1978 TRANS AM with less than 77000 miles

This car appears to have no rust issues including floors, trunk, frame, and body panels. The paint is faded but good, however it appears both doors have been repainted so they do not match exactly. I donít know why this was done but it is noticeable on a bright day from a distance. This makes the car still very attention getting for the average eye but to be show quality it would have to be repainted. The hood emblem is faded but still al there. The nice thing is one can still drive this car routinely and look great and not have to worry about sun fading or other minor issues as compared to a show quality paint job.

The car runs and drives excellent. The only issues with the gauges are the clock no longer works and the gas gauge sticks. The rims look great and the tires are almost new. The interior is very nice and original. The headliner is hanging loose and could be glued or replaced. The passenger inside door handle needs to be reconnected to the door. The fan on the AC/Heater only works when it wants to, probably just the switch. The original radio has been replaced by a high quality CD Player. The dash has no cracks and the seats and rugs are in great condition. The T-Tops remove and reinstall easy and do not leak. The electric windows work good. Overall this a very nice car that would be great to have fun in and still be easy to make into top show quality.

Rumormill: DeLorean Motor Company considering rescuing Pontiac Solstice?

Wed, 07 Oct 2009 10:59:00 EST

DeLorean Motor Company Pontiac Solstice renderings - Click above for high-res image gallery
General Motors has made a science out of sharing platforms. So when the company's Kappa platform was introduced for a new rear-drive roadster to be distributed across three different motor divisions, you'd have figured the program was pretty safe, right? Unfortunately for the workers at the Wilmington Assembly Plant which manufactured the Kappa roadsters, those three divisions were Pontiac, Saturn and Opel - three units which the General has either sold or shut down. Which is a shame, because a perfectly good rear-drive roadster platform is a heck of a thing to waste.
In one of the strangest rumors we've heard recently, however, our compatriots over at Jalopnik report that the DeLorean Motor Company (yes, that DeLorean Motor Company) is considering buying the plant and the platform from GM and putting it back into production as a new DMC.

GM doing fine at retaining Pontiac owners

Fri, 28 Oct 2011 09:29:00 EST

This isn't the first time we've reported positive news about General Motors retaining former Pontiac owners. Get a few more stories like this latest report from Edmund's Auto Observer, and it will mark an ongoing positive trend for GM. Edmunds.com crunched the numbers to see how well the General is hanging on to customers after shutting out the lights at Pontiac, and it found that nearly 40 percent of Pontiac owners stayed with a vehicle from a General Motors brand.
The numbers are a little lower than an earlier R.L. Polk & Company study, but Edmunds says General Motors is keeping more former Pontiac buyers than it has since 2007. Most are turning to vehicles from Chevrolet, especially during January and February of 2011, when GM incentivized Pontiac owners to stay under the umbrella. Those moves seem to have worked, and 28.1 percent of Pontiac owners trading up made the jump into a Bowtie.
Buyers that have gone elsewhere have largely stayed loyal to Domestic automakers, with Ford picking up the most conquests from Pontiac, with 9.4 percent switching. Toyota and Honda picked up 7.4 percent of the pool of former Pontiac drivers. The numbers are defying any predictions that Pontiac buyers would completely exit the General Motors fold, and have climbed up closer to parity with the retention figures of other GM brands from a 2009 low of only 16 percent retention.
