If you can stuff a hemi in a Gremlin, why not? I like it, always liked the 2nd gen Camaros.

Nothing like the sound of turbo charged i6 a perfect engine choice . I plan on doing a supra power plant in a 1960 f100 kit.

Great build. Nice stance, awesome paint, & cool wheels. As for the motor, not my cup of tea but if you like it, that's all that counts.

Very cool. Great paint. I love the engine too - nice details and fit.

I don't know why people have qualms about cross-brand engine swaps. Why not put a powerful, cool looking engine in a cool looking car? Forget where it comes from, judge it based on looks and performance. Well, performance is kind of hard for a model, but perceived performance, I guess.

It's not that I don't like these engine swaps,it's just they make things awkward . Imagine you saw a Toyota Celica with a 351 Cleveland in it, Might be cool but it sure is weird.
