Some Errands To Run, Back Later

I wish.
The anemic, bone stock V-6 in mine with the whopping 229 cubic inches of displacement wouldn't spin a back tire on dry pavement to save my life.
It does keep me from getting a bunch of reckless driving tickets though so there is that.

I have turned into such the Grandpa old fart guy.

A big-block can be shoe-horned in there without too much trouble.

Seriously, if you develop an engine problem that requires a rebuild a 350 crate engine would be an economical choice over rebuilding the 229.

I have a supposedly "low mileage crate motor" I got from a buddy complete with a used Turbo 350 for $500 sitting on an engine stand in the garage as I type.
He got it from some other guy who had put it in a 70's stepside 4X4 and then lost his license so he parted it out. It's been sitting for several years now so it needs to be gone through but I don't think it would take too much to get it in shape. It even came with an extra Torquer manifold and a newish looking Edelbrock 4 barrel to go on it if I want to start down that twisted path.
Contingencies baby, I has 'em!
