1966 Pontiac GTO convertible with original interior
It is a mostly unrestored car. Everything I have done to it is with an eye to drivability, it is returnable to
completely original in one weekend. It was painted once about 9 years ago, pinstripe removed, very limited
bodywork required - body is straight as an arrow and pictures during paintwork and reciept are supplied in the
documentation. I have provided pictures down both flanks. The interior is original and untouched, down to the
weatherstripping on the doors and original knobs and buttons. The sticker for the original owner's parking pass
from where he worked in is still affixed to the rear view mirror. The knobs and buttons have an original patina,
the headlights and brights appear to be original equipment. I have a copy of the original order sheet, original
options, owner's manual, PHS documentation, and the warranty card mailed to the original owner, Mr. James Brock of
Wisconsin who took delivery in May 1966. He was 48. It was kept by him until he was 89 years old, passing it to
his son, in July of 2007, where it was titled again in Wisconsin. The car title almost immediately passed to a man
who knew the family and had an eye on the car who lived in Kansas, that same month, so I consider him to be the
second owner. At the time, it had 67,832 miles on it. He spent over 10k on paintwork, then appeared to have a
change of heart and sold the car to me. He did not drive the car very much, as I purchased the car less than 2k
miles after he bought it and less that a year after it left the body shop with 69,522 miles. I have all paperwork
documenting this and they are photographed above. motor.

Lutz says Washington killed Pontiac, next G6 was to be ATS derivative

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 12:58:00 EST

How many people think Buick or GMC should have gotten the axe instead of Pontiac? You can't see it, but I'm raising my hand. Autoweek reports that former Vice Chairman of GM, Bob Lutz, has indicated that things didn't have to end up the way they did.
"The Feds said, 'Yeah, how much money have you made on Pontiac in the last 10 years?' and the answer was, 'Nothing.'"
In a talk given at the Petersen Automotive Museum for the Inside the MotoMan Studio series, Lutz says "The Feds said, 'Yeah, how much money have you made on Pontiac in the last 10 years?' and the answer was, 'Nothing.' So, it goes. And when the guy who is handing you the check for $53 billion says, 'I don't want Pontiac, drop Pontiac or you don't get the money,' it doesn't take you very long to make up your mind." Lutz even added that the next-generation Pontiac G6 would have benefitted from the rear-wheel-drive platform of the Cadillac ATS. How awesome would that have been?

GM expands ignition switch recall to over 1.3 million cars amid climbing death toll

Tue, 25 Feb 2014 16:00:00 EST



588,000 Saturn Sky, Saturn Ion, Pontiac Solstice and Chevy HHR models join the 778,000 cars already being recalled.
General Motors has announced a massive expansion of a 778,000-unit recall we told you about two weeks ago, doubling not only the total number of cars affected but expanding the recall beyond Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 models previously mentioned. The recall originally centered around ignition switches that could slip out of the "run" position if jostled or if any weight was applied to the key in the cylinder.

CNN chronicles young girl building Pontiac Fiero

Fri, 26 Oct 2012 12:45:00 EST

At fourteen years of age, Kathryn DiMaria has already done what many self-proclaimed gearheads won't even attempt in their lifetimes. The Dearborn, Michigan teen is rebuilding a car from the ground up.
The intrepid youngster asked her parents when she was just twelve to start a Pontiac Fiero project, even offering to pony up all the funds herself. Father, Jerry DiMaria only expected the project to last a few months, but two years later, Kathryn is still at it. In this CNN video, the two are at Maker Faire (a DIY festival) rebuilding a 3.4-liter V6 engine out of a Chevrolet Camaro to replace the 2.8-liter mill found in the Fiero.
The whole family hast pitched in, with Kathryn's mother teaching her how to sew in order to complete the interior, father Jerry providing much of the technical know-how, and even her sister is chronicling Kathryn's progress through photos. Jerry even started a thread in a Fiero forum which has been live for two years and is now 22 pages long. Of the project, one forum member wrote, "welcome to the madness."
