Did not know about the Ponte-Carlo, that's pretty interesting:

Quote

Another piece of Wangers history is the 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, nicknamed the Ponte Carlo because of the NHRA-certified Pontiac 467cid V8 that resides under its hood.  The engine was built by Duncan Michaels, a contract engineer for GM.

“This car represents the Jim Wangers counter-culture theme of mixing Pontiac and Chevrolet equipment to produce an astounding racing machine,” the Mecum catalog says. “Wangers was so proud of this car that his autograph remains imprinted on the dashboard.

“Having begun its life as a street racer, the Ponte Carlo is a legend amongst the San Diego street-racing scene as well as the Pontiac hobbyist community.”
