1979 Pontiac Trans Am Y84 Special Edition With Ws6 Package on 2040-cars
Richton Park, Illinois, United States
1979 Pontiac trans am real Bandit Y84 specula Edition with factory WS6 package. This car was born with every single
option I ever wanted. It has the WS6 package from the factory which gives the car 8" wide wheels and 4 wheel disc
brakes. It also gave the car a special handling package suspension upgrade. This car has NO rust anywhere. There is
zero rot under this car. It still has the original qtrs on the car. It also has the original radio still in the car
with the original rear deck in tact. I believe the factory speakers might even be in the car. I just never looked.
The radio still works and plays music. This is the highest factory real Bandit I have ever come across. Power
windows, power door locks, cruise control, tilt, power trunk release, deluxe vinyl interior, special dome lamp, air
conditioning(not presently hooked up), the options are all listed on the window sticker for you to read. It comes
with the original WS6 wheels that I took off the car before I had the new wheels and tires installed because I
wanted new wheels and tires. The old wheels are in amazing shape, They just need to be repainted. New items on this
car include gas tank, brakes, interior, headliner, Pypes x exhaust including the drop down tips I never put on,
carpet, wheels, tires and most of the weather trim. I have the PHS report along with a copy of the window sticker
which is all included. I am also selling this car with the cover shown in the picture. The original 403 is gone. I
now have an amazing Pontiac 455 that was rebuilt in 2015. This is a 1970 block. Arguably the best year 455 ever
made. The engine has less than a 1000 miles on it. I cant tell you enough how incredible this engine runs. It never
even smokes after being in storage all winter. It runs like a top. I just had DRC racing tune the car this Spring.
DRC told me that this car has a 4 bolt main. The Pontiac 455 motors are not getting any easier to find. DRC
confirmed that this is a 1970 block. There is stampings on the bottom of the engine. The turbo 400 trans was also
rebuilt and has a shift kit. It's a perfect match for this engine. I am guessing the engine makes around 400HP.
Plenty of power to turn this big tires.

Say what you will about The Monkees, but the guys in the band had great taste in automobiles. Take the Monkeemobile, for example. Built off a 1967 Pontiac GTO Convertible, the custom featured genuinely interesting bodywork and some wild engine bolt-ons. If you're a fan of 1960s pop and yearn to relive the genre's glory days, eBay Motors may have what you need. A recreation of the 1967 Monkeemobile has showed up for auction. This particular replica was built by Dakota County Customs using an four-speed GTO, just like the original.
Built for the band's 45th anniversary and the final Monkees tour last year, this Monkeemobile is faithful down to every last detail. Unfortunately, the trumpet exhaust poking out of the front fender wells and the massive gold-flake blower are for show only. Seems fitting.
If you like what you see, this machine is up for bid in Richfield, Minnesota with two days left on the auctions. So far, bidding as whipped up to $60,000 with the reserve not met. Head over to eBay Motors to have a look.
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.
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.
