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.

At fourteen years of age, Kathryn DiMaria has already done what many self-proclaimed gearheads won't even attempt in their lifetimes. The Dearborn, Michigan teen is rebuilding a car from the ground up.
Fri, 21 Sep 2012 09:58:00 EST
The intrepid youngster asked her parents when she was just twelve to start a Pontiac Fiero project, even offering to pony up all the funds herself. Father, Jerry DiMaria only expected the project to last a few months, but two years later, Kathryn is still at it. In this CNN video, the two are at Maker Faire (a DIY festival) rebuilding a 3.4-liter V6 engine out of a Chevrolet Camaro to replace the 2.8-liter mill found in the Fiero.
The whole family hast pitched in, with Kathryn's mother teaching her how to sew in order to complete the interior, father Jerry providing much of the technical know-how, and even her sister is chronicling Kathryn's progress through photos. Jerry even started a thread in a Fiero forum which has been live for two years and is now 22 pages long. Of the project, one forum member wrote, "welcome to the madness."
General Motors is recalling some 426,240 sedans that may have a faulty transmission shift cable, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report this morning. The recall concerns a fault within four-speed automatic transmissions equipped on 2007-2010 Saturn Aura models, and 2008-2010 Chevrolet Malibu and Pontiac G6 models.

The report specifies that tabs on the transmission shift cable may fracture and separate. Such a fault could cause a discrepancy between the actual position of the transmission and the apparent position of the shift lever.
GM is currently working to notify owners of the vehicles in question, and dealers will check and replace shift cables free of charge. Scroll down to read the complete NHTSA report.
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.
