The 5M-GE 2.8-liter DOHC inline-six was rated at 161 horsepower and 169 lb-ft of torque. Power is channeled to the rear wheels via a console-shifted four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive.

Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in the Southwest.
