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

It seems the Pontiac Trans Am steadfastly refuses to die. Ever since Chevrolet was granted a retrofied Camaro to compete with the Ford Mustang, Pontiac lovers have lamented the loss of this 1970s icon. And, looking at the Hurst Edition from Trans Am Depot, shown here at the 2012 SEMA Show, may explain what all the fuss is about.

It's not going to appeal to everyone's muscle-car tastes, but there's certainly room for a brash-and-bold black-and-gold Special Edition in many a Trans Am lover's garage. After all, if you want the keys to a custom pony car, you'll certainly get noticed in this one. If this scheme isn't your bag,, you can alternatively order your Hurst Edition in white and gold or silver and black. Oh, and don't forget a color-coordinated Screaming Chicken on the hood.
No matter which way you choose to go, your inner Burt Reynolds will appreciate the Eibach suspension kit, forged wheels with Pirelli PZero tires, functional shaker hood, fender air extractors, rear spoiler and, of course, a Hurst shifter inside. The interior is emblazoned with all manner of special touches, including a Hurst dash plate and T/A stitching on the Katzkin two-tone leather seats.
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."
Following a stop-delivery order for its new midsize trucks and a rash of recent recalls, General Motors is issuing three more campaigns covering 60,575 vehicles in North America with 57,182 of them in the US. As of October 1, the automaker has issued a total of 74 recalls (see the ridiculously long chart to the right) this year covering 26,495,070 units in the US.
The largest campaign covers 46,873 examples in the US of the 2008-2009 Pontiac G8 and 2011-2013 Chevrolet Caprice Police Patrol Vehicle imported from Australia. It's possible for the driver's knee to hit the key and make it move from the "Run" to "ACC" position while driving. GM says its Holden division is developing a fixed-blade key that's supposed to fix the problem by only allowing it to rotate toward the "On" position. There has been one crash caused by this fault but no injuries or fatalities.
The second recall is for 10,005 units of the 2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V and 2006-2007 Cadillac STS-V because "the fuel pump module electrical terminal may overheat." This can cause a flange to melt and allow the pump to leak fuel. GM specifies that the remedy for the CTS-V is replacing the fuel module and fuel tank jumper harness, but it doesn't specify how the STS-V is being repaired.
