This was going to be Pontiac’s Jag XKE competitor. The somewhat awkward blister on the hood is there to clear the SOHC inline six. That was an engine that Pontiac was playing with at the time, and would offer in the Firebird and Tempest (I think) for a couple of years.
I’d like to take the opportunity to point out that the very same dealer offering this Solstice has another rare Pontiac for sale—that being John Z’s 1964 Banshee prototype.
Here’s something for you - FCA’s bringing the Neon name back for 2019 with a Tipo-based car hecho’d en Mexico. I know, mind blown, right?
The more import question is: why don’t all cars have them?
Well done, my good man.
I’ve never seen a car yard with so much grass.
There were about 30 of them in the yard, but they’re so common there these days that I didn’t bother snapping pictures of them.
Mmmm... I’ll have to have a moment alone now.
Considering how self destructive the 924 dashboard was, it could have just fallen apart.
Most of the BMWs that I see at the lots near me are the old E28 528e or big ‘ol E38 7-series. It seems like there’s still enough of them around at pennies on the pound prices that I don’t feel too bad about seeing them in the yard.
Geez, the only thing you could carry in that C7-amino is a few sheets of Kleenex. I’m not sure that was the best rebuke to today’s C3.
This kind of minutiae fascinates me.
I get contacted by the sellers on occasion, but I don’t ever reach out to them.
My daughter and I were discussing this inscrutable puzzle this AM. A funny thing, the Rebus tool also allows the to answer to be ONE TWO THREE which will solve the puzzle. The issue I had with it was Twopac or 2pac when accurately it should have been Tupac (R.I.P.).
You know, funny thing. There appears to be a rag stuffed down next to the distrinbutor. I hadn’t noticed that before but wonder why they didn’t remove that to take the engine shot. WHAT ELSE DID THEY FORGET?!
Here’s the deal - which you probably already know - even the rubber baby buggy MGBs are commanding $5K -$8K these days. Chrome bumper cars are in the mid teens on up if they’re nice.
Waah-waah *Sad English Horn*
Why would someone - anyone - marry an individual who doesn’t like dogs? What’s next, wedding someone who doesn’t think Grapenuts are terrible?
I always want Brewer to go back to the original owner at the end of each episode and crow something like “Oi mate, I made thirty two quid on your old heap, you daft git!”
What are you talking about? It’s an LSC not something that everytime you open the door a dozen or so clowns tumble out of.
