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

Well, this is not good for General Motors. Following a report last week that GM was recalling 778,000 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 compacts over concerns that the ignition could switch out of the "run" position without warning, USA Today reports that the Detroit-based behemoth knew about the issue, which affected 2005 to 2007 Cobalts (the Cobalt shown above and in the gallery is from 2010) and 2007 Pontiac G5s, all the way back in 2004.

The information comes from a deposition in a civil lawsuit against GM, obtained by USA Today, which claims that a GM engineer experienced the issue while the then-new model was undergoing testing. The issue was "solved" when a technical service bulletin was issued in 2005, informing dealers to install a snap-on key cover on the cars of customers who complained about the issue. According to the Cobalt's program engineering manager, Gary Altman, the cover was an "improvement, it was not a fix to the issue."
The case where the depositions were made was from 2010, and involved Brooke Melton, a 29-year-old pediatric nurse in Georgia who was killed on her birthday. At the time, police claimed she was going too fast on a wet, rural road, although it later came out through the black box that her car's ignition had come out of the "run" position at least three seconds before the accident (the max amount of time a black box records before a wreck), disabling her airbags, power steering and anti-lock brakes. According to USA Today, police said Melton was "traveling too fast for the roadway conditions," although it's impossible to know if she'd have been in the wreck, which injured the occupants of another vehicle, had her 2005 Chevy not shut off. GM settled the Melton family's case, although the details remain confidential.
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.

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.
