1978 Pontiac Trans Am Bandit Special Edition 6.6 Litre.  This is a rare optioned car that came with Standard Shift, Hurst Hatch T-Roofs but with No Air Conditioning.  This car was built in Norwood Ohio, and sold new in Canada, (which is probably why the car was ordered and/or built without A/C).  I've owned this car for 27 years.  It was completely restored in 1990.  Since then I've made some changes, mostly mechanical, in order to make the car more drivable.  Most recently I just installed a brand new Pontiac 400 Motor and Tremec 5 Speed Transmission.  The original Super T-10 4 Speed Shifter is included with the car.  Other modifications include rebuilt 3:90 rear end.  The car originally had 3:42's.  The car still has the original rear in it, I only changed the internals.  New KYB Gas Adjust Shocks, B-Cool Radiator, Twin Electric Fans, Oversized Alternator, MSD Ignition, and Sub Frame Connectors.  I recovered the original seats in black cloth.  I changed the original gold dash trim piece back in 1990 because the original was damaged when I was restoring the car.  I also used 1977 door panels because the original door panels did not show well.  Back in 1990 there were no 'Bandit' Special Edition trim parts available, only standard Trans Am parts, so my options were limited.  This car has been garaged since I bought it in 1987, never seeing rain or snow.  Email me if you have any questions and thanks for looking.

Pontiac Firebird in latest Generation Gap scrap

Tue, 30 Sep 2014

Generation Gap is mining the Lingenfelter collection again this week to compare two very different interpretations of the Pontiac Firebird. An original 1968 example goes toe-to-toe with a 2010 Lingenfelter Trans Am to see whether the old man or the modern re-imagining takes the crown.
Being from the Lingenfelter collection, both cars are absolutely immaculate. The '68 packs a Pontiac 350-cubic-inch (5.7-liter) V8 with a claimed 320 horsepower and some classic, muscular style with a hood-mounted tach. Plus, it's painted in an understated shade of green that you don't usually see.
In the other corner is Lingenfelter's pumped-up take on the classic shape based on the modern Camaro, and this is just one of six concept versions ever made. It wears an eye-catching, vintage-inspired livery of blue with a white stripe package. Under its shaker hood is a 455-cubic-inch (7.5-liter) V8 with a reported 655 hp and 610 pound-feet of torque.

GM expands ignition switch recall to over 1.3 million cars amid climbing death toll

Tue, 25 Feb 2014



588,000 Saturn Sky, Saturn Ion, Pontiac Solstice and Chevy HHR models join the 778,000 cars already being recalled.
General Motors has announced a massive expansion of a 778,000-unit recall we told you about two weeks ago, doubling not only the total number of cars affected but expanding the recall beyond Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 models previously mentioned. The recall originally centered around ignition switches that could slip out of the "run" position if jostled or if any weight was applied to the key in the cylinder.

David Hasselhoff's own KITT replica up for auction

Tue, 08 Apr 2014

Depending on when and where you grew up, the name David Hasselhoff likely conjures up images of Knight Rider, Baywatch, pop singer, or possibly a washed-up TV actor, but one thing that can never be taken away from The Hoff is his connection to one of the greatest automotive icons in pop culture. The Knight Industries Two Thousand, usually shortened to simply KITT, was the real star of Knight Rider for many fans. Based on a Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, the car combined snarky quips for comedy relief and stunts to provide much of the show's actions. Now, Julien's Auctions is selling Hasselhoff's own replica as part of a larger sale of the actor's personal memorabilia collection.
This recreation is based on a 1986 Firebird and comes with all of the tech on the inside that now seems hilariously outdated, like the yoke steering wheel and plethora of buttons. The interior also thoughtfully includes a voice box with over 4,000 sound clips from the show. With a 5.0-liter V8 and an automatic transmission, performance is likely adequate and period correct. According to the listing, this car was created by fans and given to the Hoff. Sadly, the replica doesn't convert to Super Pursuit Mode like KITT could in later seasons, and we most associate KITT with conventional front-hinged doors to go with the power t-tops and ejector seats.
Bidding currently sits $27,500 with eight bids, since starting at $15,000. Julien's predicts it will sell for between $30,000 and $50,000. If there is some nostalgia for KITT in your heart, there is still plenty of time to bid.
