Lol! Cathode, love it. Too obscure though most people don't fire enough brain cells to get the joke. I had a 67 Chevelle. 350 with camel hump .202
327 fuelly heads. Wicked car. Lost it after a divorce years ago. I still cry daily. My therapist says its just a car. He's wrong. It was one if the
finest examples of heavy Chevy steel on the road.
Ah, the last of the long tails.. I envy the memories. I'll have to stop after this post,
it's painful in a way. BTW NO therapist I've ever heard of had an engine that produced
more than 1.5 bhp per cube... nobody. Alas "uncouth torque curve" is ancient English.
Back to your replay, thanks for the kind word; and don't be ashamed of the comfort
level. We're getting on in years now, and displays of fiery asphalt by mature individuals
is becoming publicly scorned. Well, I say snip 'em if they can't fake a joke. Besides,
the Beemer is a super dependable and stable ride, fast like the spring breeze, and etc.
At my age, having to go out to the garage with a bullwhip, tape up the windows
(so the shards wouldn't puncture the tires) and start the HalfBreed gorilla ('55 glas dog
house) in the winter would get me at least a separated shoulder. More cowbell/benzine.
My cousin Jerry got back from VietNam in late '63, and immediately rotated almost
all of his saved up combat pay on a 'brand new' loser maliblue colored Impala. Original
Fuelie, and in two weeks a huge Paxton squirrel cage blower spun with the longest
v-belt I've seen yet-- and I'm 61 now. When the belt stayed on, it was a freak of nature.
What some guys will do for comfort level and low 12's... two years later a '66 -bu with
a destroked NASCAR Rat. L71, aluminum heads- the real deal. He's gettin' there...
I on the other hand saw a steal, and began rearranging firewall/dashboard/hump for
a much bigger package in the '73 Pinto. I know, FoMoCo: but that platform with a
thinwall 351 and some extra goodies went as fast as the gasser did LMAO: On 93o.
Downside, it cornered like a shopping cart with a side of beef in front
