1970 GTO in excellent condition.
What it's not: This is not a concours numbers matching car. It's not a perfect car, it has what I would describe as minor imperfections that would be typical for a car that is driven only occasionally to local cruise-ins and shows.
What it is: The car underwent a full frame off restoration by myself several years ago. I restored the car to suit my personal tastes which is the muscle car era of the early to mid seventies. The car retains it's basically stock appearance but under the hood is lots of after market performance parts. It's a very nice weekend cruiser that runs strong. The a/c compressor is currently removed and all the lines capped off.
The engine is a 455 with the following items.
. 6X heads with a mild port job and Ferrea stainless valves
. Comp cams roller tip rockers
.Comp cams XE274H flat tappet
. Edelbrock Performer RPM intake
. Edelbrock 750 cfm carburetor
. Dyna-Max headers
The turbo 400 was re-built with heavy duty parts and a 2400 stall convertor. Radiator is an aluminum "Be-Cool" . As a backup to the stock clutch fan, I also installed an electric fan although it's not really needed with the aluminum radiator.
There are many other features on this car, too numerous to mention.

You don't have to be born in the 1960s or 1970s to be able to recognize the General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard and the Pontiac Trans Am from Smokey and the Bandit. These old school four-wheeled stars seem to transcend demographics thanks to the miles of film that show the orange 1969 Dodge Charger and the jet-black 1977 Pontiac Trans Am performing seemingly impossible stunts.
The folks at Hot Rod magazine are obviously hip to this fact, and they put together a fun video in tribute of the instantly recognizable duo. Hit the jump to watch on as Sam Young and James Smith replace Bo Duke and The Bandit for a bit of dirt-road shenanigans in a pair of otherwise well cared for classics. We're not so sure we'd call it the best chase scene ever, but it sure looks like a lot of fun.
More importantly, which of these two cars would you rather own? Have your say in our poll below.
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.
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
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.
