    love the color! 6-cyl... is it a Canadian Pontiac? Just seems odd that someone would throw a 6 in what was a V8 car originally that's all.

    Its an American Pontiac.. not Canadian. The engine is out of a mid 60's chevy... i have told that many years ago the original engine was pulled out and put into a Hot rod.

    I think that's a great power plant to have in there. An economical hot rod is a great idea and with gas prices what they are... hey.... I may look for the same power plant to put in one of my rides.

    Very nice. I liked both paint schemes! The gold is very cool. Nice ride!

    Thanks man, Its not a factory 6, The 6 is in it because in Australia for the first 4 years when your on the road you cant drive V8,turbo or supercharged cars. So for now the 6 will stay. Your car will look mad chopped. be sure to send me photos of it would love to chop mine later on
