Well, first off, are you sweet today or Bad?
Second I thought you just joined to aggrivate the
founder? Thats how I remember you saying it. Last what
would you like to learn about cars? I could go on for
hours about hbodys or any other make, well except for
Ford, My talk about those would turn negative in a
hurry! LOL

i am a little of both today, probably more bad
then sweet.(at least that is the kind of mood i'm in
today) i did join to aggravate the founder, but as long
as i'm in this club i might as well learn something.
and just what is wrong with fords? i don't think they
are the best in the world but i am not totally
against them. anyways, i have brutally beaten up the
founder for bad talk about fords. :) i don't care what i
learn, as long as i learn something.

Skyhawk, Oldsmobile Starfire, Pontiac Sunbird, and oh yeah

Give me a D
Give me a
Y

<<"...but what the hell is an
Hbody?">>

Ok, here is the "official" answer to that question,
borrowed from our Hbody FAQ. Are you sitting down?.....
spit your gum out!... school is in session!
*smile*

The H-body was GM's subcompact car for the seventies,
sold in six
different models: Chevrolet Vega and
Monza, Pontiac Astre and
Sunbird, Buick Skyhawk, and
Oldsmobile Starfire.

Each model has a 4, 6, or
8-cylinder engine in the front and a solid
rear axle to
move the car. All bodies are of unit-body
construction
(no separate frame). All styles have four seats, two
doors, and are
available in notchback, hatchback, or
wagon forms (depending on
brand). There are economy
and performace-tuned models.

The line was
replaced in the early eighties by the
transverse
front-engined front wheel drive GM J-Body (Chevrolet
Cavalier,
Pontiac Sunbird, etc.).

The H-Bodies were
developed by GM Lead Engineer Ed Cole,
who also
developed the Corvair and Fiero. The Vega was
designed
with a Chevy Small Block V8 in mind, but the Corvette
group
protested enough to kill that option.

H is the
internal code GM used to identify the car platform.
For
example, some other codes are F for the Camaro and
Firebird, P for
the Fiero, Y for the Corvette, G for the
RWD Monte Carlo and
Grand Prix, and so on. Letter
codes change and get reused. Most
recently, H was
used for the large FWD platform used by the
Pontiac
Bonneville and Buick LeSabre.

Ok..... got all that?!
;-)

mabey this will help your learning,
GM made
the monza (spyder especially)
to compete against
the ford new small
mustang (AKA Mustang II )


If you look at them from the side
you`ll notice
lots of similarities
size gross
shape....

Ken,
maybee you could justify me on this one..
i`m
99% sure of that maybee you got more
infos...


For the similarities don`t get me wrong...
i
used to have a girlfriend whit one of those
pinto
looking mustangs and i can tell you
when i was a bit
far from the cars they were
very similar
looking

BTW,
Those mustangs were very small
compare
to GM ``big`` camaros so they had to have a

smaller sports car

My 2 cents........ ( well
maybee 1/2 US cent...)

Denis
