A friend of mine once had an 87 Buick Century that had died right before entering a destruction derby. He bought it with a warped engine for $150, and put a Valucraft set of heads ($20) from Autozone on the engine. He then junked a Blazer and an *-10 and made a weird concoction of radiators, alternators, and the like. The body had started to rust, so he bought a bunch of spray cans and painted his car in a Wal-Mart parking lot. He said the engine'* cylinders (2.5L 4-cyl) were about as big as his head.
This is the guy who'* randomly pictured in the photos of car work. His friend is the shirtless guy putting in my carpet. Well, anyway... The Buick was junked, unfortunately, not too long ago. It'* far too unfortunate, because that would have been an awesome car to turbocharge to crap. Good for a drag race, right? Besides, it would have been junked for the same $80 profit with or without a rod sticking out of the head.
