78 station wagon i bought for $50 and blew the tiny v6 oops so i found this 350 olds rocket lying in my grandpas barn and stuffed it in the car upgraded to 11.5:1 compression this thing should fly in the near future.
Digging into my Rocket 350
Now that I've got the engine pulled from my 1970 Cutlass Supreme, it's time
ot tear it down a bit and get ready for some cleaning and upgrades!
Oldsmobile Rocket 350 running on a homemade test stand
Hello to all those Oldsmobile fans out there!!!
This is my first engine build and also my first ever YouTube Video, so
bear with me..lol. This engine came out of a 1970 olds cutlass without A/C.
I kept the internals stock because its a great engine just as it came from
the factory. It has a Mondello balancer and sealed power cam and lifters.
Also added an HEI distributor and R46sz plugs for easier starts and
hopefully better fuel economy on high octane(91-93). Ask if you want
details on the motor or anything else, Bill
World's Greatest Wagon? - /BIG MUSCLE
• BIG MUSCLE GARAGE
Sometimes old cars break, it's just what happens. While some may see this
as an inconvenience, we here at /BIG MUSCLE took it as an opportunity to
expand our horizons, take a chance, and venture to a place we rarely
frequent - the drag strip. Our plan was to film, talk to and get an idea of
what racers go through when they run their cars down the 1,320. Everything
was going great, until that is, they told us WE could race. We showed up in
our 1992 Chevrolet Caprice wagon, aka, the Battle Wagon, so we knew we
weren't going to set any records. What we weren't prepared for though, was
the amount of fun we'd have running one of the slowest vehicles on the
planet, at one of the fastest places in Northern California.
David Vs. Goliath
Goliath wins here. '87 Caprice wagon Vs. '07 Chevy Cobalt. Both are our
daily drivers. Not the quickest run in the world, but this is just the
first test day after the engine swap in the wagon. keep in mind that you
can still hear the wagon OVER the loudspeakers until more than a quarter
1988 Yugo GV With Oldsmobile V-8 Conversion
This Yugo called our name when we saw it on Craigslist. We just had to go
drive it. It was terrifying...but still awesome.

Busted!! Cops bust a highly modified volvo turbo.
WATCH THE MIDDLE LANE @ THE LIGHT!!!!!
"The Brick"- otherwise known the old skool volvo sleeper-esque station
wagon looking thing. A favorite for enthusiasts given the potential for
power as seen in this example. The show and go got stopped by Ocean
Citys(MD) finest as he was displaying his wares. Limiter hits hard as
wastegate to atmosphere is ridiculously loud. Props to this awesome
