dinger - For me, it's usually the other way around. My wife usually says, "Why would you put that in the 36." Then again, she questions all of my great ideas. You should have seen the look I got when I told her about my brother and my idea about the go-cart with the Mazda engine!

I agree with the dislike of the Monaro, or Australian GTO. I have to say a LOT of Pontiac enthusiasts are unhappy with it! The car is supposed to be a performer though. LS1 with a 6 speed and rear wheel should be pretty fast. Personally, I am disappointed to see the Camaro/Firebirds go. I have a 69 Firebird and a 2002 Trans Am. Looking at the two side by side you can see a lot of similarities between the two. I hope they take some of the old styling aspects to the new platform, too. Oh, they'll be back........back with a vengeance....

My wife has been pretty cool about the 36, the hemi sounded good to her until I told her it would probably cost about 10 grand for a new set up like the new trucks have, then it wasn't such a great idea anymore.
