Chuck's Camaro #2: 307 Rebuild Part 1
In this video Brent and I tear down a 327 donor engine and the 307 that was
original to the car. We then clean up the 307 block, heads, and other
engine parts. After meeting Chuck the previous owner I am renaming the
project after him. He was a total hot rodder back in the day and smoked a
lot cars. Nobody believed the Camaro had 307 in it.
Chuck's Camaro #3: 307 Rebuild Part 2
In this video we continue our rebuild of the 307 small block Chevy. Brent
was doing most of work but Ryan and I helped as well. We all had a good
time and I learned a lot. It was nice to see all the hard work of cleaning
parts payed off. Warning: this video contains some strong language.

Oldsmobile 307 V8 Build Part 5
Taking out the pistons led me to discover that the bearing and crank shaft
are damage far far beyond any hope of repair.
One bearing was so bad that it ate itself away, as well as the crank shaft
to a measurable degree.
I've never seen something this bad, and can't believe the owner got this
far without thinking the clunks they are hearing where bad.
Built 307 first start (Open headers)
This is the engine in my truck and I've had it torn down almost all the way
and then put a better set of heads on it (Bigger valves) Highrise intake,
new cam with a .470 lift, lifters, roller rockers, Chrome valve covers too.
I'm just building this engine up cause its what I've got, plus wll the
parts on this will fit on a 350, so I can re-use these parts for when I
build a 383 for it. By the way, the carb isn't right, I'm having it rebuilt
now. should have it back today.
Carb'd 461 Big Block - 1965 Oldsmobile - /BIG MUSCLE
Say hello to the first Oldsmobile we've ever featured on /BIG MUSCLE. This
1965 Cutlass F-85 has been cloned into a wicked 442 by it's owner. The goal
was simple - take a car that was a bit outside the norm and slowly
transform it into a kick-ass cruiser that has the ability to be flogged on
the autocross. With a carb'd 461 big block under the hood, it's big,
different and one of the most overlooked machines from the muscle car era.

132198 / 1957 Oldsmobile: Golden Rocket 88
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/blcwa26
Don't be fooled by the large-by-huge chrome wheels it's wearing today, this
particular '57 Golden Rocket 88 is an authentic J2 car, and is extensively
and thoroughly restored to original condition from top to bottom. Our
documents suggest that this is one of only four Golden Rocket 88 2-door
sedans in existence with the J2 engine.
The two-tone bodywork on this car is spectacularly done and looks
especially striking in black and white with a red stripe in the chrome trim
that separates the two halves. Bodywork is beautiful, with straight panels
and excellent fit throughout, evidenced by the miles-deep reflections in
The real story on this Olds is the J2 371 cubic inch engine under the hood.
Fully rebuilt during the restoration, it runs like new and the passing of
years has proven that these are some extremely durable engines. Detailing
is first-rate too, from the 'Oldsmobile J2 Rocket" decals on the valve
covers, to the correct 2-barrel carburetors, to the original power steering
system that's fully functional. You'll note that this engine sports a trio
of shorty air cleaners on the carbs, but the original dual oil-bath air
cleaner is also included.
The engine is backed by a 3-speed Hydramatic transmission, and drives the
original rear end. Brakes were rebuilt to stock specifications, as was the
suspension, although the car was given a subtle, aggressive look by
tweaking the spring height slightly. The car wears a set of chrome Billet
Specialties wheels, but the original 15-inch steel wheels and plain hubcaps
From the tri-tone seats with patented GM comfort weave cushions, to the
positively breathtaking instrument cluster, this interior is new. The
original radio has been upgraded to include an iPod interface. The trunk is
sporting a custom carpet, but an original trunk mat is included.
This Olds is fast, comfortable, luxurious, and about 2/3 the cost of a
comparable Chevy. There are no irreversible modifications, and this car
could be put back to 100% stock condition in an afternoon. Act fast and
