OK, all this talk about whether the car is fast or not, I don't know because I've never driven one. I would love to get one, and the one I'm looking at has the 351 in it, I don't need to go "super duper fast", but I at least want a little get up and go. What things can I do to the motor to some get some more kick to it.

I just heard a radio show about Canadian cars, and it said the Bricklin was made in Canada, in the Maritimes.

The car was built in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada from 1974 to 1976. check it out on wikipedia.

Does the Bricklin Gullwing get good gas mileage? What is the gas mileage?

It's a 1970's vintage car with a V8 engine. If you're concerned about gas mileage, you should be looking elsewhere. These were never intended as daily drivers, neither in 1974 and certainly not now.

These cars are powered by Ford's 351 V8. They were built in New Brunswick, Canada.

With the exception of the Trans Am, this was a very sad era for performance. With smog devices, anti-pollution and the government, it held me from buying any muscle cars after 1970 until 1998, and I picked up a C5.

In 2012, there are many great American performance cars once again. Not necessarily classics, but revitalized modern adaptations. It's exciting again to look at new cars.

I only sat in a new DeLorean at the time; cool looking, and I felt the same with the Bricklin. But the only car that really caught my eye were the Panteras at that time.

Panteras are awesome; the Bricklin is a cheaper option.

I think there are 3 in NZ, 1 in ChCh, the other in Auckland. I had VIN number 1150 for a short while; last I saw of it was a pic on Facebook sitting in a paddock.
