If you’re a Pontiac fan you’d already have cried your tears about the brand’s death. But today there’s something to smile about, as a new to market classic Pontiac GTO, Firebird, Trans Am, and a Holden Commodore HSV GTS-R are all on sale.
These enviable selection of cars comes from the personal collection of Jim Wangers, who was Pontiac’s chief marketing manager during the brand’s glory days of muscle cars, sportscars and a favourable position right behind Chevrolet in General Motors’ brand line-up. With that history the 10 machines for sale are expected to be excellent examples of the breed.
First car up is a 1965 GTO Sport Coupe, this car represents the second year of the model’s existence and stands as a tribute to the early muscle car. If you’re after drop-top motoring there’s a 1966 Goat also for sale. Also available are two Carousel Red GTO Judges from 1969.
If you prefer the F-body you can choose from a first-year 1967 Firebird, a very rare 1969 Trans Am, a 1979 Trans Am 10th Anniversary car with less than 100 miles on the odometer, a 20th Anniversary Trans Am with the turbocharged V6 engine from the Buick Grand National from 1989 and finally, a white and blue 30th Anniversary Trans Am convertible.
Finally, hiding away in Wangers collection is some Aussie muscle in the form of a 2000 Holden Commodore HSV GTS-R, which Wangers has described as “the very car that inspired Bob Lutz to seek from Holden a car for U.S. buyers — the ’04 Pontiac GTO.”
