Default Big Body smell

Does anyone know what that 85' Caprice smell comes from. It smells like fuel fumes and other exhaust fumes and smell dam appealing. I get high off those fumes, I wish I had it in my bonnie, they should make air freshener from it. Is it the carb from those type of cars that produces that smell?

Nope, that is just the classic GM exhaust smell. Any GM I have ever owned smells similar to it. Chryslers have their own exhaust smell too, usually burning oil, and so do Ferds, usually just smelly in general.

I wouldn't say it'* a classic gm smell, I say you are smelling an exhaust leak.
