Re: Random Pictures For Fun.


When I handled that one the other day, I found it remarkable how differently they postured depending where they were.

On the glass of my door, that feller flattened out.

On the grass, he moved like the dickens, looking for cover

Once he got resigned to the fact that my hand was all there was - he rearranged himself to look like a branch/twig.

What I also found interesting is, that their ass ends bear a strong resemblance to those of dragon flies.

Yep, took me a minute or two to figure out which end was the front, and like a dragon fly sounds pretty accurate.

Fun to watch these guys.

Anybody else had one of these? 500 cubic inches, front wheel drive, comfortably seats two - four in a pinch.

Pre-credit cards, just in time for the Oil Embargo.

Good times, good times !

Worked on many of them, never owned one.

My least favorite to work on were the early/mid 70’s Olds. They had the grill divider which was part of the hood. Left a lot of scalp and hair on those hoods. Delta 88, 98, Cutlass, 442, damn those hoods.

Oh God yes ! Worked at a Chevy Olds dealer early 70s. Every mechanic had the same hatred.

Awesome !

I already told how the diesel Toronado we had in the early 80s puked the motor at 50K - and GM was saying eff you to everybody.

So I got a case of the ass and dropped a 455 out of a pre-emissions Olds 98 into it. It Was a sleeper monster.

It was an easy swap. The only issue I recollect was in cutting/rotating the ears on the RH exhaust manifold outlet.

Must have kept the gas manifolds for some reason.

I did a few back when did mechanic work, few pickups and few cars. the best engine to put in was a Olds 350 or 403 dropped right and exhaust hooked right up. Did one with a 455 and on the right ex manifold put it on the surface grinder and changed the angle to clear the heater , Seems like always had to change the pressure switch in the tranny too.
