Yes it was yellow.
That v12 jag 32 ford was in Rod&Custom
It took him like 10 years to build.

I have also seen a Chevelle with a big block ford in it. It said powered by ford on the back it was kind of cool.

I saw a formula 440 go-kart with a 1000+ cc motorcycle motor running high 11's and fishtailing it's way down the track.
and a 72 Monte Carlo with a 460 Ford (no times)
and an 84 F150 with a Pontiac 455 running low 14's, when it went up for sale nobody believed it had a Pontiac motor, that's the most times I've ever been accused of lying.

Craziest ever, this would come close.........V12 Rolls Royce Merlin Aircraft Engine in a 1955 Chevrolet BelAir Sports Coupe. This thing has been estimated to have in the vacinity of 3000hp. It is fully road registered street legal here in Australia.

It is an amazing site to see this thing driving along the road, it sounds awesome.

Wow, I'd have to say the Belair takes the cake, that is a whole LOT o motor. Prolly makes a racket like nothing short of a nitro dragster. Got any videos of that thing?

Well, it's not a BB but it IS an RX-7. I couldn't resist posting these picks when a couple people mentioned crazy RX-7 conversions. I did this one back in '93. It's a '79 RX with and Olds 307 and 350 trans. The interesting thing is these are actually not that difficult to do. The front mounts just require a 2x4 sq. tube "riser" between the mounts and the trans mount is just part of the Olds mount drilled and bolted to the Mazda cross member. Shorten the driveshaft and you're on the road. The biggest problems was getting enough clearance to close the hood (I wanted a sleeper - so no scoops etc.) Also needed to beat on the trans tunnel in a couple of spots to get everything to fit - but no cutting was required. I sold it in 1995 not long after finishing the body work and paint.

Sorry about the poor B&W picture quality - this was well before digital cameras were invented.

My dad had an 83 RX-7. That was a pretty quick little car with the rotary engine in it. They're so light I bet the thing flew down the strip. That little jewel died when he hit a stalled car in the middle of a bridge. The guy in front of him just darted around and he didn't have time to react. Sad end....

It's not really TOO wild, but there is a guy here in OKC that installs the Northstar V8's from a late model Caddys into Pontiac Fieros...He buys some of the parts that he uses for the swap from me...I've watched him leave the parking lot under full throttle, and let me tell you, that little booger will MOVE!
