1976 Trans Am 455 4-speed All Original on 2040-cars
Salisbury, North Carolina, United States
1976 PONTIAC TRANS AM 455 4-SPEED
THIS CAR NEEDS A COMPLETE RESTORATION. THE SHEET METAL HAS SURFACE RUST ESPECIALLY AROUND THE REAR GLASS. THE FRAME IS SOLID. THE CAR WAS SILVER FROM THE FACTORY AND WAS PAINTED RED SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE.
THE MOTOR LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE REBUILT IT AS IT HAS FRESH PAINT AND TURNS WELL BUT IT HAS NO RADIATOR OR BELTS SO I NEVER GOT TO THE POINT I FELT LIKE I WAS CLOSE TO TRYING TO START IT. THE MOTOR AND TRANS ARE 100% NUMBERS MATCHING AND THESE BIG INCH T/A CARS ARE GETTING HARD TO FIND. I HAVE A 71 FORMULA, A 72 FORMULA, A 74 TRANS AM, ANOTHER 76 TRANS AM AND I WILL NOT LIVE LONG ENOUGH TO GET TO THIS ONE. IT IS WORTH SELLING TO SOMEONE THAT APPRECIATES THE ORIGINALITY AND WILL RESTORE IT.
THE PHS SHOW THIS CAR HAS NO "DEALER HOLDBACK" AND HAS ACTUALLY BEEN INVOICED TO GENERAL MOTORS. MY WIFE AND I ARE IN THE CAR BUSINESS AND THIS MEANS THE CAR WAS A SPECIAL EVENT VEHICLE OF SOME SORT. THESE DAYS IT WOULD MEAN THE CAR HAS BEEN DISPLAYED AT A RACE OR HAS BEEN IN A MAGAZINE ARTICLE OR SOMETHING ALONG THOSE LINES. KIND OF COOL AND MAKES IT UNIQUE.
EVERYTHING IS THERE FOR RESTORATION. THE CAR IS LISTED ON CRAIGSLIST AND IT WON'T LAST VERY LONG AS THERE JUST SIMPLY ISN'T THAT MANY LEFT OUT THERE. FOR QUESTIONS THE BEST RESULT WILL BE TEXTING ME AT 704-TWO-3-TWO-9252. MY NAME IS BILL THANKS FOR LOOKING!

We'll be honest: the actual cars in Jerry Seinfeld's hit internet series, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, typically take a back seat to the celebrities in the front row. Seinfeld usually throws in a few lines about his classic wheels in the first minute or so, and then moves on to the important business of sprightly conversation and pithy one-liners. It's great.

This time around, with legendary motormouth Howard Stern riding shotgun, the 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge that might have been a co-star, gets forgotten about almost completely. Instead, Stern spends a tremendous amount of screen time extolling the virtues of his therapy sessions, attempts to dive into Seinfeld's prowess as a lover and generally makes a nuisance of himself. Pretty much to plan, then.
Scroll below to hear Howard accuse Jerry of acting like Jesus, just before declaring himself the greatest radio personality in the history of the business.
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.
Generation Gap is mining the Lingenfelter collection again this week to compare two very different interpretations of the Pontiac Firebird. An original 1968 example goes toe-to-toe with a 2010 Lingenfelter Trans Am to see whether the old man or the modern re-imagining takes the crown.
Being from the Lingenfelter collection, both cars are absolutely immaculate. The '68 packs a Pontiac 350-cubic-inch (5.7-liter) V8 with a claimed 320 horsepower and some classic, muscular style with a hood-mounted tach. Plus, it's painted in an understated shade of green that you don't usually see.
In the other corner is Lingenfelter's pumped-up take on the classic shape based on the modern Camaro, and this is just one of six concept versions ever made. It wears an eye-catching, vintage-inspired livery of blue with a white stripe package. Under its shaker hood is a 455-cubic-inch (7.5-liter) V8 with a reported 655 hp and 610 pound-feet of torque.
