You are bidding on a 1977 Pontiac Trans Am. I am selling this car for my father, who is a lifetime Pontiac Enthusiast and this car has been a part of his collection for about 5-6 years. He bought the car from the family who bought it new right here in Fort Wayne, Indiana. This car is in mostly original condition. It has never been "restored. The car is in its original color combination and has been repainted once (sometime in the 1980s) and the paint job still shows very well but does had a nick and scratch here and there as it is an older paint job. Sometime after the repaint, the car got bumped in the rear bumper, which was then repainted. very minor incident with no damage underneath. That seems to have happened in the early 90s. That is the only "accident" history I know of on the car but it was very minor, but I wanted to disclose it. When new, this car was rust-proofed and it worked! there is one small spot of rust starting on the very bottom of the passenger side fender around the bolt, other than that the car is totally solid!! This is no bondo bucket like most on the market! all original sheetmetal! The interior of the car is in fantastic shape. We installed new carpet and door sills when we purchased the car. The dash, seats and all other interior components are original and in fantastic shape. It has the original AM/FM radio that still works great it also has a WORKING 8-track tape player (eastbound and down tape not included). The AC and heat all work as they should. The car had an after market cruise control added to the car when it was new and it still works!!! When we bought the car we installed completely new braking system including full front and rear brakes and all new brake lines and master cylinder. The car had a brand new exhaust installed about 8 years ago. The engine compartment has not been restored and does show its age (see picture) but it all works as it should and the car runs and drives great and it is a blast to drive! 93000 original mileage. That is all I can think of on the car right now but please feel free to message me and ask any questions. We can also arrange to see the car in person if youd like and I encourage you to do so. The car is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end this auction at any time. A $500 NONREFUNDABLE deposit is due via paypal within 48 hours of the auction end and the car needs to be picked up in a reasonable amount of time after the auction. Buyer is responsible to arrange shipping for this vehicle. Overall this car runs, drives and shows great. Turns head going down the road and is really fun to drive. We have had a lot of fun with this car and taken it to many shows, including the Trans Am Nationals. So it still shows well. It is hard for us to part with this car but it is time anther enthusiast enjoys it. More pictures are available upon request. As I said, feel free to ask me any questions, good luck and happy bidding!!

If you're an automotive engineer being tormented by an immortal being made of fire, then wouldn't you think it best to have a custom coupe called the FireBreather for your getaway car? That's the FireBreather in the image above, adorned by the red wings that once fronted the Pontiac Firebird, running away from a black cloud of evil in a trailer for the movie Jinn.

The Jinn is eternal evil, always waiting for the chance to make things float across rooms before going on homicidal urban rampages. The FireBreather is a Gen-V Chevrolet Camaro - from the V6 to the ZL1 - that's been through Classic Design Concepts' extensive list of exterior and interior modifications, including entirely new front and rear fascias and side skirts, sway bars and springs, Pirelli P Zeroes and an available Edelbrock supercharger.
The movie - FireBreathing chase scenes and all - was shot in Monroe, Michigan. You can watch the trailer below, but since the FireBreather only get a couple of seconds on screen, you can find out more about it on Street Legal TV and its official site.

The Detroit Free Press is reporting that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may expand a recall campaign for faulty brake lamps. The agency is currently looking into complaints that certain 2004-2011 Chevrolet Malibu models as well as some 2007-2009 Saturn Aura sedans may have brake lights that do not illuminate when the driver presses the pedal. Alternatively, the lamps may also illuminate without input from the driver. General Motors recalled 8,000 Pontiac G6 models from the 2005 model year for the same problem, and NHTSA is currently investigating whether to add 550,000 more G6 models built between 2005 and 2009 to the list for the same issue.
In addition, investigators are currently examining 97 complaints from Malibu and Aura owners with the same trouble. If NHTSA adds those models to the recall campaign, more than one million units could be covered. GM, meanwhile, says there have been no accidents or injuries as a result of the problem.
This isn't the first time we've reported positive news about General Motors retaining former Pontiac owners. Get a few more stories like this latest report from Edmund's Auto Observer, and it will mark an ongoing positive trend for GM. Edmunds.com crunched the numbers to see how well the General is hanging on to customers after shutting out the lights at Pontiac, and it found that nearly 40 percent of Pontiac owners stayed with a vehicle from a General Motors brand.
The numbers are a little lower than an earlier R.L. Polk & Company study, but Edmunds says General Motors is keeping more former Pontiac buyers than it has since 2007. Most are turning to vehicles from Chevrolet, especially during January and February of 2011, when GM incentivized Pontiac owners to stay under the umbrella. Those moves seem to have worked, and 28.1 percent of Pontiac owners trading up made the jump into a Bowtie.
Buyers that have gone elsewhere have largely stayed loyal to Domestic automakers, with Ford picking up the most conquests from Pontiac, with 9.4 percent switching. Toyota and Honda picked up 7.4 percent of the pool of former Pontiac drivers. The numbers are defying any predictions that Pontiac buyers would completely exit the General Motors fold, and have climbed up closer to parity with the retention figures of other GM brands from a 2009 low of only 16 percent retention.
