1991 Pontiac Firebird - Trans Am / Gta Model on 2040-cars
Prescott, Arizona, United States
|This vehicle was purchased by me in Los Angeles, California from a dealer for $5,000. I bought it solely because it was in good condition, and had 66K miles on it when I bought it. It now has about 103,500 +- on it. It is the GTA model, and I do have the original build code sheet that goes with it.
I have to many projects, and not enough time to finish / restore this one. It is rust free, having spent most of it's life in Valencia, California and then Arizona after about 2003.
I have replaced the A/C system (blows cold), the heater core (not a fun job), the tires have about 2K miles on them, etc, etc. New plugs, and all new ignition system parts. It was misfiring so I thought it was all those parts (about $800 worth), but it was because I didn't put premium fuel in it. I had not driven it in a while, so I did not need fuel. I put premium in and the miss went away.
In my opinion the vehicle is very straight. It did get 2 small hail stone nicks on the roof, and cracked the windshield. I replaced the front window as a result of the hail damage.
The rear spoiler is broken (part came off), and in my opinion the entire interior needs to be replaced. That will bring it back to where it should be.
The vehicle runs and drives well. It tracks straight, doesn't pull to either side when you apply the breaks, and starts right up. It has never overheated on me, and I would describe the overall condition as "good". Not perfect, as it is a 1991. If you purchase the car, and once you come and see it, if you don't like it..we will cancel the transaction with Ebay. I will assist with shipping and might be able to deliver if your not to far away. I have a clear title in hand, and it comes with a spare set of rims (Trans Am), and lot of small parts I have bought over the years.
I am open to offers, but I just turned down a $2K cash offer (a reseller). This is being sold for restoration, but can be driven daily. I have ALWAYS kept it registered and insured. That should tell you something. It is not a junker. If you have any questions, pls. feel free to contact me. Thanks for looking and have a great day. P.S. comes with a new car cover.

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.
The Poncho is dead. Long live the Poncho. Like certain other reoccurring personal maladies, the aftermarket community simply can't let the Trans Am go without another flare up. The guys at Trans Am Depot have worked up a quick commercial for their newest creation: The 2013 Trans Am Hurst Edition, and it watches pretty much like you'd expect it to. The footage is comprised of just about every TA male fantasy you can conceive of, from Daisy Dukes and white tank tops to tramp stamps, bikinis and ice cream cones. There simply aren't words for what you'll see below.
Of course, we like our T-Tops as much as the next guy. If you like what you see in the videos, you can pick up your very own TA by heading over to the Trans Am Depot site. The guys even have Chevrolet Camaro-based versions of the Pontiac GTO if the '77 TA treatment is too much for your tastes. Enjoy, but don't say we didn't warn you.
