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.

When an old car or truck offers its dying breath in your driveway and you just don't have the financial or mechanical wherewithal to resuscitate it yet again, you traditionally have to go to the trouble of calling a flatbed or a tow truck to come haul it away. That usually helps to put a few bucks in your wallet and helps recycle some of the vehicle's parts, but the transaction doesn't seem as final or perversely satisfying as the dispatch service that this New Way Cobra Magnum garbage truck offers.

Okay, okay, so this refuse hauler isn't actually designed for this sort of thing, but it's oddly comforting to know that a sanitation truck can compact a hapless Pontiac Grand Am into oblivion. Next time, we won't feel so guilty about slipping that rusty charcoal grille onto the curb next to the cans on garbage day. Watch the carnage by scrolling below.

The Detroit Free Press is reporting that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may expand a recall campaign for faulty brake lamps. The agency is currently looking into complaints that certain 2004-2011 Chevrolet Malibu models as well as some 2007-2009 Saturn Aura sedans may have brake lights that do not illuminate when the driver presses the pedal. Alternatively, the lamps may also illuminate without input from the driver. General Motors recalled 8,000 Pontiac G6 models from the 2005 model year for the same problem, and NHTSA is currently investigating whether to add 550,000 more G6 models built between 2005 and 2009 to the list for the same issue.
In addition, investigators are currently examining 97 complaints from Malibu and Aura owners with the same trouble. If NHTSA adds those models to the recall campaign, more than one million units could be covered. GM, meanwhile, says there have been no accidents or injuries as a result of the problem.
For the 1939 World's Fair, Pontiac built a Deluxe Six bodied in Plexiglass. Part of the Previews of Progress pavilion in which General Motors' Futurama showed off what was to come in the world of autos, the 'invisible' Pontiac is credited as the first transparent car in America. And there were no shortcuts taken with its body: the Plexiglass form was fabricated by the company that brought the material to market in 1933, Rohm & Haas.
The see-through sedan was sold at RM Auctions' St. John's auction in Michigan on July 30, fetching $308,000. Not bad appreciation for a domestic oddity that cost $25,000 to build when new. You can check out the high-res gallery of its innards, including copper and chrome metalwork and white moldings and wheels, and get the exhaustive details on it after the jump.
