    Here's my daily driver. I guess you can say it's rare in 2021. Sees north of 5k rpm on a daily basis. Needs work on the secondary squirters.

      I love the vibe except for the spoiler. What is with that gigantic gas tank? Man....That looks huge!

      Nearest town to me is 60 miles, 100 for the larger city.
      If I want to go anywhere other than my little town I need a big gas tank. It's a 32 gallon out of a dodge van.
      Don't have a superbird, so why not. Better than looking at metal in the garage. Stick it on a car. Wing originally came from the blackbird state patrol car.

        Here is another beater. Drive it to work a few times a week now. It's on the job site and even has wood on the trunk.
        Basic daily driver.

          So this gas tank out of a van works with fuel gauge in car? Talk about Mad Max style engineering!!:thumbsup:

          As long as you use the gauge that came with the tank, it should work. If I recall correctly the Vans around 76' came with a 28 gal. tank(metal), but the option was a 36 gal. tank(plastic), as in the photo. I had a 72' van and tried to install a 36 gal. one, but it would not fit. had to keep the smaller one. The 340 I had in it sucked the tank dry often. Vacations were a bummer.

            Your correct. It was a 36. Just put 34 gallons in it.
            The gauges are aftermarket.
            Fuel sending unit is the stock one that was on the van.
            The trunk was basically rotted in the spare tire holding area so....
            no more stopping at every gas station.
