Hopefully, someday when I get my patio done. And I thought fixing/owning these cars was expensive. Landscaping/hardscape project costs-just WOW!

In the muscle car community it is called a "Blower" for good reason.

From what I heard he was trying to fit an LS1 into it, which was never going to go well, especially when it envolves a kid trying to do one of the largest mods you can do on a car older than he was.

Originally from Monte Carlo, Monaco. The most amazing place in the world, but you always feel that little bit better when you are viewing it from the seat of a Ferrari.

That made my day. There are "mechanics" next door to em that insist on listening to engine crank endless revolutions, despite anything positive happening. Somehow they aren't aware of the difference between an engine priming and one with a problem that will never start or run correctly without repair.

I love at the end when he points the hose right down the carb! I hope there's a part two where he tries to crank the engine again and hydro locks it.

I always know what I am dealing with when someone tries to get it running before putting it all back together.

Probably a good idea to keep a fire extinguisher in the garage. I will have to remember to be a bit more careful when putting a V8 in my car now
