    Buick, not Mopar. But either is just weird.

    I won't give $2.50 for that, but I would like to give him a Rochambeau for having stupidly done that.

    Building funny cars is a fine tradition.

    Funny cars I am fine with...weird cars, however, don't sit well with me.

    I think the 455 nail head was an interesting Idea

    Don't laugh at those big Buicks. I took a 340 and 400 turbo from a 67 Buick to give a 57 Chevy more grunt, later found a healthy 455 from a 70 GS to up the ante. The 57 only weighed as much as a 69 Rally Sport Camaro so it made a nice grocery getter. 455 Olds made lot's of torque too so that swap was done often around here.
