    The Sundance is not as likeable to me although definitely interesting and odd....Suby did make a sedan version of the outback for a couple years that was similar on one level, but certainly not the convertible aspect....kinda liking that sundance the more I look at it....

    Back In NY a neighbor had a factory built 2 door 4wd dodge shadow. Oh if only if were a turbo 2.2 with a manual.
    But a friend's mom had a banana yellow Subaru baja 2.5 turbo with a 5 speed.
    There is a 5 speed dodge rampage rotting in a field 20min from me if anyone wants to save it. :whistle:

    I thought the v6 and v8 Northstar had the same bellhousing pattern (small gm metric) as the duke? Maybe I'm thinking the metric supercharged gm 3800

    My oldest brother and his wife had a 4 door Eagle for years. That was the family car when they were raising their kids. 232 six with an automatic, that thing ran forever! Other than routine mantenance, it never needed anything.

    Interesting that you bring up the Sundancer. Jack Griffith did these conversions later when he lived in Ft. Lauderdale, as well as the Toyota Celica Sunchasers (see his common theme in names?). I know of Jack Griffith from his earlier years when he was in Long Island in the 1960s. He took a TVR Grantura (a tiny British tube-frame fiberglass sports car) and dropped Ford HiPo 289s in them, creating the Griffith. These were not as popular as Carrol Shelby's AC Ace, turned Cobra, but were more potent, up until Shelby started using the 427. The Griffith could top 150 mph if you were bold enough to try, and they have horrible brakes. The Griffiths were very successful in class racing, but not that many were made. I've driven these things, and they are crazy (especially trying to get in or out of!).
    An original Griffith is out of my budget, so I'm building mine from a TVR Vixen, nearly the same chassis and body.
    Jack Griffith is also known as founder of the annual Amelia Island Concours show in north Florida.

    It reminds me of a new Subaru Crosstrek

    My boy had a wagon. The front axle bolted to the engine.
