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.

Generation Gap is mining the Lingenfelter collection again this week to compare two very different interpretations of the Pontiac Firebird. An original 1968 example goes toe-to-toe with a 2010 Lingenfelter Trans Am to see whether the old man or the modern re-imagining takes the crown.

Being from the Lingenfelter collection, both cars are absolutely immaculate. The '68 packs a Pontiac 350-cubic-inch (5.7-liter) V8 with a claimed 320 horsepower and some classic, muscular style with a hood-mounted tach. Plus, it's painted in an understated shade of green that you don't usually see.
In the other corner is Lingenfelter's pumped-up take on the classic shape based on the modern Camaro, and this is just one of six concept versions ever made. It wears an eye-catching, vintage-inspired livery of blue with a white stripe package. Under its shaker hood is a 455-cubic-inch (7.5-liter) V8 with a reported 655 hp and 610 pound-feet of torque.
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.
The Pontiac GTO was perhaps the most iconic muscle car of the '60s and early '70s. With its beefy V8 and color palette screaming for attention, it summarized in a single vehicle everything that made the era so appealing to many young people. Pontiac tried to collect just a few drops of that aura again in the 2000s with a revived GTO, but with decidedly mixed results. The performance was still there with its big V8, but the looks never quite lived up to the powertrain. Now, Generation Gap wants to know which of these Goats is the one to own.
Things are skewed immediately because the 2006 GTO here is a real ringer. It comes from famous tuner Ken Lingenfelter's collection, and it's a one-off example partially fettled by GM Performance boasting a twin-turbocharged LS2 V8 with a claimed 750 horsepower and a wide-body kit. This Goat definitely isn't what you're going to find just browsing for one to buy in the newspaper. Still, dip the throttle just a little, and this GTO pulls like a freight train. It's enough to turn the two hosts into giggling schoolboys behind the wheel.
The '69 GTO Judge here is also out of Lingenfelter's collection, but this one is all stock with a 400-cubic-inch (6.6-liter) V8 and a Ram Air hood for a claimed 366 hp. It might not have the unbelievable power of the turbo '06, but it makes up for it with style to spare.
