I had a '73 for quite a few years, wish I still had it too. Perfect combination of luxury and power. 455 w/t400 is nearly bulletproof. Did a burnout one time that blew up the right rear tire. HaHa

At the time I had mine my wife (no ex) had a 68 Camaro RS and that 71 Riv was better than that Camaro in every way, outside of the opinion on if it looked better, as far as handling, speed, braking, everything, it blew that little Camaro away. My dad was a Buick salesman and the Riv was a trade in, it only cost me $750, and it was only 7 years old at the time. Blows me away thinking about stuff like that.

Looks like you hit it Big E, never even heard of the Dragon, wild name.

1951-A trim option, Call it Dragon skin so they don't think it's Alligator skin!
1952-
1953-Reintroduced the 'Dragon' model, with a top that resembled Bamboo.
Pretty cool, I don't think today's cars are that interesting. Not like this...

So I'm thinking.. I'm going to base my questions or a question once in a while.
On the mechanical side of things. I don't care if some one Google's for info, just putting it out there so were clear.
OK. What dose a para-diddle (a percussionist term) and most V8's have in common?
For example a SBC.
If you guys aren't game for that type of trivia let me know I've got some others.

I don't know what a "para-diddle" is but I am going to go with a rhythm going from many different drums never hitting two at the same time just as a motor plugs fire?

No, no....Hmmmm. One drum is used.
Look it up. I checked to make sure the info out there is correct.
There is a definitive connection, and your 'kind of' on the correct path.
It's a thinker...

Very interesting holy cow! My wife from the other room said when I told her it was a drum "I thought it was a motor running".

Is it a "four stroke"?

To me it sounds like a train starting up and getting up to speed, but then my brain is foggy.
