  5. Hi all, seems like a great site for Pontiac info, etc. I have a passion for early second generation Firebird Formulas. What I would love to find is a 1971 or 1972 Firebird Formula 455 HO. Not an easy task, but I will do my best to fine one some day.
  6. What are active safety features and how do they work? From automatic emergency braking to lane keeping assist, active safety features are confusing drivers even as they come in more vehicles. 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid overview The 2020 Ford Escape compact crossover hybrid is poised to hit a fuel-economy high. Tesla Model 3 finally earns top safety...View the full article
  7. Well, possibly, if the wife finds this out ———— that may be where you’re at!😮! I won’t tell though!
  8. Safety has always been a top concern for car shoppers. Recently, it has become a source of frustration. Nearly a quarter of car shoppers who bought or leased a model year 2019 vehicle found the technology to be annoying or bothersome, according to a J.D. Power study of more than 20,000 consumers within the first 90 days of ownership. Many of the...View the full article

  10. Correction - almost anything beats watching the Lions. Having to watch Hallmark movies with the wife vs. watching the Lions ? I''ll go mow the lawn - in the rain.
  11. Does anyone know if the Solstice GXP and Sky Redline suffer from the same issues that the 2.4L (some turbo'd) Ecotec's suffer(ed) from (i.e. oil burning)? The defective 2.4's were manufactured (supposedly) between 2010 and 2017 and Pontiac was wound down right around 2010 but given there may have been some slight overlap in engine manufacturing timing... ... just curious (especially after reading the above article and how it referenced the naturally aspirated Ecotec). Every so often I will point a car out to my wife and say that was be a fun car show car for her to drive and two cars in particular that comes up often is the SSR (which she hates) or the Solstice / Sky (which she's OK with). If the opportunity ever came along to get one of these, I'm curious if I need to specifically stay away from the GXP / Redline trims. https://www.carcomplaints.com/news/2019/gm-oil-consumption-lawsuit.shtml
  12. Exactly what Frosty said! Don’t let desire get the best of you! View it as a business transaction nothing more, no matter how much you want the car. Cross all the T’s dot all the I’s. Celebrate after you’ve made a good deal!
  13. I got my window sticker in the mail yesterday for the show. I am still BOND - #0007!
  14. According to Haggerty Collector Car Insurance, in top condition (#1), this car should be worth $56.000. So the price should only go down from there. So things to consider. 1. Is it a true GTO (VIN begins with 242, anything else it is really a Tempest or a Lemans in GTO clothing - aka a clone)? Clones are worth a lot less than an original GTO. 2. Is it a real Judge? Only PHS (Pontiac Historical Services) documentation will verify that since the Judge was an option off the GTO only. Tempest, Lemans, and GTOs can all be cloned into Judges. So if the owner has the PHS documentation for the car, have him/her show it to you. 3. Is this a numbers matching GTO (does the engine and transmission match the VIN # of the car)? Non-numbers matching powertrains often devalue a cars worth if it is a desirable collector car. 4. What condition are the mechanical systems? Does the engine run? Does the car drive? Etc. 5. How rough is the sheet metal, paint, and chrome? Are pieces missing? 6. How rough is the interior? Will it need new carpet, seats, etc? The bottom line is the car is worth what the seller is willing to sell it for and what someone is willing to pay for it. Without pictures or seeing the car, I am not sure what I think this car is worth. If there is a lot of rust repair, I don't think I'd go over $15k - even if it is an original, numbers matching Judge because of the amount of money it will take to bring it back. You just have to use some common sense and your instinct and the art of negotiation.
  15. Hello!, I'm new so if this is in the wrong place please redirect me. I've recently started to look at 1969 GTOs and one really caught my eye but I'm a little wary of it. It's a 69 4 speed GTO Judge with ram air 3, a radio, power steering and brakes. The car is pretty rough but that's nothing new to me. I'm wondering what something like this would be worth in a 7 to 8 condition, I'm not very caught up with the values of these cars and figured somebody here might be able to help, I don't want to exceed the true value of the car when trying to fix it. Thanks for the help!
  16. It's confirmed - Lou Santiago is coming back to the Charleston Rod Run and Doo Wop! Louuuuuuuu! Also this year's Saturday evening concern will feature The Vogues.
  17. Yeah, unfortantely the forecast right now is cloudy with a 55% chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm. Not good convertible weather in my book. Still it beats staying home and watching the Lions (anything beats watching the Lions).
  18. True. Nobody every brags how great Floridian summers are. The heat, the high humidity, fire ants, gators, bugs, hurricanes, tropical rain nearly every or every other day. Still you get to wear flip flops to work.
  19. Not in FL . High humidity and high temps. Except today, we have a "cold front" that brought it down to bearable. Good luck with the paint job @notallthere!
