I can get a hold of the hemi or the blown Ford on the cheap. I've never done a forced induction build. That sounds kind of fun to me and Hot rods and blowers have always went well together have they not?

I'd kind of like to see a big block Olds with Edlebrock aluminum heads and intake to knock the weight down and raise the performance up. It would be quite unique to see an old Olds coupe running Olds power. This was a pretty popular thing to do for custon rods back in the 1950's.

Even cooler would be an early Olds V8 with a 6x2 induction setup.

Another vote for Olds under the hood. It doesn't get much prettier than a J-2, though a 455 would really make the tires scream.
