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 The original radio has been replaced by a high quality CD Player.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.

CNN chronicles young girl building Pontiac Fiero

Fri, 26 Oct 2012 12:45:00 EST

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.
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."

GM recalling 426,000 sedans over faulty transmission shift cable

Fri, 21 Sep 2012 09:58:00 EST

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.

This 1927 Oakland is a minimalist hot rod

Fri, 21 Feb 2014 16:57:00 EST

There are hundreds of American automakers that sprung up during the dawn of the automotive era, only to fold into obscurity or get gobbled up by what would eventually become the Big Four (yes, we're counting AMC here). Oakland is one such company, which was the forbearer for General Motors' Pontiac division. Sold until 1931, you simply don't see Oakland-badged cars anymore. Unless, that is, you know Brian Bent.
Bent drives a 1927 Oakland that still rides on wooden wheels. Its original wooden wheels, from the sound of it. That makes this anachronist and his Oakland the perfect subject for a Petrolicious video. Like many of the cars highlighted by Petrolicious, this old Oakland has had some work done to it, featuring a Pontiac flathead engine that's been pushed forward and a clutch pack built by Bent.
Take a look below for a closer look at this rare and fascinating Oakland.
