1965 Pontiac Gto Barn Find 3 2 Barrel Carburetors on 2040-cars
Jacksonville, Florida, United States
1965 Pontiac GTO. This car is a true Barn Find. I took a couple of pictures of it in the barn and coming out. This appears to be a pretty rare GTO. It has Air Conditioning, Tilt Wheel, Full Gauges and 3 2 Barrel Carburetors. The Engine code is YJ which indicates that this is a 1965 421 C.I.D. with 3x2 Carburetors. The car was being restored, years ago. The owner ran into some problems and the car was stored away in a barn for years. It has now been pulled out of the barn and is up for sale. The car appears to be pretty complete. I cannot guarantee that everything is present, but it looks complete. The engine was rebuilt, before the car was put in the barn. I have no idea of it's condition now. It may run, if installation is completed. The body is very solid. I only found one very small rust spot on the whole car. It is on the passenger's side quarter panel, near the bottom. I do not know the true mileage on the car. The Odometer was set back to zero, so the mileage is incorrect. The interior is in the car and looks good. The seats are nice and solid looking. The door panels are nice, but may be replacements from Year One. The Steering Wheel has all of the original wood missing. I do not know how this could have happened. There is no Headliner. The Carpet looks good and is probably newer replacement. I am posting good pictures and will try to answer any questions through email. I am listing this car with a low start price and no reserve. It will sell to the highest bidder. I may be able to assist with delivery, for a fee, within a few hundred miles of Jacksonville, Florida.

General Motors has announced another set of recalls, covering some 2.42 million cars in the United States. For those keeping track, The General has now recalled over 15 million cars worldwide this year due to various issues.
Fri, 28 Oct 2011 09:29:00 EST
Here's the breakdown for this most recent set of recalls:
1,339,355 - Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia models from the 2009 to 2014 model years; Saturn Outlook models from the 2009 to 2010 model years
This isn't the first time we've reported positive news about General Motors retaining former Pontiac owners. Get a few more stories like this latest report from Edmund's Auto Observer, and it will mark an ongoing positive trend for GM. Edmunds.com crunched the numbers to see how well the General is hanging on to customers after shutting out the lights at Pontiac, and it found that nearly 40 percent of Pontiac owners stayed with a vehicle from a General Motors brand.

The numbers are a little lower than an earlier R.L. Polk & Company study, but Edmunds says General Motors is keeping more former Pontiac buyers than it has since 2007. Most are turning to vehicles from Chevrolet, especially during January and February of 2011, when GM incentivized Pontiac owners to stay under the umbrella. Those moves seem to have worked, and 28.1 percent of Pontiac owners trading up made the jump into a Bowtie.
Buyers that have gone elsewhere have largely stayed loyal to Domestic automakers, with Ford picking up the most conquests from Pontiac, with 9.4 percent switching. Toyota and Honda picked up 7.4 percent of the pool of former Pontiac drivers. The numbers are defying any predictions that Pontiac buyers would completely exit the General Motors fold, and have climbed up closer to parity with the retention figures of other GM brands from a 2009 low of only 16 percent retention.
NASCAR driver Tony Stewart is making good use of his nickname Smoke in new videos inspired by the 1970s classic Smokey and the Bandit. The original is one of the quintessential automotive movies of its era with a fantastic combination of slapstick comedy and great car stunts in a Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. If you've never seen it, check it out immediately.
In the new six-part Smoke IS the Bandit web series, Stewart takes on the role of Burt Reynolds' famous character complete with huge mustache. But instead of trying to smuggle cases of Coors beer it's Mobil 1 oil. The series promises to recreate many of the famous scenes from the movie and includes cameos from other NASCAR drivers.
To complete the look, future videos just need a quality replacement for a young Sally Field to ride shotgun. It would also be really cool if Reynolds could make a brief appearance at some point. Scroll down to check out the trailer and the first episode in the series.
