****1969 Pontiac GTO Convertible****
Not a clone - Real 242 car, 400-4bbl HO, TH400 automatic on column car.
Came from factory in cool red on red interior w/ white power top.
Car is PHS documented.
It's a complete car that needs resto but very solid start.
Pin holes in floor & trunk pan. Frame is fine. Doors, hood & rockers are good. Engine compartment solid.
Car really needs interior work, new top & some basic body work/paint before it is ready to go..but it does RUN & DRIVE.
Rust wise the worst seems to be trunk lid lips with some in trunk gutters, lower quarters & lower fender.
A strong running rebuilt 1967 400HO GTO motor is under the hood.
A strong TH400 automatic that shifts fine. (Also includes an extra TH400 - the #s matching one!)
Mechanically, it will need some more brake work (car stops but not great), exhaust, motor pulley's, etc but it could be driven once that's done as it has just had the following work done--
New battery, hoses, starter, wires, plugs, distributor, master cylinder, drive shaft, rebuilt carb & electric fuel pump installed.
Buy this now & have it ready for Spring cruise nights.....awesome American Muscle Car.
It's 1 of 4,385 '69 GTO Convertible 400-4, A/T cars. Not clear on how many of those were Red on Red and White top...but it's probably not a ton.Here's a video of car running

General Motors has announced another set of recalls, covering some 2.42 million cars in the United States. For those keeping track, The General has now recalled over 15 million cars worldwide this year due to various issues.
Thu, 13 Feb 2014 10:15:00 EST
Here's the breakdown for this most recent set of recalls:
1,339,355 - Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia models from the 2009 to 2014 model years; Saturn Outlook models from the 2009 to 2010 model years
General Motors has announced that it will be recalling 778,562 compact cars after six people were killed in accidents, partially due to the airbags' failure to deploy. An issue with the ignition switch is causing the airbag issues, as well as causing the engine and other components to shut off without warning. The recall covers the 2005 to 2007 model year Chevrolet Cobalt and 2007 Pontiac G5. (Note that the Cobalt pictured above is a 2009 model.)

According to a report from Automotive News, a number of factors can cause the ignition to switch out of the run position, including weights on the key ring, rough or bumpy roads or other "jarring" events. Any of these situations could lead to some vehicle components not functioning properly.
There have been five fatal front-impact crashes that took the lives of six people, although as a GM spokesman noted, all five of the crashes happened off road and at high speed. In each of these cases, though, the lack of airbags wasn't the only lethal factor - alcohol and failure to wear a seat belt also played a role. Outside of the fatal accidents, there have been 17 other crashes where airbags didn't deploy. It's unclear if any of these crashes were caused by the engine shutting off.
There are few things simultaneously more romantic and idiotic than taking a road trip in a beaten-down heap of a car. Trust us. We know. David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of Hot Rod Magazine fame recently undertook an epic trip from El Paso, Texas to Los Angeles with the express goal of doing so for under $1,500, including the purchase price of a vehicle, food, lodging, repairs and, most importantly, fuel. With this in mind, the duo settled on a 1972 Pontiac Catalina for a lofty $650. Hilarity ensues.
Realizing that no one actually wants a Catalina sulking around the shop, Freiburger and Finnegan put the car up for auction on eBay Motors the instant they had the title in hand. By the time they rolled into Hot Rod HQ, the vehicle sold for a little over $500.
