More like the kit bashing we did as kids building models. One part from one box, something else from another. I have bought some just for the wheels or engines to go in something else.

Don't care what anybody else calls it, I call it cool!

Had to be modified to clear roller rockers. One time at the drag strip two older guys, men that should know better, were looking at the car. One said it had a Cadillac engine. The other said, "No dummy, can't you see it's a Chevy engine?"

So many people have thought it's an in-line Caddy 6 (never made anything like that) that it's embarrassing.
It's hilarious how many "seasoned car guys" can't identify the 455 Buick in my 46. The front distributor in the aluminum timing cover throws so many off. It's guessed as a Mopar more than a GM product.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.
