I'm just impressed by the use of "Dagmar" in sentence.

It's not feminine sounding to me.

I'll stick with "boobie".

As much as I have enjoyed this titillating interlude we must keep abreast of the current situation. Am I the only boob that remembers the question? You people need to use those melons you have on your shoulders and come up with a answer! I'll check back later . Dinner out tonight . We're going to Hooters. Then home to play with the puppies and finely desert. Cantaloupes! I love em!
Tata's to you all until later.

OMG I knew the car was a Cadillac and remembered the name as Cyclone but that was it. I had to go to one of my bibles on concept cars and found that those were a friggin housing for radar! It provided the driver with visual and audible warnings of obstacles in his path! I don't remember ever reading that!

I can kick myself real hard, I REALLY feel like kicking myself for not getting out to Monterey when these cars were there, DAMN it. But honestly, I didn't know until after it happen. Being I am not in that upper class of the Kingdom I didn't know they were going to be there.

I am not kidding, there is nothing that fires me up more in the automotive world more than fifties and sixties concept cars. Looking at that photo, those incredible cars in one of the most beautiful places on earth, and I missed it.

Well that makes two of us. I missed it also. I wonder if the radar was funcional. I remember going to the 53 or 54 Motorama and see a television in the back seat of a Caddy concept and couldn't comprehend how that could work. It had a three speed Hydromatic and a two speed differential together as a transaxle assy. Six forward speeds.
It's All yours.

That maybe so but you didn't ask about the aftermarket stuff , you asked about the engine.

Honestly, because of the aftermarket stuff this motor has a new name. Still the old name to but it is now a hyphenated name. It is such a big change that it literally became something new.
