I'm sorry about my sig... I didn't realise, its my own fault for not reading the forum rules.

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.

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.

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)
