the california cars got 350'* with smog controls. the rest of the coutry got 305'* 3.8s or 2.5s. the 305 actually had more power than the 350.

as for the 442, i like all the Gm muscle cars but she doesn't reallt like any of them... it kinda sucks.

I don't know how you can love the 55-57' Bel Air, but not like the Nomad.
