Handlebar Mustache Required – 1980 Pontiac Trans Am and 1964 Chevrolet G10

April 11, 2016

If you have a handlebar mustache – original dating back to the seventies, or ironic recent growth – your choice of suitable transport is fairly limited. You can’t really have that kind of bold, in-your-face declaration of style and then drive a ’92 Honda Civic or, say, a ’10 Toyota Sienna – you need something that matches your facial hair. With such a divisive but timeless look, you need a similarly divisive ride that’s grown into timelessness by coming back thanks to a healthy amount of elapsed time as well as a similar dose of irony in current pop culture. So the first car, predictably, is this 1980 Pontiac Trans Am for sale for $3600 somewhere in Clark or Cowlitz counties, WA.

Cool Parts – Pontiac GTO Tri-Power Intake

March 22, 2016

Among all the classic car listings online, there are occasionally errant parts that weren’t correctly listed in the parts pages. Most of it is pretty ordinary stuff – bumpers from late model cars, take-off wheel sets and the like – but occasionally something interesting shows up. One example of that is this 1964 Pontiac GTO Tri-Power intake for sale for $1200 in Flowers Branch, GA.

Rhymes With? – 1976 Pontiac Sunbird

December 1, 2015

Speaking of once-popular cars that are now largely forgotten, this is one that is popular because it was produced by GM with its strong distribution network, but not because it had much intrinsic virtue. Basically a rebadged, slightly refined Chevrolet Vega, it was only offered in the notchback body style and intended to compete with “sporty” coupes like the Mustang II, Capri, Datsun 200SX, and Toyota Celica. And it was certainly there on the field, but whether it truly competed was another question. Check out this 1976 Pontiac Sunbird for sale for $3995 in Foley, MN.
