1965 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX SPORT COUPE. the floor pans and braces on this car are as solid as the day they were made! the car runs well and has new valve cover gaskets fitted and a tune up not too long ago. the transmission is rebuilt and a shift kit was put in it. the drive shaft was balanced cleaned and then painted. the factory air is all there but the drive belt is disconnected, the system will no doubt need to be checked and gone through.
the fender skirts are solid as a rock. the quarter panels are VERY straight and VERY solid, check the pix with the fender skirts off. the inner and outer rockers are solid as a rock also and the doors and trunk open and close perfectly, the hood hinge on the drivers side needs a little tweeking but it works ok. all the glass is excellent and all the windows go up and down fine, a little stiff in places but fine. the headliner is still in the car but starting to come apart. its original and i`m sure it could be saved. the dome light works when you open the doors. the area around the back glass is VERY solid. you can see some pitting in the two close up pictures but there is NO rust out. the inside lip of the trunk lid has some rust out but not much. the hood lip is very good though the hood nose has had a little bump in the distant past. the car has been stored inside since 1981! the paint is faded as you can see, the front bumper needs some straightening.
what needs attention: the car needs an exhaust, a new battery, a/c service/repair, brake rebuild, bottoms of front fenders repaired along with a little repair in the area where the fender skirt clips in. the trunk floor has been treated with an anti rust paint and for the most part the trunk floor is decent apart from some localized rust through, but its not much! there is a split seam on the drivers seat, see close up picture. the car has the REAR SPEAKER SELECTOR.
the interior is ALL original, thats right the carpets, seats, door panels, headliner and everything else is ALL ORIGINAL. the carpets need to be replaced along with the carpet on the bottoms of both doors. the dash pad has had it along with the parcel shelf cover. it needs a new ignition switch and trunk lock. the two rear caps are missing the spinners, see pix. the original jack and spare are with the car.
this is a really solid car and an excellent car to restore. clear title in hand and FULL PAYMENT IN THREE DAYS FROM AUCTIONS END. the ONLY methods of payment i will accept are CASH IN PERSON AT PICK UP, OR BANK WIRE TRANSFER.
ANY QUESTIONS CALL 864 616 6860 BEFORE 10 PM EASTERN TIME. this GP is a REALLY good car that has the makings of a GREAT car, we just hope that someone doe`s it real justice. thanks and good luck to y`all.

DeLorean Motor Company Pontiac Solstice renderings - Click above for high-res image gallery

General Motors has made a science out of sharing platforms. So when the company's Kappa platform was introduced for a new rear-drive roadster to be distributed across three different motor divisions, you'd have figured the program was pretty safe, right? Unfortunately for the workers at the Wilmington Assembly Plant which manufactured the Kappa roadsters, those three divisions were Pontiac, Saturn and Opel - three units which the General has either sold or shut down. Which is a shame, because a perfectly good rear-drive roadster platform is a heck of a thing to waste.
In one of the strangest rumors we've heard recently, however, our compatriots over at Jalopnik report that the DeLorean Motor Company (yes, that DeLorean Motor Company) is considering buying the plant and the platform from GM and putting it back into production as a new DMC.
Imagine hitting the track in a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive sports coupe that's affordable and has pretty good parts availability. It might sound like a pipe dream, but it's actually quite possible, if you're willing to think a little outside the box. The Pontiac Fiero is out there just waiting for a little work to turn it into a competent racing machine.

Think about it for a second. Of course, we would all like to be snaking through the curves in something exotic, but what happens when you crash or something breaks? The bills are going to mount up quickly. However, if you ball up a Fiero at the track, as long as you're not hurt, then it's not a huge tragedy.
That's basically the story of Steven Snyder in a new video from Drive starring Matt Farah. Snyder wanted to go to the track cheaply and ended up with an awesome little Fiero with a huge wing and a claimed 220 horsepower at the wheels thanks to a V6 from a Chevrolet Lumina. Check out the video to see how this pint-size Pontiac performs.
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."
