DETROIT - General Motors Co recalled 511,528 Chevrolet Camaros on Friday for an ignition switch problem similar to the defect linked to at least 13 deaths in Chevrolet Cobalts and other models.
GM said it was aware of minor accidents but no fatalities from the Camaro, a sporty two-door car. It said the Camaro switch defect differed from the problem in the Cobalts, but a consumer advocate said GM still should have recalled the Camaros sooner.
GM said a driver's knee could bump the Camaro key fob and move the ignition switch out of the "run" position, causing the engine to shut off.

That is real sad what happened with your Firebird. Loved them until the new body style of the mid 90s. Also, it is not uncommon for Pontiacs to have SERIOUS electrical problems. I've helped more than my fair share of friends rewire their Grand Prix's and Bonneville's when their brakes fail - who even thought that was a great idea to begin with to have an electrical system control brakes?
Great bodies but unless you are gonna rebuild it from scratch not worth it IMHO. Love the fact you offered to rent a racing track to prove the defectiveness and they refused to come, ha ha ha. Had that happen with a custom built Ford Taurus I had from the factory for drag racing. Now I will say this for a Ford, when they run they run damn great, but when they hit about 85K (if you are lucky enough to keep it that long) they are either Found On Road Dead or Fix Or Repair Daily.
