1980 Pontiac Trans Am Paint codes correctly note the car as Starlite Black, Tan interior “W” code car notes that the vehicle originally had a 301cc engine. Engine has been replaced with a 1980 Camaro Z28 350cc and a freshly rebuilt TH350 transmission. The engine has a mild performance cam, aluminum Performer intake manifold, and a Holley 650 carburetors that was rebuilt by Midas in Cleveland TN in April 2016. The engine has long tube headers and true dual exhaust with the original factory stainless dual tips. It has a new master cylinder and new brake booster. Midas in Cleveland TN installed new brake pads on it and the brakes function very well. The vehicle has a new steering box, and this means that the vehicle steers very well, with very little “slop” compared to many with the original steering boxes. The car has new paint, which I would rate as fair to good because a close inspection will note some sanding marks especially on the hood. The graphics are all new including the bird on the hood, which is actually a 1979 bird because many did not care for the original 1980 bird. It has new weather stripping from the t-tops down. Also, new headliner and rear package shelf cover. The dash has a new dash cover which covers all but one dash imperfection, which can be seen close to the radio. As pictured, this car had the unusual factory option of cruise, although it does not currently function. It has new door panels, new seat foam and fabric(the seats were taken apart and new fabric installed. This is not just a cheap slip on cover). New carpet in cabin and in the trunk. The original jack complete with the “bumper guard” are present. The original t-top covers are present in the trunk along with the complete jack assembly. The gauges light up and function, although the cabin light switch must be switched on in order for them to be on. Also the guage lenses are a bit fogged as is common with this vintage. The wiper motor and blades are new and function perfectly in the high and low settings. The headlights work but the brights do not. The car has spent its life in central TX and the previous owner was quick to point out that the car is rust-free. I climbed under the car with a flashlight and looked in the usual places especially in the doors but I have currently not found ANY rust. You could look a long time and not find a car this RUST FREE. The snowflake wheels are in overall good condition, although a close inspection will note areas of the paint have been repaired with fair results. The snowflake wheels have new center caps which look very nice. The front windshield is new and free of scratches. The t-tops functions well and can be put on and taken off with relative ease. There are some small scratches, especially on the driver t-top, but are not seen from a couple feet away. The vehicle is free of dents, however, a close inspection will note small dings in doors. The side lights and brake lights work properly. The turn signals work properly however, the left blinker indicator light on the dash does not function on the dash. Both window motors were replaced in April 2016 and the windows go up and down perfectly. The interior is overall in very good condition. The cabin light is wired but is not currently hooked up. The heat and air do not currently function, although the condenser and heater core are present on the vehicle. The previous owner told me that the heater core had been pressure tested but I have not been able to corroborate that. The car runs and drives well. I drive it to work once a week or so. The motor really sounds nice and the car draws onlookers at most stops. The title is clean and clear and in hand.

Lutz dishes dirt on GM in latest Autoline Detroit

Mon, 20 Jun 2011

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.

Hurst Edition Trans Am proves the Screaming Chicken will rise from the ashes

Wed, 31 Oct 2012

It seems the Pontiac Trans Am steadfastly refuses to die. Ever since Chevrolet was granted a retrofied Camaro to compete with the Ford Mustang, Pontiac lovers have lamented the loss of this 1970s icon. And, looking at the Hurst Edition from Trans Am Depot, shown here at the 2012 SEMA Show, may explain what all the fuss is about.
It's not going to appeal to everyone's muscle-car tastes, but there's certainly room for a brash-and-bold black-and-gold Special Edition in many a Trans Am lover's garage. After all, if you want the keys to a custom pony car, you'll certainly get noticed in this one. If this scheme isn't your bag,, you can alternatively order your Hurst Edition in white and gold or silver and black. Oh, and don't forget a color-coordinated Screaming Chicken on the hood.
No matter which way you choose to go, your inner Burt Reynolds will appreciate the Eibach suspension kit, forged wheels with Pirelli PZero tires, functional shaker hood, fender air extractors, rear spoiler and, of course, a Hurst shifter inside. The interior is emblazoned with all manner of special touches, including a Hurst dash plate and T/A stitching on the Katzkin two-tone leather seats.

1969 Pontiac GTO Judge vs. 2006 GTO, which Goat gets your vote?

Mon, 08 Sep 2014

The Pontiac GTO was perhaps the most iconic muscle car of the '60s and early '70s. With its beefy V8 and color palette screaming for attention, it summarized in a single vehicle everything that made the era so appealing to many young people. Pontiac tried to collect just a few drops of that aura again in the 2000s with a revived GTO, but with decidedly mixed results. The performance was still there with its big V8, but the looks never quite lived up to the powertrain. Now, Generation Gap wants to know which of these Goats is the one to own.
Things are skewed immediately because the 2006 GTO here is a real ringer. It comes from famous tuner Ken Lingenfelter's collection, and it's a one-off example partially fettled by GM Performance boasting a twin-turbocharged LS2 V8 with a claimed 750 horsepower and a wide-body kit. This Goat definitely isn't what you're going to find just browsing for one to buy in the newspaper. Still, dip the throttle just a little, and this GTO pulls like a freight train. It's enough to turn the two hosts into giggling schoolboys behind the wheel.
The '69 GTO Judge here is also out of Lingenfelter's collection, but this one is all stock with a 400-cubic-inch (6.6-liter) V8 and a Ram Air hood for a claimed 366 hp. It might not have the unbelievable power of the turbo '06, but it makes up for it with style to spare.
