Gresham, Oregon, United States

This GTO will make a new owner interested in restoring it to its natural beauty is certainly a worthwhile Project.       It began its life in Fremont California and was sold by a Pontiac Dealer in San Francisco.      Copies of the PHS Documents accompany this sale.        It appears to have lived its life on the West coast as it still has the California Black license plate.      Car is presently in Portland Oregon.      I have only seen one 1966 GTO with the Color code BW which is a Dark Blue Charcoal lower portion and a Platinum upper color.     The elegance of that color is like looking at a Rolls-Royce which uses a lot of the dark/light combinations.        After seeing it on a GTO for the first time, I immediately became a fan.     Over the years, this GTO,  has been rode hard and put away wet, so to speak, by a bunch of dreamers.     I purchased the car out of Western Washington which is hot and dry climate, though I do not know how long it was there.       My reason for buying it was to part it out for my other projects, seeing as how it was t-boned in the passenger side rear.         After reviewing the the total car, I do not feel it is a candidate for destruction.      I have talked to several auto body guys and they agree that it can be readily repaired without using a quarter panel or a donor body.     The GTO has solid floors including the trunk.      The Frame is solid and has light surface rust in expected areas.         The T-boned right frame rail extension will need straightened or replaced.    The tail light housings are still good and possibly both the lens are good , one for sure, but right side grill covering lens is toast.      

The Hood, passenger fender, doors, all glass, bumper, most chrome pieces, grills, header panel, core support, inner fender wells, head light housings and bezels, roof section, driver rear quarter, major frame rails, cowl section, steering wheel chrome, rear end, front bumper, gas tank are all good usable parts, plus many more not mentioned, considering the age of most of those items.    Note the passenger door main window is missing, the the internal working parts are all intact.      

Originally the GTO came with options that have been removed or replaced.    The passenger reclining seat, Rally wheels, 3;55 safe-track rear end ( now has a 3:25) (not sure about safety track working), radio, speakers, original WT motor and 4 speed transmission are not there.  Presently has a non original Pontiac V 8 motor with a automatic transmission that is dropped in the slot.     Have no history on motor or transmission, and assume they do not run.         The manual pedals are still in place.     All of those missing items are available to purchase in most cases.     Might take some doing to get a reclining passenger seat.        The Drivers fender is toast.      A portion of the rear window side piece has been removed as shown in the pictures and I do not have a clue.        Needs to be repaired. 

Those of you that are interested, and have questions, may contact me either through this posting or call me 360-773-3887 ask for RD.

Automakers tussle over owners of 'orphan' makes

Thu, 10 May 2012

When General Motors put down several of its brands in recent years, it also let loose thousands of brand-loyal customers who will eventually need another car.
R.L. Polk Associates estimates there are more than 18 million cars from 16 discontinued makes on the road today. Those "orphan owners" have sales-hungry competitors seeing dollar signs. GM is offering Saturn owners $1,000 cash toward a Chevy Cruze, Cadillac CTS or a GMC Acadia. Ford is giving its Mercury lease customers a chance to get out of their contracts with no early-termination penalty and offering to waive six remaining payments if they drive off in a Ford or Lincoln.
Edmunds.com research shows the efforts are paying off somewhat for GM, with 39 percent of Pontiac owners, 37 percent of Hummer owners and 31 percent of Saturn owners taking delivery of another GM-branded vehicle. But that leaves as much as 69 percent of owners going elsewhere. Ford, Honda and Toyota seem to be attracting many former GM owners.

Trans Am Depot teases 2014 GTO

Mon, 24 Jun 2013

Here comes the Judge. Court is in session. The verdict is in. How many more tired clichés can we come up with? It hardly seems to matter, because it's happening: Trans Am Depot has announced via the teaser video below that it is launching a 2014 GTO, complete with Carousel Red (bright orange, really) paint and full Judge badging.
The car is based on Trans Am Depot's 6T9 Goat, which, in case you don't get the reverential references, is meant to mimic the look of the 1969 Pontiac GTO. As with the company's other cars -including the 2013 Hurst Edition Trans Am we recently drove - the GTO will be based on the current Chevy Camaro, which means two doors, V8 engines and rear-wheel drive, just like the muscle cars of days past.
As for actual details of what's under the 2014 GTO's hood, we're completely left hanging. We'd expect some sort of power adder (turbo, supercharger or possibly some other form of a highly massaged version of the Camaro's V8), and we certainly know that GM has any number of hi-po crate engines to choose from.

Aficionauto sits down with The Hoff and KITT

Fri, 10 Oct 2014

The latest video from The Aficionauto is the perfect palate cleanser for Knight Rider fans after finding out that Justin Bieber is the voice of KITT in an upcoming film. Host Christopher Rutkowski says that the Knight Industries Two Thousand is one of the most requested vehicles to appear on the series and for good reason - Michael Knight's Pontiac Trans-Am is among the most famous cars to ever appear on television.
While the video isn't able to showcase one of the original KITTs from the series, it does get star David Hasselhoff to drive his personal replica and talk about the lasting legacy of the show. The highlight here might be seeing The Hoff back behind the wheel in the open desert basically recreating Knight Rider's opening sequence.
With all of its flashing lights and gizmos, you can probably make the argument that KITT is pretty cheesy, and the show itself was never exactly a pillar of high-quality drama on television. Despite that, the series still provides a ton of good-natured fun, and The Hoff's continued enthusiasm for it is pretty infectious. Check out The Aficionauto video to take another ride with Knight Rider.
