It's a decidely un-helpful canoe. The 1984 Pontiac Sunbird is based on the FWD J-Body and shares no parts with the 1980 model.

I doubt they will be in business for long. Canoe sales.

He's trying.

Seeing them out of the car, they look out of control. In the car they make more sense.

These are the headers that came with the car. Sold for $125.

IF this becomes a challenge car, it is closing in on being sold down and the steering wheel is still on the car. I did advertise it on the H-body forum. The guy who bought the headers want to buy the rear and other parts.

planning to use a large volume shallow pan.

In order to do so, the cross member was clearance, factory weld ground and re-welded, and gusseted with heavier gage plate.
