Was really into Smokey and the Bandit. So my first brand new car was a 1978 Black with Phoenix and shaker on hood.
I bought it with just the bare essentials. No A/C, etc.
400 T/A engine with Hurst shifter on the floor. Ripped out cats and put dual exhaust in. Then took that fake bs shaker on the hood, bored out the plastic and put butter-fly in. If a bird flew past, that bugger would suck it in, lmao.
Prob with those cars were undersized crucial parts. Undersized starter, undersize rear diff., etc.
I was constantly replacing them including fly wheels.
Pontiac DID have the great ideas, but they cut corners too much.
Later bought an '87 that was just as big a headache. Major injector problems. Engine blew doing 30 miles an hour looking for a place to fish on a Sunday. Piston came out one side of block, cut right across oil pan and out the other side of block with a hole the size of a soft ball . Loved Night Rider. Created the scanning lights and built one of the first radar jammers installed behind grill. Pissed off a lot of cops and people with it, lmao.
Sadly, got rid of it and said no more! Was fun while it lasted.
