Real Nice Trans Am on 2040-cars
Batesville, Mississippi, United States
I HAVE A 1979 PONTIAC TRANS AM. I HAVE HAD THE CAR FOR ABOUT 3 YEARS. I TRACKED THE ORGINAL OWNER DOWN AND HE BOUGHT IT IN LAS VEGAS AND LATER MOVED TO THE MEMPHIS TN AREA AND SOLD IT TO HIS BROTHER IN 1985. HIS BROTHER WAS GOING TO TRADE IT IN A ONE OF OUR LOCAL CAR LOTS IN 1990 AND MR. JOHNSON BOUGHT IT FOR HIMSELF. HE HAS DRIVEN IT AROUND TOWN ABOUT ONCE A WEEK FOR ALL THOSE YEARS AND I GOT IT. IT HAS 43000 ORGINAL MILES, FROM WHAT I CAN TELL AND KNOW, IT HAS NOT HAD A BOLT TURNED ON THE MOTOR OTHER THAN A STARTER AND ALTERNATOR ETC. IT IS RUST FREE AND RUNS GREAT WITH THE ORGINAL 403 MOTOR AND TRANS. I HAD THE SEATS REDONE BECAUSE OF A TEAR IN THE DRIVERS SEAT, OTHER THAN THAT I HAVE DRIVEN AND ENJOYED IT. I DONT HAVE TO SELL IT BUT MIGHT GET ME SOMETHING ELSE. A FEW PECKS IN THE PAINT BUT NOTHING SERIOUS, SHINES GOOD AND RUNS GREAT. THIS IS A NUMBERS MATCHING, AND WHEN I SAY RUST FREE "I MEAN RUST FREE" I DARE U TO FIND A RUST SPOT ON IT. IT IS A SOUTHERN CAR SOLID LIKE THE DAY IT WAS BUILT. GET IN IT AND DRIVE IT ANYWHERE IT THAT DEPENDABLE. SINCE PONTIAC WENT OUT OF BUSINESS THESE CARS ARE ONLY GOING TO RISE IN VALUE. FEEL FREE TO CALL ME IF U WANT--662-934-1957. I JUST BOUGHT A 71 OLDS CUTLASS THAT I WANT TO FIX UP SOME AND THOUGHT I WOULD SELL THE TA. I HAVE THE CAR FOR SALE LOCALLY AND RESERVE THE RIGHT TO END THE AUCTION IF I WANT TO. THANKS FOR LOOKING. EVERYTHING WORKS ON THE CAR LIKE IT SHOULD. I ADDED SOME PICTURES OF THE MOTOR AND TRUNK AREA THAT SOMEONE HAD A QUESTION ABOUT, I MOVED THE CARPET IN THE TRUNK TO SHOW HOW ORGINIAL IT IS WITH NO RUST THANKS

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 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.
The recalls keep rolling in from General Motors, evidently keen to avoid repeating the mistakes of the ignition-switch debacle and clean house. This time they're all coming at once, with five separate recalls announced together covering approximately 2.7 million vehicles.
The largest of the five actions involves over 2.4 million units of the previous-generation Chevrolet Malibu and Malibu Maxx, Pontiac G6 and Saturn Aura in order to fix brake light wiring harness, which have been found to be susceptible to corrosion. The recall is separate from the 56k Aura sedans which GM recently recalled over faulty shift cables, not to mention the previous massive recall of 1.3 million vehicles - some of them the same models - but appears to have resulted from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation that started with the G6 almost a year ago.
The second-largest campaign involves the 2014 Chevy Malibu, specifically those fitted with GM's 2.5-liter engine and stop/start system, approximately 140,000 examples of which has been found to have problematic brakes. The issue does not appear to be connected to the recall of 8k Malibu and Buick LaCrosse sedans (also involving brake woes) which we reported upon last week. Four crashes have been reported in such models, but GM admits it's not yet clear if the problem was a contributing factor in the accidents.
