1975 Pontiac Trans Am on 2040-cars
Fairfax Station, Virginia, United States
1975 Pontiac Trans Am originally a 400/ 4 speed car, now it sports a 505 cubic inch supercharged Pontiac roller motor. The block was purchased directly from ALLPONTIAC.COM. A Paxton NOVI 2000 supercharger is currently making 12.7 pounds of boost which equates into 650 rear wheel horsepower and over 700 foot pounds of torque. The brackets for the supercharger are all CNC custom made. A March serpentine system runs power steering, alternator, water pump and A/C!! The transmission is a Tremec TKO 600 five speed. A custom made Strange Engineering Ford nine inch rear completes the drive train with 3.89 gears. A Hotchkiss Total Vehicle System, Hotchkiss sub frame connectors and Competition Engineering Slider Links makes up the suspension. The car sits 2 inches lower than stock. The front brakes are slotted rotors and the rears are 11 inch drums. A hydroboost system ensures stopping power. Aeromotive 3000 electric fuel pump with sump, all plumbed in stainless steel braided line. The interior is very stock looking and in original condition. A Quick Fuel air fuel computer is present to read real time percentages. Upon purchase, this car was sent to Farrish Pontiac where it was stripped and painted base/clear in the cars original color, Argent Silver. No rust at the time the car was painted nor does it have any now. Floors and trunk are all original and solid. All new weather stripping, new Trans Am decals which were supplied by Phoenix Graffix. Car is very original looking but is a race car underneath. The wheels are original honeycombs which have been restored with the original wheel paint. I had it custom made by 3M. The rear wheels are 15x9, they were sent to Weld Craft Wheels where they were widened 2 inches. Tires are sticky M&H Racemasters. This build is about 1500 miles old and has never seen the track. It has been covered in the garage and driven only to cars and coffee. This build was completed by George Reggio at Maryland Performance Center.

The largest among them covers 215,243 units of the Saturn Vue from 2002-2004 model years worldwide, 202,115 in the US. It's possible for the for the key to be removed even when the ignition isn't in the OFF position. The company knows of two crashes and one injury caused by this problem. Dealers are checking the parts and replacing the ignition cylinder and key set, if necessary.
Next is 72,826 models worldwide (48,059 vehicles in the US) of the 2013 Cadillac ATS four-door sedan, 2013 Buick Encore and 2013 Chevy Trax in Canada. It's possible that the for lap belt pretensioner to retract but not to lock, which could increase occupant movement during a crash. Both front, outboard lap belt pretensioners are being replaced, and a stop-sale is in effect on unsold models until the problem is repaired. There are no known crashes or injuries, though.
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.

Molly Vielweber's Pontiac G6 appears unremarkable at first glance. It wears forest green paint, rolls on five-spoke aluminum wheels, and it has a sizeable scrape in the driver's side door, the scar of a decade's worth of hard use. You wouldn't notice it parked at a big box store or cruising on the highway. Pontiac made hundreds of thousands of G6s in the 2000s, and a lot are still on the road. It's unremarkable in every way except for the front license plate, which reads, "Oprah 6."
