Sorry for double post -

Didn't know about the GM trannys, so keep replacement (or conversion to manual) costs in mind, if it is a GM transmission.

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's meant to be.

If not, point & laugh when it flies into a woodchipper.

GM Trannys??



And yeah, it'd just be a challenge to get ahold of a 5 speed. No idea if they even amde them for this specific car, but surely another one could be mated with little to no work. Like Honda's, lol.

lolnoty.

Thanks for the link, the TB and WP could be a problem. Every 50K miles? Geez. I might try to look for something a tad newer.

Are there any Ford Mustangs for the same price? Those cars really rock.

But seriously, hate to see someone spend a bunch of money without taking a good look first.

I think I know where there's a '74 bronco frame.....

























GOTCHA! :bleh:

Pontiac = Chevy.
The FWD Pontiacs mostly use Buick V-6s

Lost respect for them when they quit using their own engines. The Pontiac 400 was The best engine GM ever build.

Biggest bone head move since Ford quit building the 351/400 Claeveland.

Too bad you don't work on 'em, you could probably find a sweet '70s Trans-Am to restore behind some barn in your neck of
the woods.

Too bad you don't live closer, I'd give you a deal on a '72 Galaxie (2-door).

The BMW looks good on paper, bet if everybody's got one....

What style are you looking for?

Car that kinda have.. class to them, mid sized sedans/coupes. I like Chrysler Sebrings, but I've heard bad things about them. :/

Chrysler Sebrings were built by Mitsubishi, if that make any difference.

You could look for a 2-door Volare (late '70s). They're fairly cheap, easy to fix & don't look bad. If they need front end work
you could run into some costs but the engines (especially the slant 6) run forever. Obviously, rust is an issue.

Gotta go (My kid's here), back later.
