1978 Pontiac Trans Am on 2040-cars
Levant, Maine, United States
Drive Type: RWD AUTOMATIC 4L65E
Model: Trans Am
Trim: TRANS AM
2005 LS2 400 HP, 400 Ft.lb Torque engine. Engine came from a salvage car with mileage in the high 30's. 4l65e automatic transmission. 3.73 gear posi rear end. 568 miles on car since rebuild. Professionally restored but not a Barrett Jackson car. It's an excellent driver and is in excellent shape. It was restored over the past 3 years. The seats were custom upholstered in ultra-leather with the firebird logo embroidered into the headrest area. The car was completely disassembled. New springs, bushings, body mount bushings, rotors, pads, lines too much to list but most of what could be replaced as new has been. The wheels are original but sandblasted and powdercoated. The car was in two car shows this summer with about 150 cars in each show and placed 1st in one and third in the other. I only mention that to show that it's a nice car. Everyone's opinion of nice is different. Feel free to have someone inspect before the sale. The car will be sold as is with no warranty and no returns as it will most likely have to be shipped. Because the car is over 15 years old there is no title as Maine does not require it in a car over 15 years old. I have more than the buy it now price in just parts and the original car purchase.

According to two separate reports in The Detroit News, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is launching investigations into 550,000 Pontiac G6 (pictured above) and 320,000 Honda Odyssey (pictured right) models. The G6 models are all from the 2005 to 2007 model years, while the Odyssey minivans are from the 2003 and 2004 model years. The two NHTSA probes are not related.
In the case of the G6, this is an upgrade to an original investigation that started in February after NHTSA received "hundreds of reports" that the brake lights on these cars may malfunction. According to The Detroit News, the lights may come on when the brake pedal is not depressed, and likewise, the brake lights may not illuminate when the pedal has been pushed. General Motors was able to provide NHTSA with a significant number of warranty claims, including 1,100 reports that could potentially relate to this problem, one of which indicates a vehicle crash.
For Honda, the NHTSA probe concerns airbags that may deploy unexpectedly. The government agency received six complaints from 2003-04 Odyssey owners saying that the front airbags suddenly went off without a crash. The Detroit News reports that three of the six owners sustained injuries from these incidents. Additionally, NHTSA has received 41 complaints from owners saying the vehicle's airbag warning light had illuminated.
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.
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.
