    Lots of them have been replaced with PCV, and starting in the early 60s they only came with PCV. The 50s-60s blocks have the hole in the back for the road draft tube or PCV tube fitting. Some guys notice it. Most don't.

  4. The older Impalas around '61 or so had a big steel can shroud. My dad's '59 may have had one, I recall him starting the car and giving a neighborhood cat a haircut one morning...

    I have a very early memory of our all white cat dragging its mangled bloody legs along behind it after it settled into the neighbors fan shroud on a cold morning. My dad took it behind the garage and it never came back.
    Little kid lesson that "shit happens", be careful.

    One morning my neighbor knocked on the door & said "I think I killed your cat". There was fur everywhere. When the cat finally came in it had two bare spots a couple of inches in diameter that look like it was neatly shaved. Didn't break the skin. Down to 8 cat lives.

    I went and started my mom's new Nova one evening, and heard a thump thump thump from under the hood. I thought "wtf?" and shut it right off. The came a long meow and a fluff of white fur out from under the hood, and the neighbor's cat bolted out and across the street. Lucky he was, and Lucky became his new name. I have one here who came in a couple of weeks ago with a sore paw and some serious wounds to his face and ears, and I wondered if he may have done the same thing. Anyway, they will only be there one time when the engine fires up. Surely they will never go there again if they get out alive, and hopefully they will tell all of their friends ;)

    That's why dogs are better, they sit inside the car.
