I just got back from the Isanti Weekly Car Show in Isanti, MN. It is a fun little car show. I did get some pictures, not as many as I would have liked though since the camera batteries were low and it died on me.
I did get the pictures of almost all the cars I wanted though so that is good. I started with the muscle cars, so that is good.
This one has a 440 swapped into it with a 4 speed. Very clean. I also love the color. I would say this is number two on my favorite cars list, after the 68-69 Charger.
I like this car because in high school I had a similar car, a 1981 Grand Prix. This ones has a Pontiac V-8 in it, I am assuming a 301.
The one I had was on it’s third engine. It has started life with a 3.8 V6. Dad had enough of it’s lack of power, and put in a warmed over 400 Pontiac in it. I was not old enough to drive it, but I remember thinking how fast it was riding in it. When I got it, it had a 350 Olds 4 barrel in it. While not in the muscle car league, in retrospect, maybe more than a high school guy should have had.
There was also a very nice looking 67 Camaro
And while not a muscle car, old pickups do have a certain appeal
There is an appeal to the shape of these old trucks. And it would make a fun parts hauler.
Next time I need to make sure the camera has fresh batteries, but it was still a fun time.
