well i was at work and my co-worker was talking trash about my car and was telling me he could absolutely demolish my car in a race. so we decided to bet our tip-out money on it (which was $6).lol

so we went out to an old wide country road(no cars around) and went at it. i gave 3 honks and we both launched. i pulled right past him in 1st. and i just kept getting further away. i was about 50 cars lengths ahead when i shut down (top of 4th).

after we talked and he says "i need a faster car". then hes like "hey next supra u see for sale let me know" so i got my $6 and i converted this guy to supras :p

LMAO. I have hated Skylarks since I owned a '90 Custom Skylark sedan...

But the '70s ones are fairly cool. But the 350 was probably clogged with emissions equipment, and it was dragging along a much heavier car.

My cousin (not zank) bought a somewhere in the 70's caddy he wants to pimp out. Like u guys said the thing is a boat which weigths about "20 tonnes" not to mention a 7.4L engine with a monstrose 8mpg :shocked!:

In anycase cartman job well done. :clap:

PS. CArtman is the car in your avatar yours. Man that color is sweet.

472 cubic inch engine, I assume? The 500 would be (I think) 8.2L?

Nice! There's no substitution for cubic inches...except, possibly, twin turbos and nitrous... ;)

Funniest car build up I ever read (I think it was in "Hot Rod" or "Car Craft"): Chevette buildup with a Caddy 500 engine.

DON'T knock the Caddy 500s! Believe it or not, with aluminum intake and some tube headers, they weigh LESS than a small block chevy! No kidding. And the good years (72 IIRC) came with 400 horse and 500 ft/lbs STOCK! The Cad 425, 472 and 500 are very stout engines.

Oh BTW Skylarks suck. Nice Kill!

I didn't mean it as a knock on the 500/472/425. I just find their using a Chevette humorous...

I always wondered what a 500 cubic inch Cimmaron would be like.

But yeah, those engines are awesome.
