Back in 1965 I had a new Olds 442. It had the 400 cu.in. engine, 4 speed muncie box and 350 hp. A total hoot to drive. Excuse the scanned in old picture:



Did you, or do you currently have some of the hot muscle cars produced in the 1960's and 1970's?

Not '60s or '70s, but we used to have a '99 Cobra that had a whole bunch of mods. Hubby had it up to 350hp.....
Good woman, gotta love the Cobras. :D

Mom and Dad brought me home from the hospital in a '70 442 convertible. I have a P.O.S. 81 firebird formula that I tinker on from time to time. I need to stop buying guns and build a shop so I can get some work done on it.

Naw, I rebuilt the carb a while back and she only ran about 15 more minutes, Mine has the crappy 301 cid, I want to eventually get a plain 'ole 350 under the hood, I got a lot more to do before then.

Like I said its a good match when you get it running well, I'm only pushin a 302. How about building a good ol' 383 instead of a regular 350??

EDIT: On the topic of old cars, here is a video of my friends 65' Mustang road car. This thing is an absolute beast.

I'm not really interested in making' a performer out of it, just a Sunday driver. Not gonna put the air conditioner back in it, it has t-tops, I think a decent 350 would be enough for me. Crazy thing is that I can go get an Auto-trader magazine and find a good running Bandit or similar for less than what I'll spend fixin' up this heap. I'm hard headed. i was watching too many of the car-fixer-up shows on Saturday morning, and bought this project for 1200 bucks.

Frat brother of mine had a '66 Nassau Blue "Vette convert. He was killed in a small plane crash, family would'nt sell his car tho. Those '63-'67 "Vettes are worth big money now.
