…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Pontiac LeSupra?

Pontiac LeSupra

Sure, they did it in 3 Fast 3 Furious, but no one actually puts a new engine into old muscle; do they?

Well apparently they do, because the ’72 Pontiac LeMans that you see here is powered by none other than a 1991 Toyota Supra 7M-GTE 3.0 Litre 24V Turbo motor.

Apparently the car was basically a total loss when it was purchased at auction, so it’s not like they chopped up some pristine iron to make this creation, but I’m still not sure if I can wrap my head around how they decided that this was their best bet for power.

I guess if the go pedal works though, it doesn’t exactly matter what it’s connected to.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Supra-LeMans?

Supra-LeMans

So you’re living in Germany, you’ve been given a slightly beat up 1972 Pontiac LeMans as part of a video game promotion, and you have access to a turbo’d Mark III Supra engine. What do you do? You combine the two of course.

Ralf Becker is the man behind this mash-up monster, and though it’s in rough project form right now, it’s not hard to imagine the potential. Redline burnouts and blow-off valves anyone?
