Oh I know they can be powerful (I also own one) but for the amount of $$$ and time it takes to hop one up, one can swap in a V8 (or Maggy-num V6 like I want to do) and get cheap power. Heck the Maggy 6 is going to double my Valiant's HP in stock form! (90+ to 180hp plus I get EFI too)

Roger, your opinion doesn't count because, like me, you like orphan cars 

Slant six racing gets the same or less coverage and following than do the Studebakers, Packards, Hudsons....etc. I saw firsthand how popular Crosleys were among the populace..... /6 cars get similar respect

The A body cars were originally designed with the slant six in mind. The lighter engine works better than a heavier engine in many types of racing. When you double the car's hp and torque they will walk on a 340 car. The hemi version of the slant six was the best combination they ever made...well over 300 hp! Too bad they did not release them in North America!
