There were 3 pace cars made for race day at Indy with the superduty 4 cyl capable of speeds to support the pace laps, and then, like all other Indy pace cars, the car company-GM made replicas of that model. About 2000 of them made with the much lower hp 4 cyl 'Duke' engine. . I bought one from Virginia and had it shipped down and the 2nd one from Gatesville Tx and drove from East Texas to get it. I believe the last time I checked (around 2015) there were around 500 of them known to be left in North America.Wow! My husband had one of those Fieros when they first came out. I didn't think there were very many of the "Pace Car" edition made. He was a Trans-Am guy back then, but he had to have that Fiero just because it was rare. He only kept it a year...
Absolutely.... But there's also a lot of pride in knowing every inch of your car.He’s right..cheaper to buy than build..
I've more often than not heard it referred to as insanity.. not all that different from raising cattle.your own restoration is not a profitable business because your passion gets the best of you.
It’s a real SS ..but this 396 makes number 4 that’s been in it ...i strained the vocal cords on a couple when I was a kid…I could twist those small block out of the frameLooks like that's a real SS 396? Worth quite a few dollars these days
Here are my last ones.
1967 Cadillac Eldorado ( never should have done this )
I'm getting too old now .....I've had a 70 Monte Carlo on the rotisserie for about 3 years. Had to have surgery on my hands so it kind of took me out of the game for the time being.
