Is There Any Car You Can’t Make Cool With A Big Block And A Blower? How About This Citroen Station Wagon?


Is There Any Car You Can’t Make Cool With A Big Block And A Blower? How About This Citroen Station Wagon?

We’ve seen some pretty weird and ugly cars that got a big block with a blower, along with some big meats, and become something awesome and cool. We’ve also seen weird ugly rides that people have tried to make cool that failed miserably. But was it the car’s fault? Or was it that someone just didn’t commit enough to put a big block and a blower in it? I tend to think that adding a big block and a blower makes pretty much anything better, sorta like rolling anything in a tortilla makes it better. Do you agree? Is adding a big block with a blower enough to make something like this Citroen Wagon cool? I happen to think it just might be and would love to see one in person that had had that done to it.

The one below has an LS engine in it, and is pretty cool, but I personally think it would be even cooler with a blower sticking out of the hood and sitting on top of a big block Chevrolet. Tell me I’m wrong. I dare you.

So if you use the Citroen as an example, is there any car you CAN’T make cool with a big block and a blower?

    How come I wasn’t surprised to learn that there was an LS under the hood? Swap the V6 Maserati motor out of an SM or the bi-turbo from a whole range of later Maseratis and don’t even think of slotting in a hunka Chevy shit!

      No, no! They were looking to make something reliable. Not take an obscure car and make it more obscure by sticking a shitbag motor in it.Literally no one wants to actually swap a Maserati v6 into anything.

    Bag on the LS if you want, Geordie, (I’m gettin’ tired of ’em too) but the workmanship on that teal sedan is incredible! Looks it up. It’s drop-dead gorgeous! Just put yer thumb over the LS and imagine the mill of choice in it’s place. Although, a blower… Mmmmm!

    As nice as that sedan is, it’s just a formula that’s been done before, albeit a cool one.
    Take a weird body and put it on a fabbed chassis and detail it to the max.
    For me I’d take the ID break, the wagon, and create a Subaru based flat 8 to replace the I4. That way you retain the unique Citroen engineering bits like the high pressure hydraulic suspension, brakes and steering.
    FYI, Citroen wanted to use a flat 6 in the DS however they were strapped for cash, as always, and retained the I4 from the 1930s.

    I also am of the blower/big tires cure most ills, I also like the old car, bad suspension/ new frame and suspension modified cars (my MGB is one). The Citroen might be carrying the sows ear into silk purse thing too far though. Still would be interesting to see one.. As for Geordie, does he have a modified car or even drive, live in mom’s basement, what the heck is his problem?

    Until more of us contact the boys and ask to have geordie removed we’re all stuck with his lame comments.

    How about this? We put him in the Citroen/Lemon with a couple of JATO’s attached, couple of brochures on dental hygiene on the front seat, light ’em up and point the car Snake River?

    If Evel Knievel could make it work (kind of) why couldn’t a handful of BS’ers do it?

    Sometimes, there may be an even more interesting upgrade you could make to an otherwise boring car. But for adding interest, putting a ton of horsepower in the car and letting the whole world know about it is an option where you can’t go wrong. (OK, actually making the car itself safely drivable with a big block and blower is an area where you could go horribly wrong. But for initial reactions before anyone checks if the motor is writing checks the chassis can’t cash, the big block and blower is a can’t go wrong formula.)
