The 2 best were, the 1961 Olds Super 88. Free from the Apartment manager. Mom and us kids helped out with their kennel, some baddass Pekinese dogs. Like ours. grin

My 1959 Chevy 2 door 6 cylinder 3 speed Biscayne, had a mechanical failure when I pulled downhill into the parking spot next to ours, and blllrrr. Fuel pump failure. Lol.
The Richard neighbor guy raised a fuss, as i repaired it asap. The Manager had just bought a super nice light blue metallic very nice Pontiac Bonneville, early '60ish, oh my.

So, he gave me their 1961 Oldsmobile Super 88. 394 cu in. 345hp 4 bbl 4 speed auto. Weird super low first gear like a V6 GMC truck auto, circa 1960's. Stab the throttle when that second gear locked up. North Broadway after school where the sand washed over the road, not too crazy, just fun. Went 110 mph on Hwy 395. smile o

Went to work, bought my Uncle in laws '70 Chevy C10. Fried the 292 I-6 moving my sister from Desert Hot Springs, key word, hot1 shocked R&R it, with my MIL's 327 from her '69 Impala 4 door, with a bad rear end. C'mon Len!! laugh We loved that car. Can't keep 'em all. So sad. lolThe Granny 4 speed was fine we put a stiff clutch in that was hard to push!

15 years that 327 lived on. Only had to R&R service the heads & the head gaskets.


My BIL had helped me R&R the fried 283 in my $250 1965 Chevy Impala 2door. Bought my drunk Uncle in Law's 6 cylinder from his totaled 67 Malibu convertible, RIP bent into a horseshoe. Score one 250 inline Chevy 6. Bolts right up to a Powerglide. No burnouts with that. Just good service. cheers chevy

Gordon built and raced that 283 in his Econorail dragster. Crewed in his 1974 Big 10. Fun! lol
His transmission choices in his class were the 3 speed or the Powerglide. grin
Fun times, Carlsbad Raceway, back in the day. Flatbottom V8 Ski boats in the

Carlsbad Lagoon too. V8's are hard to give up. Some things you never let go.

Some things you can't get enough, I guess we can only hope

For maybe one more chance, To try and save them ALL!!

Because Love is a long long road..

Fred had the '65 Flatwindow 90 with a 327 SBC/ PG. One of those crazy Kawasaki Mach III 500 riders! He did V-8's into quite a few Chevy Vegas too. he did so many, lol from either breaking tranny's or twisting the rear ends out. shocked lol

I liked the wagons, but his Chevy van with the 327 Powerglide was by far the best ride down to the SD Sports Arena. Moody Blues, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, TP, Good times so glad I wasn't driving. cheers Safety First!
