This beautiful WS6 Trans Am has been adult owned and kept in heated garages since new. The original owner was a woman in her 40's who due to medical reasons sold it to her friend, a 52 yr. old man, in 2004 when it had 5400 miles on it. The second owner had all of the improvements professionally done. I have receipts for everything except the roll bar, sub frame connectors and window tinting.Some of the improvements are:
Turbocharger, intercooler, Granatelli MAF, fuel management mod, boost and fuel pressure gauges, dyno tuned. All work performed by Turbo Technologies in Tacoma, WA. (Google them).
I have dyno sheet showing 430 HP and 510 TQ at the wheels.
Centerforce Dual Friction clutch, Mcleod master cyl., new slave cyl. and throw out bearing.
Flowmaster exhaust. Still retains catalytic converters and passed emissions test in WA.
Welded in subframe connectors and 4 pt. roll bar to stiffen chassis.
Torq Thrust wheels 17X9.5 frt and 17X11 rear.
Nitto NT01 tires with 2K miles. 275/40ZR/17 front 315/35ZR/17 rear.
I bought this car with 11,414 miles on it last year. I am 57 yrs. old. This car has not been raced or abused by some young kid. I have included a pic of some "curb rash" on the RF wheel and a small blem on the drivers door panel. The car does have 13K miles on it so it is not perfect but it is darn close.

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.
When General Motors put down several of its brands in recent years, it also let loose thousands of brand-loyal customers who will eventually need another car.

R.L. Polk Associates estimates there are more than 18 million cars from 16 discontinued makes on the road today. Those "orphan owners" have sales-hungry competitors seeing dollar signs. GM is offering Saturn owners $1,000 cash toward a Chevy Cruze, Cadillac CTS or a GMC Acadia. Ford is giving its Mercury lease customers a chance to get out of their contracts with no early-termination penalty and offering to waive six remaining payments if they drive off in a Ford or Lincoln.
Edmunds.com research shows the efforts are paying off somewhat for GM, with 39 percent of Pontiac owners, 37 percent of Hummer owners and 31 percent of Saturn owners taking delivery of another GM-branded vehicle. But that leaves as much as 69 percent of owners going elsewhere. Ford, Honda and Toyota seem to be attracting many former GM owners.
Ford buyers appear to love their cars more than customers of any other automotive brand, returning back to the American automaker when it comes time to purchase their next vehicle. According to a study by Experian Automotive, six of the top 10 vehicles for customer brand loyalty wear badges from the Blue Oval. That includes the Ford Fusion (62.4 percent), Ford Edge (57.9 percent), Ford Five Hundred/Taurus (56 percent), Ford Freestyle (51.9 percent), Ford Escape (49.4 percent) and the Ford Focus (47.57 percent).
Other vehicles making up the top 10 include the Toyota Prius (52 percent), Chevy Impala (51.7 percent), Toyota Camry (47.8 percent) and Toyota Corolla (47.56 percent). This brings up an interesting question: With the closing of automotive brands like Saturn and Pontiac, where are those buyers to turn for their next automotive purchase?
Apparently, not back to General Motors. According to Experian, Pontiac owners are most likely to look to the Ford lineup for their next car or truck and Saturn shoppers will switch to Toyota or Honda - not particularly surprising given that Saturn was meant to compete with import brands. Experian predicts that GM's overall market share will fall from 20 percent to about 17.5 percent, with most of the slack being picked up by Ford, Honda and Toyota.
