Blew up the 318 in my 66 Dodge Coronet-ooops! Wrecked my 76 Jeep CJ-7 HT the day after I got it out of the shop it had been in for 2 months, was tired of jacking with it and regretably sold it. Now I've got 2 classic (soon to be) cars. The first is a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am 4-door 4cyl, big pimpin' I know, hold your applause. The other which I hate to say I will only have until January but this is the second of these models I've leased and have loved both of them. 2008 Pontiac G6 GXP Street Edition Coupe 3.6 DOHC, 6-speed A/T, black chrome wheels, all the bells and whistles. I will hate to let this car go and I'm not sure what to lease from GM next, I work at a Buick GMC formerly Pontiac dealer. Buick may be getting a new Regal out later this year with a 4 cyl. just don't know if it appeals to me. The Chevrolet cars aren't exciting either. I'm gonna miss Pontiac excitement.

Correction: 20 mpg, just like the 1971 VW Transporter that I drove for twenty-six years before retiring it. I know a little about poor and lacking emissions controls.

I'm not a GM guy at all, but, Buick has been putting out some cool stuff in recent years. A lot of people have wrote them off, they are a sleeper entity in the car world.

I meant to reply to you sooner but got a bit distracted (bought a motorcycle).
Anyway, we have a dealer in town who kind of specializes in classics and muscle cars. Found a couple for you on his web site.
Not a Ford, but pretty cool -- 1966 Chevy II SS Nova
1964 1/2 Mustang
Or if you prefer more of a project car, 1974 V-8 Ford Maverick
Or, if you just want something to smoke the rice burners on the street, 1955 Chevy Pro-Street

I want to get a '76 Gran Torino and paint it like in Starsky and Hutch. I'd also like a '76 Camero. My dad had one and I saw a pic once. That is a BEAUTIFUL car.
