Sweet Mother Of Off-Road Fiero Ferrari Jeep Conversions

Someone sent us another half-completed Fiero conversion on Craigslist this morning and I damn near deleted it... but my perverted curiosity implored me investigate. What I found was the unholy spawn of a Wrangler, a fauxrarri, and GM's little targa. » 1/24/14 9:54am 1/24/14 9:54am

Your Ridiculously Awesome Pontiac Firebird Wallpaper Is Here

Some may call it sacrilege, but I actually found the Pontiac Firebird to be the prettier, albeit more overlooked sister of the Chevrolet Camaro. Especially in the second generation, when you could get that silly and wonderful flaming chicken on the hood. But now you can have the tailpipes right on your computer. » 11/30/13 5:00pm 11/30/13 5:00pm

GM Knew Pontiac Was On The Ropes Before The Feds Ordered It Killed

Over the weekend, former General Motors Vice Chairman Bob Lutz dropped a bombshell on car enthusiasts and policy wonks when he revealed for the first time that the federal government told GM to drop Pontiac or they wouldn't get a bailout.

Get Sad Because Bob Lutz Says Pontiac Was Going To Make A New GTO

I'm a big fan of the last-gen Pontiac GTO, the boring-looking Australian captive import with a not-at-all boring pair of LS V8 engines. That one only lasted from 2004 and 2006, and it was never replaced. But it almost was, according to Bob Lutz! » 8/08/13 11:48am 8/08/13 11:48am

The Most Laughably Terrible Car Name Revivals Of All Time

News that the legendary Chevrolet Chevelle nameplate may be making a comeback yesterday was mainly met with trepidation rather than optimism, even among the most hardcore GM faithful. As much as we all would like to see the Chevelle come back as a muscular coupe with a V8 — or maybe even that 420-horsepower V6 from the … » 4/06/13 12:29pm 4/06/13 12:29pm

The New Hurst Trans Am Will Make Your Life Exponentially More Awesome

Are you one of those sad, lonely people whose life isn't worth living anymore because GM no longer makes the Pontiac Trans Am? Well, don't let the lack of a modern Pontiac version of the new Camaro (or even the lack of Pontiac, for that matter) get you down — this Florida company has you covered. » 3/17/13 12:40pm 3/17/13 12:40pm
