Your bidding on a very rare sport coupe 61 bonneville.  This car needs a complete restoration and I am not implying any type of warranty.  So what I have is a 2 owner car that is very fixable.  The car does have some rust but is a very good start.  The car had a bad paint job in 1980 and now the car is showing it.  All of the 61's have the same rust issues such as rockers, trunk floor, pillar and such.  As you will see not real bad but will need attention.  The car sports, remote mirror, power bench, power windows, AC, day and night mirror, and such. The car has been up dated with a 69 firebird HO 400 motor that has only about 500 miles on it and turbo 400 trans.  The wheels are 17 in with new eagle tires.  The car does run and drive but has been off the road for 25 years so I would not trust it to just to take off with it.  I will try to answer all of your questions the best I can.  I have not owned the car for a long time and have not had it on the road.  This car could be great to drive and restore at the same time.  If you would like the original wheels and spinner hub caps I will discount the car 500.00 and put the originals back on and keep the 17's.


I was going to make it a drag car but the car is to nice to cut up.  The floors are super solid, fenders and such.

Looking back at Oprah's free-car giveaway 10 years later

Fri, 12 Sep 2014



Oprah kicked off her 19th season in dramatic fashion by giving all 276 members of the studio audience a free car.
Molly Vielweber's Pontiac G6 appears unremarkable at first glance. It wears forest green paint, rolls on five-spoke aluminum wheels, and it has a sizeable scrape in the driver's side door, the scar of a decade's worth of hard use. You wouldn't notice it parked at a big box store or cruising on the highway. Pontiac made hundreds of thousands of G6s in the 2000s, and a lot are still on the road. It's unremarkable in every way except for the front license plate, which reads, "Oprah 6."

Lutz dishes dirt on GM in latest Autoline Detroit

Bob Lutz sits down for Autoline Detroit - Click above to watch video after the jump
Autoline Detroit recently played host to Bob Lutz, and, as is always the case, the former General Motors vice chairman dished out some great commentary. Lutz was promoting his new book Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business, and talk quickly turned to his role as it related to product development and high-level decision making at GM. While on the topic of brand management, Lutz revealed a few rather interesting tidbits about his former employer:
All Chevrolet vehicles were required to have five-spoke aluminum wheels and a chrome band up front, as part of the Bowtie brand's overall image.

Howard Stern latest in Seinfeld's passenger seat for CiCGC

Thu, 06 Feb 2014

We'll be honest: the actual cars in Jerry Seinfeld's hit internet series, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, typically take a back seat to the celebrities in the front row. Seinfeld usually throws in a few lines about his classic wheels in the first minute or so, and then moves on to the important business of sprightly conversation and pithy one-liners. It's great.
This time around, with legendary motormouth Howard Stern riding shotgun, the 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge that might have been a co-star, gets forgotten about almost completely. Instead, Stern spends a tremendous amount of screen time extolling the virtues of his therapy sessions, attempts to dive into Seinfeld's prowess as a lover and generally makes a nuisance of himself. Pretty much to plan, then.
Scroll below to hear Howard accuse Jerry of acting like Jesus, just before declaring himself the greatest radio personality in the history of the business.
