Noels car is running a 7.5 engine. He has done it over 5 years, in his spare time. Here are some pics of it when he first got it. Sorry they are not great pics. :ohcrap:

Eh looks good from the windsheild back. I dont like the grill with its pointyness. flaten it n itll be good for me atleast. But of course, its not my car.

posted by  sandlercd_22

That shape is stock. Flattening it would look like the Chevelle it was based on.

Here's a completely stock Skylark, from a slightly different angle. It's the kind of styling that makes classic '60s American muscle desireable.

Dude, you are a dudess, with a fine ass car :laughing:

And wouldnt you know it, the Chevelle is my dream car.

posted by  sandlercd_22

Yeah, I've noticed that you have a fairly narrow range of likes, and anything outside that seems to be pretty much crap to you.

Sad, really, the lack of appreciation people seem to want to have anymore.

4 divisions of GM at the time had variations on that A body chassis. The Pontiac one was the Tempest/GTO which was also very pointy...

But than agian, my first musclecar, and a car I loved, was a '71 Torino GT 429, which is even pointier yet... (kind of like this one)

Oh god that GTO is damn sexy, and I wish that I could have been a teenager in your era Chris, all those famous and infamous muscle cars, damn, a 71 Torino, let me just speak for everyone and say you lucky bastard :laughing:

I was born in 88 and i own a 73 nova. Why do you need to live in the era to enjoy it. And im about to invest in another nova. I think the guys got a lincoln continental im definetly interested in. I love mafia looking cars. GTO= awsome. I love the GTO its just not as much of a definded point in the grill.

posted by  sandlercd_22

I was born in 84 and I didn't get one

posted by  99integra

Well go buy one than.

posted by  sandlercd_22

OMG, you retarded? I already have 4 cars and with gas prices like this it would be hard

posted by  99integra

Well, living in the era had the advantage that the cars were simply used cars. And there were still a lot of them available. We didn't have to settle for a 4 door later Nova, as a '69 SS396 could be had cheap. I ended up owning 3 Mustang fastbacks, including a '70 Mach 1 and a '70 BOSS 302. I've had a Trans Am, a Dodge Charger, a Pontiac Ventura (the Pontiac nova), and a '66 Chevelle SS w/454 (not the stock engine)

posted by  ChrisV

I love you :laughing:

posted by  99integra

No im not retarded. Im not a psychic. how was i supposed to know you had that many cars already. I was being a smartass.
