Sayin' howdy from Canada. Good work preserving the brand on this forum! I've gotten re-interested in Iron Indians since their discontinue, having had a long personal history with them. Lemme see now:

Dad had a '48 Silver Streak Sedan Delivery till about '60; In '58-'60 we also had a 'Merican '50 torpedo back broke down and sittin' in the bushes for a while- that's where I learned to kiss a GURL

Then Dad had the '52 sedan, not for long (valves went); Then the '58 Strato-Chief (Canadian);

In '64 I got a '54 4 dr- my first car- brush painted by the prev. owner.

Then I was Pontiac deprived till my bro's '74 TA w/ 400. And personally deprived till '81 with a FIrebird Esprit T-top, then in '03 when we got the '02 GP, with the 3.1. Great mileage- 37 Imp which is about 20% lower in US gal.

More later!

Thanks, everyone! Nice to be made welcome.. I've been on some forums in the past, was met with stony silence. Don't remember which one they were now- imagine that ;-)

There was a question of pics.. I have some that I gotta scan first- in fact I have a lifetime's worth of pics that, shall we say, need to be converted from analog to digital. 3 large storage bins, in fact!

My latest car show was up here in Edmonton, at the Iron Indians Car Club, and it kinda helped re-light the fire.. They have some nice stuff around here in spite of our- ahem- seasonal approach to car shows! One guy had a '00 GP GTP with boosted blower that put out over 400 hp of tire smoke- loved it.. Lots of blue engines there too. Oldest was a '39. Couple G8 GTP's too; one blown, one v8. Niiiice.

I think you mean G8 GXP. :lol:

Basically you had three trims with those, base had the LY7 3.6L DOHC V6, GT had the 6.0L OHV V8 (the L76, not LS2 as a lot think) the GXP had the LS3, same as the Camaro SS. That's the 6.3L OHV V8.
