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 Oldsmobile 442
The Oldsmobile 442 was a muscle car produced by the Oldsmobile division of
General Motors. It was introduced as an option package for F-85 and Cutlass
models sold in the United States beginning with the 1964 model year. The
442 title comes from the configuration of the car: a four-barrel
carburetor, a four-speed manual transmission, and dual Exhaust pipes.
For 1967 the 442's styling and base engine remained the same. The 1967 442
package was based on the top-line Cutlass Supreme series including the
sport coupe (with center post), Holiday hardtop coupe and convertible. The
heavy-duty floor-mounted three-speed manual transmission was now standard,
and front disc brakes were a new option this year. Standard equipment on
all models included Strato bucket seats or no-cost notchback bench seat,
full carpeting, expanded Morocceen vinyl upholstery, heavy-duty suspension
with rear sway bar, and wide-oval tires. Power front disc brakes were $104,
while power steering was $94.
This "Triple Black Beauty" had a body-on restoration and one repaint. It is
all original, and has been garage kept its entire life.

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.

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".
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
1968 442 1979 Boulder City 2009 Burnout HD
When I posted my original video youtube called "1968 442 & 1973 340 Duster
in 1979 Boulder City", I didn't know what ever happened to my 442. I had
sold it in the early 1980's and never saw it again. I recently found it and
the new owner was nice enough to let me drive it once again. It brought
back such great memories. Darren (the new owner) brought it back from the
dead (the guy I sold it to nearly destroyed the car) and suped up the big
block 400 and it still has the massive torque it had before. The funny part
of this story is that this was my first car when I was 16 years old. When
Darren got it, it was his first car when he was 16 as well. Enjoy.
