My auto tech teacher had a '66 Toranado. He brought it to the shop to show to us. I have to say it was pretty cool. Telescopic steering wheel, engine bay the size of a college dorm room, and a gas pedal you could fit both your feet on comfortably with room to spare

Gotta give it to JoeG.....1929 is a little earlier than 66....LOL

I am still saying the 425 inch Olds though....unless by some chance it was still the nailhead in 66, don't think so though......

Give us a question Joe....I can't think of one anyways.

It was a 425 in 66, the 455 didn't come out until about 1970. And Poncho, the Nailhead was a Buick motor, not Olds.
