1970 GTO Ram Air III four speed...95%+ rust free car with great color combination. Original sheet metal with no rust floors, doors, fenders, trunk lid, front valance and frame. The only body work was done at the back bottoms corner of each 1/4 panel (pictured). The original hood was kinked and replaced with a very nice non-ram air hood but car also comes with a decent repairable ram air hood. Very nice front bumper and valance as is rear bumper and tail lights. Fenders have never been patched. Doors shut amazingly, all sheet metal gaps are great. 
Car is complete except original motor is gone. M20 transmission is non-match but is a period correct 1970, complete with shifter, linkage, bell housing and flywheel. Original 10 bolt 3.55 posi, boxed control arms and sway bar still under car. Upper ram air pan, flapper and scoops are near perfect and original. Lower ram air pan missing but ram air pull cable and under dash bracket/knob are still there and works great. Interior isn't terrible. Driver's seat is torn in 2-3 spots. The rest of interior is driver quality. 4 speed console is nice. Dash is cracked and headliner has opened up in two seams. Rear package tray and window area are rock solid, inside and out. Paint is faded but it will buff out for a driver. I do have a complete '70 YS motor with under 5K miles on rebuild, that can be bought separately. I also know where there is a WS short block that is correct for this car.


I have a lot more pictures if needed. Email all questions or call for more info.

GM knew about fatal Chevy ignition problem decade before recall

Fri, 21 Feb 2014 10:15:00 EST

Well, this is not good for General Motors. Following a report last week that GM was recalling 778,000 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 compacts over concerns that the ignition could switch out of the "run" position without warning, USA Today reports that the Detroit-based behemoth knew about the issue, which affected 2005 to 2007 Cobalts (the Cobalt shown above and in the gallery is from 2010) and 2007 Pontiac G5s, all the way back in 2004.
The information comes from a deposition in a civil lawsuit against GM, obtained by USA Today, which claims that a GM engineer experienced the issue while the then-new model was undergoing testing. The issue was "solved" when a technical service bulletin was issued in 2005, informing dealers to install a snap-on key cover on the cars of customers who complained about the issue. According to the Cobalt's program engineering manager, Gary Altman, the cover was an "improvement, it was not a fix to the issue."
The case where the depositions were made was from 2010, and involved Brooke Melton, a 29-year-old pediatric nurse in Georgia who was killed on her birthday. At the time, police claimed she was going too fast on a wet, rural road, although it later came out through the black box that her car's ignition had come out of the "run" position at least three seconds before the accident (the max amount of time a black box records before a wreck), disabling her airbags, power steering and anti-lock brakes. According to USA Today, police said Melton was "traveling too fast for the roadway conditions," although it's impossible to know if she'd have been in the wreck, which injured the occupants of another vehicle, had her 2005 Chevy not shut off. GM settled the Melton family's case, although the details remain confidential.

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.
