That was without a google too. I googled it after I posted though. I have been a fan of those little cars since I was a kid. You should see the transmission in that car, it looks like a 1/3 or 1/4 scale 39 Ford. The motor is 45 CI as I remember.

The exhaust pipe is about 3/4" tube, it's hilarious.

I have to think a little about my question.

I think both, but yes you got it.

It's your floor John. I have to say when looking up a photo to post of this engineering marvel I was blown away to see that they put the aluminum block Buicks in these Pontiacs! I didn't know that, or I had forgotten. Very interesting!

Pontiac Tempest "Sprint" six cylinder. Being my first two cars were inline sixes I have always been a big fan. One of these four speed four barrel Sprints was my dream car for years.

Don't you remember? You to see them advertised in car mags, comic books and I think the Monkey Wards catalog. Picture of a Jeep Jitney with a fringed top and the words " Clang Clang" The ad was right next to the one for a Ahooogaaa Horn. Just above the ad for a Wolf Whistle complete with a cartoon wolf with shifty eyes and extended lips. Oh yea, you could make extra money selling Clovite. I always wondered what the heck Clovite was? It was only yesterday.

Here you guys go.
Who made it and what year?
