Pontiac Aztek + Trans Am = Trans Aztek

Pontiac Aztek + Trans Am = Trans Aztek
The Pontiac Aztek is arguably one of the ugliest vehicles ever created. While the early take on a crossover certainly wasn’t Pontiac’s proudest design moment, the brand did make lots of great sports cars over the years, with the 1970s Firebird Trans Am being one of the most iconic of its cars.

Knight Rider KITT Pursuit Car Heads to Auction

Knight Rider KITT Pursuit Car Heads to Auction
All of the car-themed TV shows I watched growing up in the ’80s are part of the reason I am a car guy today. One of the ones I loved the most was Knight Rider. I watched that show each week, and after seeing the first episode where KITT transformed into pursuit mode, I prayed each new episode he would do it again.

Inside the Weird and Wonderful Pontiac Aztek
There are few things that automotive journalists fully agree on, but if you put 100 auto journos in a room and asked them to name the five ugliest cars ever designed, I bet the Pontiac Aztek would be in everyone’s top three.

Rent Vin Diesel’s xXx Pontiac GTO
The thing I remember most about the original xXx flick with Vin Diesel was that sweet purple 1967 Pontiac GTO that has missiles in the headlights, and the roof that could be ejected. If you liked that car and thought it would be cool to drive it, here is your chance.

First Two Pontiac Firebirds Set to Take Flight at Auction
These are some rare birds indeed. The very first production Pontiac Firebirds built will soon go on sale at Barrett-Jackson, and you can bet they’ll command a staggering bounty. These 1967 Firebirds – a coupe and a convertible – rolled off the line at the Lordstown, Ohio assembly plant and immediately captured the hearts of muscle car mad gearheads, to the tune of selling more than 82,000 units in the first year.

A Ken Block Hoonigan Mechanic Builds His Dream Firebird
Gregg Hamilton’s day job involves building and tuning cars for Ken Block. What does he do when he has time off from work? He builds and tunes his 1979 Pontiac Trans Am, of course.

As a child of the ’80s, I have very fond memories of all the car shows I got to watch growing up. There was the Dukes of Hazzard, Starsky and Hutch, and Knight Rider to name a few.
