  • Almost bought one in 84; ended up with an RX-2 RE coupe. Didn’t buy the Pontiac because of parts availability for the exotic (for 60s GM, anyway) six. It did sound great, though (much nicer than the chainsaw noises the Mazda made, although the money I made from gullible Camaro drivers made up for it).

    • RX-2 is a pretty cool car. But yeah I can see why you didn't get the Sprint. It was probably really hard to find a replacement belt for the cam.

    • By 84, I think it was hard to get anything for that engine. GM has always been bad about parts availability for obsolete vehicles, and the OHC six never had a real aftermarket support system.

  • Inline 6, 4 barrel carb, 4 speed, 3:56 final drive was a solid combo, decent power and light! Not to mention a hell of a collectors car!!

    • They don't come up for sale very often. There is one in Kentucky for sale. The guy is asking $15,000 and it does need some work but it looks pretty solid.

  • They had inline 6 motor but were affordable, fuel efficient and gorgeous!

    • Well they cost about the same as the V8 so most people opted for that. But I'm glad that whoever bought the six did. They're very rare but they're pretty light and they handle really well.
