This car is road ready. Drive it home. It has been repainted. The paint looks good but is not perfect. It has some imperfections and chips here and there but overall looks good. I would rate in a 8.5 on a 1-10 scale. The weatherstrip and window fuzies are new. The rear bumper is new. The front bumper is slightly bent so it doesn't line up with the hood very good. The tires are NEW Coker Redlines with less than 50 miles on them. The 2 rear rocker moldings are missing but are available reproduction. One of the rear taillight lenses and the 2 front turn signal lenses are broken but still work. The motor runs strong. The trans shifts smoothly. The brakes work good. All the lights, turn signals, horn, wipers ect work. The body is very straight. All the glass is good. The steering is tight and the car drives nice. The interior is original and unrestored. It needs to be redone. It works but the seat covers, carpet and headliner need replaced. The door panels look very good. This is sold with no warranty expressed or implied. Buyer will be responsible for shipping. Delivery by me is an option. I have a clear Nevada title to this in my name. Payment must be made within 3 days of auction close or i will assume you were not a serious bidder and relist it. Please have the money before bidding! This is a very rare car and one of the few remaining originals. Its not perfect but looks good. I am uploading 24 pictures and a youtube video of the car. Please e-mail or call me with questions at 702-624-3266. My name is Mike. I am on Pacific time so please don't call in the middle of the night. Happy Bidding!!!

This Auto Aerobics car art ties our brains in knots like pretzels

Sat, 14 Dec 2013 14:01:00 EST

We like cars, and we like art. Naturally, Chris Labrooy's Auto Aerobics series - computer-generated images of some seriously contorted 1968 Pontiac Bonnevilles floating in mid-air - instantly clicked with us. If the Pontiacs weren't floating or hollow, we could be fooled into believing the image is real. But where's the fun in that?
Check out the gallery we included of Labrooy's Bonneville art, and feel free too head over to his website for some Formula One humor.

GM recalling another 2.7 million vehicles in five separate campaigns

Thu, 15 May 2014 09:57:00 EST

The recalls keep rolling in from General Motors, evidently keen to avoid repeating the mistakes of the ignition-switch debacle and clean house. This time they're all coming at once, with five separate recalls announced together covering approximately 2.7 million vehicles.
The largest of the five actions involves over 2.4 million units of the previous-generation Chevrolet Malibu and Malibu Maxx, Pontiac G6 and Saturn Aura in order to fix brake light wiring harness, which have been found to be susceptible to corrosion. The recall is separate from the 56k Aura sedans which GM recently recalled over faulty shift cables, not to mention the previous massive recall of 1.3 million vehicles - some of them the same models - but appears to have resulted from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation that started with the G6 almost a year ago.
The second-largest campaign involves the 2014 Chevy Malibu, specifically those fitted with GM's 2.5-liter engine and stop/start system, approximately 140,000 examples of which has been found to have problematic brakes. The issue does not appear to be connected to the recall of 8k Malibu and Buick LaCrosse sedans (also involving brake woes) which we reported upon last week. Four crashes have been reported in such models, but GM admits it's not yet clear if the problem was a contributing factor in the accidents.

How to turn a Pontiac Fiero into a trackday car

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 16:58:00 EST

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.
