This beautiful WS6 Trans Am has been adult owned and kept in heated garages since new. The original owner was a woman in her 40's who due to medical reasons sold it to her friend, a 52 yr. old man, in 2004 when it had 5400 miles on it. The second owner had all of the improvements professionally done. I have receipts for everything except the roll bar, sub frame connectors and window tinting.Some of the improvements are:
Turbocharger, intercooler, Granatelli MAF, fuel management mod, boost and fuel pressure gauges, dyno tuned. All work performed by Turbo Technologies in Tacoma, WA. (Google them).
I have dyno sheet showing 430 HP and 510 TQ at the wheels.
Centerforce Dual Friction clutch, Mcleod master cyl., new slave cyl. and throw out bearing.
Flowmaster exhaust. Still retains catalytic converters and passed emissions test in WA.
Welded in subframe connectors and 4 pt. roll bar to stiffen chassis.
Torq Thrust wheels 17X9.5 frt and 17X11 rear.
Nitto NT01 tires with 2K miles. 275/40ZR/17 front 315/35ZR/17 rear.
I bought this car with 11,414 miles on it last year. I am 57 yrs. old. This car has not been raced or abused by some young kid. I have included a pic of some "curb rash" on the RF wheel and a small blem on the drivers door panel. The car does have 13K miles on it so it is not perfect but it is darn close.

The repairs needed for the faulty airbag inflators supplied by Takata continue to expand. Toyota initially announced a recall of 766,300 vehicles equipped with the bad part on June 11 as a followup to a campaign from 2013. Soon after, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened a preliminary evaluation into five automakers who also used the component in their models. Now, NHTSA has released the official announcement of the latest Toyota recall listing 844,277 affected cars, including the newly added 2003-2004 Pontiac Vibe.
Thu, 08 Aug 2013 08:45:00 EST
While NHTSA's document didn't include a model-by-model breakdown, General Motors spokesperson Alan Adler estimated to Autoblog that roughly 85,000 Vibes in the US would be covered under the latest recall. Like the rest of the affected models, the airbag inflator could rupture in a crash causing the bag not to work correctly, possibly spraying metal fragments at the occupant.
Toyota spokesperson Cindy Knight told Autoblog that the reason for the disparity between the earlier press release and NHTSA document was that Toyota was continuing to comb through VINs to create a list of affected vehicles. The original number was an estimate of that process at the time. Scroll down to the recall report from NHTSA.
Bob Lutz was one of the forces behind bringing the Holden Monaro to the United States, as the ill-fated Pontiac GTO in 2004. And while that car received critical acclaim, it was a sales disappointment. Now, Road & Track is reporting that our suspicions were correct - Pontiac was working on a two-door, G8-based coupe before it was shuttered.

In that R&T article, which is no longer available online, Lutz explained that the new GTO would solve many of the issues found in the original. Car Advice speculates that the new model would have look like a rebadged version of the Holden Coupe 60 Concept from 2008, a conclusion we also came to.
That car would have been a big departure from the 2004 to 2006 GTO. It has an extremely long hood and short rear deck, with an almost fastback roofline and a wide greenhouse with a tall beltline. The wheel arches were very pronounced, and the chin and rocker panel splitters gave it a race-ready look. Would it have been enough to make the GTO work in the US? We think it might of, but it looks like we'll never know.
The Pontiac GTO was perhaps the most iconic muscle car of the '60s and early '70s. With its beefy V8 and color palette screaming for attention, it summarized in a single vehicle everything that made the era so appealing to many young people. Pontiac tried to collect just a few drops of that aura again in the 2000s with a revived GTO, but with decidedly mixed results. The performance was still there with its big V8, but the looks never quite lived up to the powertrain. Now, Generation Gap wants to know which of these Goats is the one to own.
Things are skewed immediately because the 2006 GTO here is a real ringer. It comes from famous tuner Ken Lingenfelter's collection, and it's a one-off example partially fettled by GM Performance boasting a twin-turbocharged LS2 V8 with a claimed 750 horsepower and a wide-body kit. This Goat definitely isn't what you're going to find just browsing for one to buy in the newspaper. Still, dip the throttle just a little, and this GTO pulls like a freight train. It's enough to turn the two hosts into giggling schoolboys behind the wheel.
The '69 GTO Judge here is also out of Lingenfelter's collection, but this one is all stock with a 400-cubic-inch (6.6-liter) V8 and a Ram Air hood for a claimed 366 hp. It might not have the unbelievable power of the turbo '06, but it makes up for it with style to spare.
