Up for sale is my 1976 Pontiac Trans Am 455. PHS documented. This Trans Am has a Firethorn red exterior with a Firethorn red interior. Factory options include 455 engine, hood decal, custom trim group, front console, and radio stereo (long gone) The drivetrain is complete matching numbers  ie engine, tranny, and rear end. Original 455 engine has been tastefully modified internally including crower cam, rhoades lifters, ram air exhaust manifolds, MSD ignition, chromoly pushrods, double rolling timing chain. high volume oil pump etc. Factory cast iron heads with aluminum intake. This was was not an amatuer engine build engine runs and sounds nice. Trans Am purists know that 1976 was the last year of round headlights, last year for the 455 manual four speed option, and the only year Firethorn red was offered for the Trans Am model. This car was rustproofed and undercoated when sold. As a result, the tail pan, floor pans, and frame rails are rust free. The body is very straight with original fit and finish you would expect from an original car. The base clear paint shows well despite it being over twenty years old ( rear wheel flares have minor paints chips here and there tough not bad).  This car is part of my personal collection and I have decided to sell it to help fund the purchase of a vacation home. This Trans Am was owned by a deceased brother of mine and has great sentimental value to me. My brother purchased this car locally in 2004 from a gentleman who owned it for nearly 27 years. A name and phone number will be provided to the new owner upon sale. With this being said, please do not waste my time with ridiculous offers, emails, or phone calls. I am very aware of the Collector Car market specifically the value of 70s Trans Ams.  My feedback speaks for itself.  I have personally owned approximately 50 second generation Trans Ams and consider myself both truthful as well as knowledgeable when it comes to these cars.  This car IS NOT a restored car, it has patina and value that most restored Trans Ams on the market do not have. If you have been in the market for one of these cars call me for a detailed owner history as well as description. Collector cars such as mine continue to be shipped out of this country everyday, don't let this car leave the states Thank You John Casey 978-994-6884.

GM recalling another 1.3-million cars over power steering woes

Mon, 31 Mar 2014 16:53:00 EST

When it rains, it pours. General Motors has announced yet another major recall, covering 1.3 million units in the American market over concerns that the power steering could suddenly fail. As reported by The Detroit News' David Shepardson, GM has now recalled nearly ten times as many cars as it did all of last year.
It's important to note that should this problem arise in these cars, the steering won't fail completely, however, power steering could suddenly stop functioning. Manual steering would still be possible, but as GM says, there's an increased risk of accidents, particularly at lower speeds.
Like the ignition switch recall, this latest problem covers a wide range of vehicles from Chevrolet, Saturn and Pontiac. Normally, we'd give you the full rundown in paragraph form, but the variety of models and model years means a list is just easier. So, have a look, directly from GM's press release:

Airbag recall adds 85k Pontiac Vibes to tally

Fri, 13 Jun 2014 15:44:00 EST

The repairs needed for the faulty airbag inflators supplied by Takata continue to expand. Toyota initially announced a recall of 766,300 vehicles equipped with the bad part on June 11 as a followup to a campaign from 2013. Soon after, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened a preliminary evaluation into five automakers who also used the component in their models. Now, NHTSA has released the official announcement of the latest Toyota recall listing 844,277 affected cars, including the newly added 2003-2004 Pontiac Vibe.
While NHTSA's document didn't include a model-by-model breakdown, General Motors spokesperson Alan Adler estimated to Autoblog that roughly 85,000 Vibes in the US would be covered under the latest recall. Like the rest of the affected models, the airbag inflator could rupture in a crash causing the bag not to work correctly, possibly spraying metal fragments at the occupant.
Toyota spokesperson Cindy Knight told Autoblog that the reason for the disparity between the earlier press release and NHTSA document was that Toyota was continuing to comb through VINs to create a list of affected vehicles. The original number was an estimate of that process at the time. Scroll down to the recall report from NHTSA.

This 1927 Oakland is a minimalist hot rod

Fri, 21 Feb 2014 16:57:00 EST

There are hundreds of American automakers that sprung up during the dawn of the automotive era, only to fold into obscurity or get gobbled up by what would eventually become the Big Four (yes, we're counting AMC here). Oakland is one such company, which was the forbearer for General Motors' Pontiac division. Sold until 1931, you simply don't see Oakland-badged cars anymore. Unless, that is, you know Brian Bent.
Bent drives a 1927 Oakland that still rides on wooden wheels. Its original wooden wheels, from the sound of it. That makes this anachronist and his Oakland the perfect subject for a Petrolicious video. Like many of the cars highlighted by Petrolicious, this old Oakland has had some work done to it, featuring a Pontiac flathead engine that's been pushed forward and a clutch pack built by Bent.
Take a look below for a closer look at this rare and fascinating Oakland.
