        dark times, but making a pontiac engine fast is stupid easy.

        the movie car was a 1976 trans am with a 77 nose and a 454 chevy engine because the only mechanic they could afford had no idea how to work on pontiacs

          Movie car had a Ls 6 litre turbo with sloppy stage II cam. Pulled it from a work van with 289k on the clock.

      skylines didn't have AWD in that time period, so they wouldn't even be worth discussing.

        And Pontiacs had AWD?

          No, but anything would be faster than a skyline without AWD.

      This POS would have made less than 100hp under U.S. emission regulations. Why do you think it never sold here?

        we did actually get the R30 as an infiniti m30
        the skyline series' general problem is mostly that it is a floppy piece of shit chassis and doesn't have a hope of meeting us crash standards without the kind of reinforcement that would kill its performance and price advantage.
        a serious mod people do to the R30 coupes is cut out the floorpan and weld in the usdm M30s stiffer 4-dr sheet metal to increase the torsional rigidity
        I get R30 and kenmeri are 10 years apart but still. Nissan domestic market sports cars are fricking floppy deathtraps

          AWD was the saving grace of the skyline. there's no way those cars were ever going to match 3 series BMWs or even ford fox body cars without some kind of mechanical advantage.

          M30 was the F31 Leopard which shares some components with the R31 and C32 Laurel.

    To be fair at least it wasn't the Turbo Trans Am that they used in the sequel. Which had 205 hp, despite it having a turbo.

      They swapped big blocks into the jump cars because the 200 hp was not enough to clear any kind of gap.

    So much bullshit about the bandit Firebird.
    >4 identical cars used for the movie.
    >all 4 supplied directly from pontiac
    >all 4 were production line '77 models
    >all 4 were 400 c.i.
    >3 were completely destroyed during filming
    >last car no longer ran and had to be pushed into the camera shots to film the final scenes.

    The "76 with a 77 nose" was a magazine car that Burt saw and was not involved directly with the movie.

      yeah the 76 with a 77 front was done by pontiac for a promo brochure because the 77 hadn't gone into production yet. the bandit car was originally going to be a charger until burt saw the brochure
