When I built my first circle track car I was very 'budget concious' (poor) at the time and decided to build a $50 Hyundai Pony.It was Hyundai's first car in North America, and was a biodegradeable POS, but ran forever. One day at a swap meet I saw a V8 powered Plymouth Arrow GT for sale along with all the leftovers from the conversion. Alot of the parts looked strangely familiar. One conversation led to another and I discovered that the Pony was virtually identical to the Arrow, right down to the Mitsu name on many of the parts. It wasn't long before I tracked down lots of cheap leftover race parts from the old mini mod series that they dominated in the 70's.
I believe the Plymouth Arrow is some sort of Lancer model... Right?

The Firearrow is similar to the Colt C10. In fact, they share the same engine, the G32B. IIRC the Firearrow had the NA version while the Colt obviously had the turbo. However, nice to know that the Firearrow and Pony/Excel and therefore the Colts are so similar and a Firearrow can house a V8... :wink:
