        Looks nice! Are you going to put a big Aluminum Buick in yours?
        Why think when you can be doing something fruitful?

          My heart is breaking. Another thing I'll never have. Of course, we DO buy Lotto tickets, so maybe........

            I'm too cheap :*( I think I'd build a 472/500 Caddy with a turbo first.

              hmmm, no Buick 350 with turbo first?

              I'm still in the planning stages for a 300 all aluminum turbo build... problem is, what would I put a light, 1000 hp motor into?

                  I seriously considered taking my dad up on his offer to let me have a 62 Buick skylark - but no - I'm still not over my old one... plus, I have enough builds going that I'll be busy until the next Mayan apocalypse...

                    I have no desire to build a Buick 350 or V6, but I do want to build a Cadillac 472/500, but have no desire to own a car that came with one.

                      Randall, you do realize that is not an insurmountable obstacle, right?

                        I already have one engine ready to go together in my basement, I don't need a second one!

                        Latest suggestion is to build an ark around the engine and flood the basement to get it out,

                            I know where a 500 is lurking.... came out of a Studebaker truck

                            I figure someday I'll come up with the right project for it.... but for now it sits and waits.
