    Napoli Kia of Milford, Connecticut, of all places is selling a peculiar car. It's not just that it's selling a Pontiac, nor that it's selling a Pontiac from 1964. More peculiar than all of that is the fact that it's a one-of-one Pontiac Banshee. With an asking price of $750,000, the history of...

    Rare Rides reviews another Pontiac today. And much like the recently featured Bonneville, it's large and in charge, from the Seventies, and has two doors. Let's see how much horsepower the 1977 Can Am gained through stickers and spoilers. The Can Am was one of the final developments of the...

    If you're looking for a Firebird, then we may have something for you. It's a barn find collection, and yes, you're probably getting tired of the term barn find, but sometimes it's more accurate than others. This stash of eight Firebirds (and one Le Mans) was pulled from a warehouse in Minnesota...

    Pontiac had it rough for a long time. Expected to make do with very little for years, it's amazing the brand had the ability to maintain its own special flavor for so long.  As Motor Week explains here in its latest retro review from 1986, the Fiero GT had a big role in elevating the brand...

    The history of the Pontiac Grand Prix stretches back to 1962 and finds its origins in the Advanced Engineering department that was headed by John De Lorean. So it makes sense that in 1989, Pontiac wanted to give its Grand Prix Turbo real performance bona fides. The brand teamed up with...

    Apparently, there are things coming from the North Pole that are better than presents under the tree. This '69 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air, once owned by GM legend Jim Wangers, for example. The car is featured on Hagerty's "Barn Find Hunter," which was found in North Pole, Alaska. Although the...

    Sorry Burt, this is now the coolest Trans AM in the world. It's a 7-foot wide, 700 hp monster that wears the most twisted set of headers this side of the bundle of snakes GT40. As delivered, the 1970 Trans Am was 73.4-inches wide. Now, it's got an 84-inch track. This chicken has been stretched...

    Despite entering the '70s as one of the biggest stars in the world, Steve McQueen ended the '80s with the relatively obscure "The Hunter."

    Life is hard. Rebuilding engines is harder. So watch Hagerty's crack team of time-lapse rebuilders take a Pontiac 389 from very dilapidated to very clean in just 10 minutes. The video is part of Hagerty's excellent Redline Rebuild series and may have been its most challenging. While most of the...

    Today's Rare Ride is what happens when you take the generally British idea of a shooting brake and combine it with some designers in Michigan who had big ideas. It's the 1985 Trans Am Kammback Concept. It's real, and it is spectacular.  The Trans Am name first appeared as a performance trim...

    We found it. By definition there had to be one, we just weren't sure we'd see it, know of it, or even notice it if it drove by. But here it is. We were recently in Utah to take in the sights and sounds of the Bonneville World of Speed. While there, we met some interesting people and what is...

    It got real dusty in a rural Alberta auction house, after a Pontiac Parisienne sold three times, then was returned to the family that was selling it. It started with a motorcycle collision in May. Brent and Nicole Keryluke were killed in the collision, leaving two young children behind. The...

    Maybe this is a moment. Maybe this is an olive branch that will bring worlds of greenery together with the old fashioned crowd, to make people who are into magnets get along with those who still firmly believe that there's no replacement for displacement. Maybe it's just dumb. You could hardly...

    This Trans Am is really a Camaro, but it's going Demon hunting if the manufacturer has anything to say about it. Trans Am Worldwide is doing the Lord's work, creating the Screaming Chickens that General Motors decided would never be made. Not content with just Bandit-style bodywork, Trans Am...

    For those of us who weren't around for this, it's stunning to look back at how quickly the muscle car era died. For example, sales of the Firebird dropped more than 56% between 1971 and 1972. So, by the time the Trans Am Super Duty rolled off the line in '73, the fun was done. With a 455 ci...
