    A relative of mine died and i'm getting their old Lemans. Don't know anything about this car except that its got to be better than the '92 civic hatchback i'm rocking out right now. Anyone here have any info on this car or links where i can search for info myself?

    This is all by memory, so I'm not entirely sure of the year, but I believe the 75 Lemans still had the 400 engine. The 400 has alot of performance potential, but in the 75 year, power was down dramaticly thanks to the new emissions equipment, and the fuel crisis. The engines from 75 typicaly had really low compression, weak cams, and poor flowing exhaust and intake. However with some head work, a good cam, and header they pretty much wake up and tend to make a great street/strip car.
