1967 Pontiac Grand Prix on 2040-cars
Cleveland, Mississippi, United States
This is a very straight car with NO rust whatsoever. The car has the original gold paint with a new white vinyl top. The body is straight except for some work done on the rear passenger quarter panel. This car came from a man who got it from his 80 year old father whom had taken really good care of the car through the years. The original 400 engine has been rebuilt throughout and was nicely done as you can see in the pictures, and the transmission shifts perfectly. The Carter carburator was sent off and rebuilt but has a bit of a surge when cruising. It has a new radiator, new heater core, belts and hoses, engine components, new wheel cylinders, new exhaust, new brakes, new shocks and springs (front and rear), and a very tight front end. The FM radio has been sent off and cleaned and tuned by a professional and the TILT column has been reworked by a professional, also. The hidden headlights work perfectly! The passenger side door panel had somewhat of a ripple that took away from the interior of the car so I replaced the front door panels (still have the old ones). I also replaced the carpet because it was faded a bit and dynomat insulation was installed in the floor. The dash and steering wheel have no cracks which tells me that the car has been kept inside as I was told. The fender skirts are perfect with no rust and they fit tightly. Windows go up and down like a new car. It's very obvious that this car has been taken very good care of and probably pampered. I have much, much more in the car than my reserve. Please feel free to call me with questions......662-719-3307.

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.
General Motors has confirmed to Autoblog that the Pontiac Vibe is included in Toyota's just-announced recall action. The Vibe and the Toyota Matrix share a large number of parts, including the affected cable to the airbag.

"About 40,500 Pontiac Vibes from the 2009-2010 model years are included in the Toyota recall. Toyota designed and engineered the Vibe for Pontiac. GM will service customers with these vehicles when Toyota makes the parts available," said GM recall spokesperson Alan Adler to Autoblog in an email.
The recall covers 1.3 million Toyota units in the US, including 2009-2010 Corolla, Matrix and Tacoma, the 2008-2010 Highlander, the 2006-2008 Rav4 and 2006-2010 Yaris, plus the addition of the 2009-2010 Vibe. The models all have their airbag module attached via a spiral electrical cable. The connections on this cable can be damaged when turning the steering wheel. Once broken, the airbag deactivates and the airbag warning light comes on. Toyota has an improved part, but it's still making preparations to begin repairs. It will begin notifying owners soon.
The repairs needed for the faulty airbag inflators supplied by Takata continue to expand. Toyota initially announced a recall of 766,300 vehicles equipped with the bad part on June 11 as a followup to a campaign from 2013. Soon after, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened a preliminary evaluation into five automakers who also used the component in their models. Now, NHTSA has released the official announcement of the latest Toyota recall listing 844,277 affected cars, including the newly added 2003-2004 Pontiac Vibe.
While NHTSA's document didn't include a model-by-model breakdown, General Motors spokesperson Alan Adler estimated to Autoblog that roughly 85,000 Vibes in the US would be covered under the latest recall. Like the rest of the affected models, the airbag inflator could rupture in a crash causing the bag not to work correctly, possibly spraying metal fragments at the occupant.
Toyota spokesperson Cindy Knight told Autoblog that the reason for the disparity between the earlier press release and NHTSA document was that Toyota was continuing to comb through VINs to create a list of affected vehicles. The original number was an estimate of that process at the time. Scroll down to the recall report from NHTSA.
