67 Olds 442 Burnout at Lorentz Wedding

This was a video I took of my best friend and his wife after their wedding. I purchased the car in origional condition in 1999 when I was in high school. It then was a Cutlass Supreme with the origional Rocket 330 and 2 speed Jetaway auto trans. I drove it without any mods for about a year then I decided to fit a Olds 455 in it. I built the engine from a Vista Cruiser and put a turbo 400 behind it with a full manual shift. I then completely rebuilt the rear axle and put lower gears in it with the olds cone type posi. I call it a 442 but it was a CS. I ran it down the strip a few times and it got mid 14's. One day testing on the track the float in the carb failed and ran the engin dry at full throttle halfway down the quarter mile. The resulting super lean mixture at 6000 rpm cracked #8 piston. I did not know it was damaged at the time since it was running well so I readjusted the carb a drove it home. On one of my trips from WYOTECH to home I gunned it hard up a hill and the piston let go. It was fun while it lasted. I then removed the engine and took the car to my Chassis Fab class at WYOTECH where I completely removed the body, boxed the frame and control arms and installed an NHRA certified rollcage. I was then deployed to Iraq for a year and then was married-----I never had the time or money to finish my project. I sold it to my best friend for $1000 and he has turned it into more than I could ever afford. There is most likely 10 grand in the engine alone and more mods are being done everyday. Its great to still be able to see the car I fell in love with 10 years ago being enjoyed today by a great friend.

1967 Hot Rod Cutlass "Street Bully" 572 Chevy Big Block Burnout
1967 Cutlass "Street Bully" built in California and sold new in Tucson Arizona. The Olds now has a 572 Chevrolet Rat Roller motor with 620 HP and 650 Ft. Lbs of torque, a 700r4 gear changer with stage 2 kit and fully manual valve body, the rear end is a 3.90 posi. A Hurst shifter was installed to give it that Hurst/Olds twist and we added the original Hurst Olds badges to the car. There never was any Hurst Olds in 1967 and being a 4 door this car really freaks people out. Also there were not many 4 doors that were hard tops (notice no post between the doors)most were sedans. The bench seats really take you back to the 60's with the groovy pattern on the seat material. We added some pearl and candy ghost flames to the super faded out paint from the Arizona sun and bolted a vintage Cragar SS wheel and knock off to each corner. Its been a lot of fun and a real BLAST to drive. Make no mistake, when you hit the start button on the Bully you know that aint no 330 Olds under the hood. The only problem we seem to have with this project is keeping rear tires on it ! Thanks for looking and happy Hot Rodding!

1966 Olds 442 W30 MuscleCar Nationals Race & Show Fun
Great memories racing and showing my 1966 Olds 442 Tri-Carb W30 with friends at the MuscleCar Nationals in Sacramento. I restored it to showroom condition in the 1980's, including balancing and blueprinting the original Olds 400 engine and drivetrain to factory specs as documented in the 2-part article I wrote for Musclecar Review magazine. It's all 442 including the original Olds 400 "E" block, heads, carbs, intake/carbs, etc, and raced on DOT legal street tires through mufflers and full Exhaust per Musclecar Nationals factory stock rules. I raced my first 442 in stock eliminator during the 1960's, and had a ball with my friends showing and racing this one at various events around the country. I hope you enjoyed sharing this trip down musclecar memory lane with me. If you need quality restoration parts or would like a professional video or slideshow of your car, visit our SuperCar Specialty website at http://www.supercarspecialty.com. This video is dedicated to my good friend John Seguin, who died shortly after he videotaped some of the racing scenes in this video for me. Here's to John and our other friends who share our passion for cars: cars and shows may come and go, including the MuscleCar Nationals, but our memories make sure that "Good Friends are Forever".
