Up for sale is my 1976 Pontiac Trans Am 455. PHS documented. This Trans Am has a Firethorn red exterior with a Firethorn red interior. Factory options include 455 engine, hood decal, custom trim group, front console, and radio stereo (long gone) The drivetrain is complete matching numbers ie engine, tranny, and rear end. Original 455 engine has been tastefully modified internally including crower cam, rhoades lifters, ram air exhaust manifolds, MSD ignition, chromoly pushrods, double rolling timing chain. high volume oil pump etc. Factory cast iron heads with aluminum intake. This was was not an amatuer engine build engine runs and sounds nice. Trans Am purists know that 1976 was the last year of round headlights, last year for the 455 manual four speed option, and the only year Firethorn red was offered for the Trans Am model. This car was rustproofed and undercoated when sold. As a result, the tail pan, floor pans, and frame rails are rust free. The body is very straight with original fit and finish you would expect from an original car. The base clear paint shows well despite it being over twenty years old ( rear wheel flares have minor paints chips here and there tough not bad). This car is part of my personal collection and I have decided to sell it to help fund the purchase of a vacation home. This Trans Am was owned by a deceased brother of mine and has great sentimental value to me. My brother purchased this car locally in 2004 from a gentleman who owned it for nearly 27 years. A name and phone number will be provided to the new owner upon sale. With this being said, please do not waste my time with ridiculous offers, emails, or phone calls. I am very aware of the Collector Car market specifically the value of 70s Trans Ams. My feedback speaks for itself. I have personally owned approximately 50 second generation Trans Ams and consider myself both truthful as well as knowledgeable when it comes to these cars. This car IS NOT a restored car, it has patina and value that most restored Trans Ams on the market do not have. If you have been in the market for one of these cars call me for a detailed owner history as well as description. Collector cars such as mine continue to be shipped out of this country everyday, don't let this car leave the states Thank You John Casey 978-994-6884.

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.

Autoline Detroit recently played host to Bob Lutz, and, as is always the case, the former General Motors vice chairman dished out some great commentary. Lutz was promoting his new book Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business, and talk quickly turned to his role as it related to product development and high-level decision making at GM. While on the topic of brand management, Lutz revealed a few rather interesting tidbits about his former employer:
All Chevrolet vehicles were required to have five-spoke aluminum wheels and a chrome band up front, as part of the Bowtie brand's overall image.
Well, this is not good for General Motors. Following a report last week that GM was recalling 778,000 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 compacts over concerns that the ignition could switch out of the "run" position without warning, USA Today reports that the Detroit-based behemoth knew about the issue, which affected 2005 to 2007 Cobalts (the Cobalt shown above and in the gallery is from 2010) and 2007 Pontiac G5s, all the way back in 2004.
The information comes from a deposition in a civil lawsuit against GM, obtained by USA Today, which claims that a GM engineer experienced the issue while the then-new model was undergoing testing. The issue was "solved" when a technical service bulletin was issued in 2005, informing dealers to install a snap-on key cover on the cars of customers who complained about the issue. According to the Cobalt's program engineering manager, Gary Altman, the cover was an "improvement, it was not a fix to the issue."
The case where the depositions were made was from 2010, and involved Brooke Melton, a 29-year-old pediatric nurse in Georgia who was killed on her birthday. At the time, police claimed she was going too fast on a wet, rural road, although it later came out through the black box that her car's ignition had come out of the "run" position at least three seconds before the accident (the max amount of time a black box records before a wreck), disabling her airbags, power steering and anti-lock brakes. According to USA Today, police said Melton was "traveling too fast for the roadway conditions," although it's impossible to know if she'd have been in the wreck, which injured the occupants of another vehicle, had her 2005 Chevy not shut off. GM settled the Melton family's case, although the details remain confidential.
