    Funny thing is the slant 6 was a chrysler engine and they were referring it to a trans am that had a 461ci engine (v8).

    The slant-six was a beautiful thing to behold (for its time and place).

    I had one in my first car, a 1971 Plymouth Scamp (two-door version of the Valiant or, if you prefer, the Plymouth-badged version of the Dodge Swinger). 225 cid of almost unkillable goodness. Easy to work on, as well, with one exception, setting the points: the distributor was on the downslope side of the block, up against the firewall and near the mounting point for the A-arm on the suspension, so it was very difficult to both have your hands down there and see what you were doing at the same time. Still, I would love to have another one ('tho I'd probably replace it with a 318 or 340 this time around).

    See thats what i love about my jeep. The only thing that is hard to work on is the drivtrain because of the heavy skids in the way. Granted a few bolts and its easy access, but doing skids alone on your back is not a fun adventure.

    Heck, I had a friend in high-school who had a 50s era Chevy pickup with an inline 6 - you could stand inside the engine compartment, with your feet on the ground below, when you were working on that thing (best to make sure it was turned off first, though;)).

    Lol. My dad has a 69 cutlass that you can stand in. The only reason is because he has a small block olds 350 in it. I love driving it, totally different from my and awd eagle talon.

    Yeah it was, and that makes for a hard parts find when I need something. Im just hoping it will hold up til I can do everything at once.
