CHARLIE'S ANGELS: FULL THROTTLE featured 1967 GTO. Excellent chance to own a rare, high quality muscle car AND an unbelievable movie memoribilia item from hit movie featuring Cameron Diaz, Demi Moor. The car is spotlighted in the beach scene (as well as few other scenes) where Cameron Diaz is holding surfboard and trying to distract bad guy Rodrigo Santoro. I included a pic from the movie. Comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity from studio.
Runs very strong and drives great!!! Factory 400 HO engine, 4 speed transmission with Hurst shifter . (If you really get on the gas pedal, this beast will slam you into your seat). Paint is very nice, but not perfect...understandably for its age it has a few nicks, scratches in the paint. Overall, a wonderful wonderful car that gets alot of attention. I cannot count the times people/strangers have come up and asked if they can take pictures or for me to put it in a car show. It attracts so much interest and even moreso especially when people hear of its movie theatre history. Its a DOUBLE WHAMMY....classic muscle car AND hit movie memoribilia. Really makes for a nice collectible car that is only going to go up in value. Being sold as is.
DONT MISS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN A PIECE OF AUTO AND MOVIE HISTORY.

The Poncho is dead. Long live the Poncho. Like certain other reoccurring personal maladies, the aftermarket community simply can't let the Trans Am go without another flare up. The guys at Trans Am Depot have worked up a quick commercial for their newest creation: The 2013 Trans Am Hurst Edition, and it watches pretty much like you'd expect it to. The footage is comprised of just about every TA male fantasy you can conceive of, from Daisy Dukes and white tank tops to tramp stamps, bikinis and ice cream cones. There simply aren't words for what you'll see below.
Of course, we like our T-Tops as much as the next guy. If you like what you see in the videos, you can pick up your very own TA by heading over to the Trans Am Depot site. The guys even have Chevrolet Camaro-based versions of the Pontiac GTO if the '77 TA treatment is too much for your tastes. Enjoy, but don't say we didn't warn you.
At fourteen years of age, Kathryn DiMaria has already done what many self-proclaimed gearheads won't even attempt in their lifetimes. The Dearborn, Michigan teen is rebuilding a car from the ground up.
The intrepid youngster asked her parents when she was just twelve to start a Pontiac Fiero project, even offering to pony up all the funds herself. Father, Jerry DiMaria only expected the project to last a few months, but two years later, Kathryn is still at it. In this CNN video, the two are at Maker Faire (a DIY festival) rebuilding a 3.4-liter V6 engine out of a Chevrolet Camaro to replace the 2.8-liter mill found in the Fiero.
The whole family hast pitched in, with Kathryn's mother teaching her how to sew in order to complete the interior, father Jerry providing much of the technical know-how, and even her sister is chronicling Kathryn's progress through photos. Jerry even started a thread in a Fiero forum which has been live for two years and is now 22 pages long. Of the project, one forum member wrote, "welcome to the madness."
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.
