classic ram air scoops model)...didn't want to cut a hole in it.
(VFN Fiberglass sells an awesome same style lightweight hinged hood, very reasonable price.)
This car is my pride and joy dream car.
I’ve put tons of time and dedication into her.
I lost alot of sleep, endured alot of unknown, and lost some hair too.
She’s one 'badass' car and sadly now I am forced to sell her.

When an old car or truck offers its dying breath in your driveway and you just don't have the financial or mechanical wherewithal to resuscitate it yet again, you traditionally have to go to the trouble of calling a flatbed or a tow truck to come haul it away. That usually helps to put a few bucks in your wallet and helps recycle some of the vehicle's parts, but the transaction doesn't seem as final or perversely satisfying as the dispatch service that this New Way Cobra Magnum garbage truck offers.
Okay, okay, so this refuse hauler isn't actually designed for this sort of thing, but it's oddly comforting to know that a sanitation truck can compact a hapless Pontiac Grand Am into oblivion. Next time, we won't feel so guilty about slipping that rusty charcoal grille onto the curb next to the cans on garbage day. Watch the carnage by scrolling below.
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.
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.
