I had an '80-something Grand Prix that was much like your Olds. But that piece o' crap 3.8 V-6 was nothing but trouble. These days, twenty years later, I sure would have replaced it with a Chevy 383 stroker!

Yeah, I have seen first-gen Nissan 280Z V-8 conversions, too. And Volvos can be easily modified to take a small-block V-8. I know there is at least one company making a conversion kit for the Ford Focus that allows you to drop a 5.0 between the framerails, while adding goodies like a Ford 8.8 rear end to the formerly front-wheel-drive platform. Wouldn't THAT be a fun sleeper?
I already have a Focus ZX5. Now to convince the missus that we need to upgrade power a little bit.... =)

like to see that up on 2 wheels. on pink (speed channel) they had a 350 in what looked like a gremlin. thing made it to the finals on the strip. Anyways, you could always try to save little by little and buy things individualy, get some guys over to help you put it all together. thats what i do.

I'd prefer a pit crew of cool gals. Know any? ;-)

For now the Focus is her everyday commuter. Once in a while I like to make sure it'll still get a little scratch in the 1-2 shift.

Speaking of up on two wheels, I once had a Renault LeCar up on two wheels ~ the left two. I was way drunk and racing a buddy, and using the handbrake to help me around the corners. It tipped, I lost steering control, drove up over the curb and through a fence. A few days later, everything was okay again. I later drove that car from California to Michigan, and it got sold.
