1969 Firebird 400/335 HP HO/Ram Air III Auto, PHS Documented 1 of only 499 built. "Not A Trans Am" ***NOTE*** This is a Rare Option King! Base model firebird cost around $2300. The Trans Am cost was $725.00 over that. This 400 HO special order car was shipped to Germany. Special ordered in 1968 from Myrtle Motors in New York came in @ a whopping $4851.81. In 1969 money that was more than a COPO, Yenko, or an L88 or any of the 8 Trans Am Converts. This car has had resto started & is not complete or finished. Was Frame off rotisseried & painted in Europe. The soldier that owned this car was wounded & received the Purple Heart while this car was in the middle of being restored. At that time the car was hastily bolted together. (subframe & front clip) so the car could be shipped back stateside as he was coming home. some of the cool options & parts never made it back, as well as the driver side fender got damaged in transit. The windows were taped up with plastic & the car was placed in a storage container. The port of entry was Florida. When I found the car it still had port of entry decals on the windshield. I have the European Registration & papers as well as a current Oklahoma Title for the car. This car is worthy of a complete resto & deserves to be put back in its original state of glory. There is no rust in the trunk or anywhere that I have found. if you want to see specific pics let me know. thanks. Car is missing the original Hood Tach & front clip. It has a Trans Am Hood with no hood tach also has TA front fenders & extractors. Drivers side fender was damaged in shipping it has a crack where the fender meets the door. the extractor is in the trunk I also have nice turbo 400 crossmember & driveshaft both very nice & painted, 12 bolt posi 373 gears with Eaton TruTrac & strange axles, Slide a link traction bars, the original shifter & plate, the cowl piece is painted as well. also have the lower ram air air dam or spoiler for the front, the original rear bumper as well as a new rear bumper.The dash bezel is uncut & very nice. I simply cannot put my 572 chevy in it. It does not have & appears to have never had subframe connectors. it should be put back Pontiac powered. I reserve the right to end auction @ any time. car is advertised for sale locally.

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.
General Motors today announced a truly massive recall covering some 8.4 million vehicles in North America. Most significantly, 8.2 million examples of the affected vehicles are being called back due to "unintended ignition key rotation," though GM spokesperson Alan Adler tells Autoblog that this issue is not like the infamous Chevy Cobalt ignition switch fiasco.
For the sake of perspective, translated to US population, this total recall figure would equal a car for each resident of New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, Alaska, North Dakota, the District of Columbia, Vermont and Wyoming. Combined. Here's how it all breaks down:
7,610,862 vehicles in North America being recalled for unintended ignition key rotation. 6,805,679 are in the United States.
No, you didn't read our title wrong. This is a 2013 model year Trans Am, and yes, that is a Pontiac logo affixed to the front of the car. But don't bother dialing up your local General Motors dealership just yet. This is the new Hurst Edition Trans Am created by the Trans Am Depot located in Tallahassee, FL. Having spent a number of years restoring early Trans Am models, the crew at Trans Am Depot finally did what many Pontiac enthusiasts wish GM would have done - create a modern Trans Am using the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro.
As the former owner of a 1977 model, I've been wanting to check out Trans Am Depot ever since I first saw the company have American Choppers build a trio of motorcycles inspired by its Pontiac remakes. So I jumped at the chance to head to Florida's capital city to visit the shop and drive its latest creation, the new Hurst Edition Trans Am. As a collaboration with Hurst, this car made its debut at the 2012 SEMA Show and then popped up again on our radar with a cheesy yet perfectly fitting video back in March.
