the 77 monza mirage , factory v-8 4 spd car . and yep thats the way they looked !
the 76 cosworth vega , twim cam , stainless steel header , fuel injection ( one of the first american car to use it ) forge pistons , steel crankshaft . all factory . it was quite a potent performing engine they just put it in the wrong vehicle . cost back in 1976 ? $8000.00 . guess thats why they sold so few ... at one point i had three of them ! btw the engine shot was before a pre teardown shot

That Aston-Martin and that Firebird look NICE!

A couple of off-beat cars I've always liked were VWs. (I used to be a huge VW fan until their quality went down the toilet over the last decade. Still like the design of the cars, but I HATE the company! (Ask me about my 2001 Turbo Beetle....)

Here's a Type 3 Karmann Ghia and a Type 3 "Notchback".

And underneath the VWs, an American version of the same thing: Corvair Monza.
