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.

General Motors today announced a truly massive recall covering some 8.4 million vehicles in North America. Most significantly, 8.2 million examples of the affected vehicles are being called back due to "unintended ignition key rotation," though GM spokesperson Alan Adler tells Autoblog that this issue is not like the infamous Chevy Cobalt ignition switch fiasco.
For the sake of perspective, translated to US population, this total recall figure would equal a car for each resident of New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, Alaska, North Dakota, the District of Columbia, Vermont and Wyoming. Combined. Here's how it all breaks down:
7,610,862 vehicles in North America being recalled for unintended ignition key rotation. 6,805,679 are in the United States.
General Motors has announced that it will be recalling 778,562 compact cars after six people were killed in accidents, partially due to the airbags' failure to deploy. An issue with the ignition switch is causing the airbag issues, as well as causing the engine and other components to shut off without warning. The recall covers the 2005 to 2007 model year Chevrolet Cobalt and 2007 Pontiac G5. (Note that the Cobalt pictured above is a 2009 model.)
According to a report from Automotive News, a number of factors can cause the ignition to switch out of the run position, including weights on the key ring, rough or bumpy roads or other "jarring" events. Any of these situations could lead to some vehicle components not functioning properly.
There have been five fatal front-impact crashes that took the lives of six people, although as a GM spokesman noted, all five of the crashes happened off road and at high speed. In each of these cases, though, the lack of airbags wasn't the only lethal factor - alcohol and failure to wear a seat belt also played a role. Outside of the fatal accidents, there have been 17 other crashes where airbags didn't deploy. It's unclear if any of these crashes were caused by the engine shutting off.
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."
