1973 Pontiac Gto Base Hardtop 2-door 6.6l on 2040-cars
Gibbon, Nebraska, United States
Less then 4900 of the 73 GTOs were built, it is my understanding only about 500 are registered, they are rare. This was a frame off rebuild starting in 2004 and was taken to its first car show in fall of 2005, the rebuild was not done by proffessionals. The engine is a 69 pontiac 400, with 70 pontiac ram air III heads, intake, and exhaust headers, it has the stock 335 hp cam in it. Valves, springs, roller tip rockers, pistons, oil pump, fuel pump, water pump, timing chain and gears, and rebalanced rods were all new and engine was rebuilt by local machine shop, it has a guadra jet 4 barrel with HEI ignition. The transmission is out of a 69 GTO and was rebuilt by a local transmission shop, it has a full size car torque converter so it shifts very smoothly, no shift kit was installed, rear end is a 323 positrac. Suspension from front to back was new, including body mounts, brakes were new from front to back, front brakes are disc, rear are drum. It has dual exhausts and done by a local muffler shop, straight pipes were used for exhaust pipes and don't look real good, tail pipe extensions are exact to car, it does sound pretty awesome without being loud.
It has bucket seats with console, tilt steering, am-fm stereo radio, cruise control, air conditioning (not working), ralley gauges with tach and clock. Interior is very nice except for a couple cracks in dash. All door, window, seals were new so is quite when driving.
Exterior painted in 2005, 1974 pontiac goldenrod yellow, base paint with clear coat, black vinyl top looks real good except for a couple small cracks by back window. This GTO draws a lot of attention at car shows, and has received numerous plaques and trophies in its class, one peoples choice award. There are far to many NOS parts that went into the rebuild to list, but I'm sure many don't exist today. The car has been driven about 3000 miles since the rebuild and still showes very well.

If you're an automotive engineer being tormented by an immortal being made of fire, then wouldn't you think it best to have a custom coupe called the FireBreather for your getaway car? That's the FireBreather in the image above, adorned by the red wings that once fronted the Pontiac Firebird, running away from a black cloud of evil in a trailer for the movie Jinn.

The Jinn is eternal evil, always waiting for the chance to make things float across rooms before going on homicidal urban rampages. The FireBreather is a Gen-V Chevrolet Camaro - from the V6 to the ZL1 - that's been through Classic Design Concepts' extensive list of exterior and interior modifications, including entirely new front and rear fascias and side skirts, sway bars and springs, Pirelli P Zeroes and an available Edelbrock supercharger.
The movie - FireBreathing chase scenes and all - was shot in Monroe, Michigan. You can watch the trailer below, but since the FireBreather only get a couple of seconds on screen, you can find out more about it on Street Legal TV and its official site.
For the 1939 World's Fair, Pontiac built a Deluxe Six bodied in Plexiglass. Part of the Previews of Progress pavilion in which General Motors' Futurama showed off what was to come in the world of autos, the 'invisible' Pontiac is credited as the first transparent car in America. And there were no shortcuts taken with its body: the Plexiglass form was fabricated by the company that brought the material to market in 1933, Rohm & Haas.

The see-through sedan was sold at RM Auctions' St. John's auction in Michigan on July 30, fetching $308,000. Not bad appreciation for a domestic oddity that cost $25,000 to build when new. You can check out the high-res gallery of its innards, including copper and chrome metalwork and white moldings and wheels, and get the exhaustive details on it after the jump.
As much as our digital lives have cut down on our trips to the post office, there are still times that sending "snail mail" is necessary. With us car lovers in mind and philately in their hearts, the good folks at the United States Postal Service will introduce a new stamp design called "Muscle Cars" starting on February 22.
Designed by artist Tom Fritz, the new collection of stamps consist of five classic muscle cars: 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, 1967 Shelby GT-500, 1966 Pontiac GTO and 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda. In addition to just the stamps, the USPS is also commemorating the new series with plenty of collectable memorabilia. Previous car-related stamps include 50s Sporty Cars from 2005 and 50s Fins and Chrome from 2008.
