No prizes for subtlety for this Pontiac Tempest.

This is one of those cars theat you'll never be able to sneak home in, but that's the whole point.

Close to a couple of years ago we did a feature on the long term releationship Dan had with his Pontiac Tempest. It was one of those classic stories where he built and raced the thing, then had to sell it when his priorities changed and life took over his wallet.

Move on some decades and he was in a position to buy it back and have a play with it again.

Now it's on the market. See our background story, with video, from 2015.

Meanwhile, here's what he's saying about the car:

1965 Pontiac Tempest drag car. 1980s magazine queen. Was my daily driver. As seen in the issue #372 from February 2015. Asking $35,000 with a brand new 454. Fresh everything. New Edelbrock aluminium heads. All the good gear. Fresh fully manualised Powerglide with turbo input and TCE converter. Everything else refer to the magazine article. Or phone David on 0487 894 291 for more info.
