2006 - Pontiac Gto on 2040-cars
Sun City, Arizona, United States
This is the one you've been waiting for!!!! Less than 40k miles Stock untouched motor and tranny King Springs (The ONLY progressive rate drop springs to use on these cars, imported from Australia, has a slightly stiffer than factory ride), 460 from JHP Extra set of BRAND NEW rear King Springs, 280 from JHP K&N CAI JBA Exhaust (Really nice growl as RPM's increase, nice burble when compression braking, absolutely no droning -extremely quiet- while cruising down the highway), 40-3110, 550 from JEGS GMM Ripshifter, installed (hands down, the best shifter ever made for these cars, imported from Australia), 40202, 477 from JHP Original shifter, not installed Royal Purple fluids (Rear differential and transmission) JHP Gauge Pod 34405R(factory wiring harness equipped), 679 from JHP Factory cover where the gauge pod is now Pedders HD strut bushings and bearings installed (Replacements for the notorious stock bushings that collapse) Pedders poly radius rod bushings installed (Stiffens up the caster when accelerating and braking, a must for these cars) Predator Diablo Tuner Infinity speakers (All door speakers replaced, original stock stereo and subwoofers remain, sounds MUCH better than stock) 18" factory wheels Factory SAP grill (Yes this an OEM part, good luck finding one cheap ANYWHERE!) Continental Extreme Contact DWS tires with LOTS of life left (Very quiet, sticky tires with a long wear life) Sales brochures from 2004, 2005, 2006 and paint samples Two sets of keys, each with the glove box key Original lugnuts with factory plastic covers LS2 T56 6 speed Cyclone Grey Metallic High book on this car is 15,900. There is well over 3000 just in extra parts that comes with it. Do the math. This is a good deal. Overall, I rate this car at a solid 9.5 out of 10. It's not perfect, but with the low miles it's the nicest example I've seen for quiet some time. I have taken excellent care of it and never raced or abused it. I would drive this car anywhere at a moments notice, it's just that reliable. I purchased this car from the second owner in Houston, Texas with 14,900 miles on it. If you want an unmolested example of the best of the modern GTO's then look no further. All of the upgrades are simply to make the car drive and ride better (like it should have from the factory) while still keeping it as close to original as possible. I'm not driving it, but I do have the car for sale locally and might put a few more miles on it for test drives and such.

The latest video from The Aficionauto is the perfect palate cleanser for Knight Rider fans after finding out that Justin Bieber is the voice of KITT in an upcoming film. Host Christopher Rutkowski says that the Knight Industries Two Thousand is one of the most requested vehicles to appear on the series and for good reason - Michael Knight's Pontiac Trans-Am is among the most famous cars to ever appear on television.
While the video isn't able to showcase one of the original KITTs from the series, it does get star David Hasselhoff to drive his personal replica and talk about the lasting legacy of the show. The highlight here might be seeing The Hoff back behind the wheel in the open desert basically recreating Knight Rider's opening sequence.
With all of its flashing lights and gizmos, you can probably make the argument that KITT is pretty cheesy, and the show itself was never exactly a pillar of high-quality drama on television. Despite that, the series still provides a ton of good-natured fun, and The Hoff's continued enthusiasm for it is pretty infectious. Check out The Aficionauto video to take another ride with Knight Rider.
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.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for a number of General Motors cars and crossovers bought or currently registered in the hot-climate states of Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas. As many as 40,859 units consisting of the 2007 Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent and Saturn Ion and the 2007-2009 Chevrolet Cobalt (shown) and its Pontiac G5 twin are being recalled for potential fuel leaks.
This recall is being issued due to potentially faulty fuel pump components that can crack and cause gasoline to leak from the return or supply ports and possibly cause a fire. NHTSA has not indicated how many fuel leaks or vehicle fires have been reported. As a fix, GM will replace the fuel pump modules on all affected vehicles free of charge. Since Pontiac and Saturn have been shuttered, owners will be able to go to another GM-brand dealership to have their vehicles repaired.
While the list of affected cars and crossovers varies by state and model year, if you own any of these models and live in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma or Texas, be sure to check the official notice below for more details.
