I always thought it was weird those existed, how was that 6, where they American engines? I know where one of those cars is in a boneyard.
engine was fine... basicly a chevy250 inline with a ohc set up on it.. they are different enough to not be able to drop the Pontiac head on the chevy and go.. but the ohc Pontiac was a beancounter build/designed limited.. It made great power.. for what it was.. I'd like another.. I'd add a turbo and efi.. A guy on an other forum is doing this now...
The Pontiac OHC 6 was a great little engine that was underappreciated at it's time. The Sprint 6 high output version even had a 4 barrel carb, but everyone wanted a V8 back then. Had the OHC 6 stayed in production until the Arab Oil Embargo in the 70's, it could have found renewed life as a more economical performance engine. So much potential, but making power with a simple OHV V8 was easier and cheaper.

The GMC is a recent purchase so I could retire the TA from daily driver duties. I was racking the miles up on it WAY too fast. Now I can spend some time to refresh the TA a bit and enjoy it for pleasure driving. And I no longer have to risk driving it in Winter weather.
The Mercury was my dad's. I inherited it when he passed back in 2002. I've tried to keep it running, but when the fuel pump quit I've just parked it and it's just taken up space since then. I'm thinking it's time to finally part with it.
And then there's the Fiero. I've got a lot of history with that car. Bought it in 2001. It was my daily driver for many years, but the last 2 years it's mostly just sat in the driveway. Too many cars and not enough time. I'm reluctantly thinking it may be time to sell it as well. I don't really want to let it go, but I can't bear the idea of it sitting and rotting away and would rather someone else enjoy it. It seems all my "car" time gets devoted to the TA these days anyway and I barely have enough time to do what I want with it.
Some past rides included; '69 Firebird 350. My first car I bought in High School, slinging a LOT of burgers at McDonald's to pay for it. '72 Pontiac Trans Am. Bought it shortly after graduating from Community College with my first real full time income. '87 Buick Grand National. My first new car. Bought it in the Fall of 1987, right after the stock market crash.
I had both the '69 and '72 at the same time. I sold the '69 and used the money from it as a down payment on the GN. Both the '72 TA and GN got sold when I went back to school to study Mechanical Engineering at NC State.

1993 Dodge Spirit 2.5L TBI - Still own, but it's a project. I'll divulge plans once its completed which I hope will be in time for my HS reunion. Let's just say it no longer has the engine or trans it came with. 1992 Dodge Spirit R/T - Still own. 107k miles, near mint condition. Not selling, hopefully ever. 1989 Ford Festiva - Bought as cheap economical transportation, but unfortunately it died so I sold it to a guy who was going to turn it into a SHOgun. Not sure if he followed through on that. 1966 Ford Mustang C-code Convertible - Still own. Car is #s matching and was built with the one year only Emberglow exterior color option. It's a long term project that I doubt I will ever get to. I've estimated it will take about 25-30k in parts and labor to restore. Am open to selling. 2000 Buick Century - Sold to my brother who drove it until last year when it was scrapped. I once dreamed of dropping in a 3800sc, never was serious about it though. 1987 Pontiac Fiero GT - Still own. Finishing up a 3.4L engine swap. 2005 Chevy Cobalt LS sedan - My wife bought brand new off the lot. Drove it until last year when the transmission went out. It doesn't meet our needs or family size anymore so looking to sell. 2010 Dodge Charger SXT AWD - My daily driver. 2014 Chrysler Town and Country - My wife's daily driver.
1957 Corvette with 283 engine and 270hp (wrecked and sold for parts in 1959 or early 1960)
270 HP? Was that a non-Fuelie? My dad has a 57 that he bought when he got back from Vietnam for $900.00. It's sitting in storage now, with a LONG way to go before seeing the road. I rally want to frame swap it, and completely upgrade it mechanically. Wanting to go for the Pro-Touring/Resto-Mod thing. I have the LS1 and T-56 from my 2001 Z28 that I plan to put into it. It's an LS6 block and intake, need the LS6 heads though, and I have a cam, that I can throw in, and give it a little over 400 RWHP. The original got the 57 is long gone. It was used as a race car for a time.
Some of these lists make me sick with jealousy. I'm at work, so I can't post pics of the vehicles I do actually have pics of, but here is my short list anyway.
94 GMC Sonoma SLS Ext. Cab - Traded for 97 Camaro 97 Camaro RS (the REAL Rally Sport with the ground effects, not the basic ass Camaro everyone wants to CALL an RS) - Traded 01 Camaro Z28 - Totalled 93 Chevrolet 1500 Reg. cab Stepside - Sold 88 Mustang GT - Totalled and then stolen 07 Suzuki Hayabusa - Traded for 96 Tahoe 10 Jeep Wrangler Sport (2 door) - Currently own 96 Chevrolet Tahoe Z71 (2 door) - Currently own 87 Pontiac Fiero Base - Currently own
From the beginning: 1953 Dodge 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 Four door HARDTOP (never seen another one) 1969 Torino Cobra 428 (4 speed, 4.10 positrac, factory oil cooler) 1964 Rambler American (two door, bucket seats, console) 1970 Datsun 1200 1951 Ford F-1 (flathead V8, my first total restoration 1975) 1970 LS6 SS 454 El Camino (the king of axle tramp, would lift both rear tires off the ground. Traded the F-1 for it.) 1976 Firebird 1978 Fairmont (Il Quatraporte Azul de Amor -- The Blue Four Door of Love. Traded a rubber dinghy for it. Got a wife out of the deal.) 1988 Dodge Shadow Convertible 199? Chrysler LHS 199? Mercedes 300E (what a piece of expensive junk. I danced in the street when it drove off with the new owner heading for Columbia, South America) 1989 Dodge Daytona (paid $2, had new paint, new tires and a blown freeze plug. Put in a rubber plug and drove it 4 years before I gave it to my daughter.) 1987 (I think. Last year of American Motors Jeeps) Grand Wagoneer 1973 Jeep Commando (Most dependable car I've owned. 15 years and it has NEVER failed me. Still have it.) 1995 Ford Probe GT (Twice national winner at Probe Owners meeting for Factory Stock.) 1995 Cadillac Eldorado (Great car! Gave it to my sister) 1995 Jaguar XJ6 (had to buy the Eldorado to get the Jag, Long story, luscious car. Still have it. 1986 Fiero SE
Thinking about another Grand Waggy. So cool. Have the surfboards to go on top.
