    HELLO ALL, been in to custom rides of all kinda my hole life. just got my first "old" car. a 56 buick special tourback sedan. it had a lot of work done to it when i picked it up. i have already done a lot more to it. the over all goal is to have a kool kruizer with side skirts and lake pipes. so anyone out there that knows about engine swaps, going to put a sbc in it. don't want the 322 nailhead. i want to drive it and get parts if i need to. any help would be great on this car to make it easier in the build. hope to have it all ready for VLV. been there 4 years now with friends cars. so time to take my own. see you on the strip...

    BadBuick, Hello & Welcome to the HAMB from South Texas. I've never understood why anyone would work so hard to build a really cool & unusual Hot Rod, then put a small block in it. Maybe you can explain.
    Good Luck.

    i like the 322 nailhead, but im not much of a mechanic and i want to drive the car from state to state for shows and hanging out with friends. so with the small block i can get parts on the road if needed. that and the nailhead need a total rebuild and has a spun berring. with that the 350 will get me where i have to go and all i have to do is make it look cool. so i hope you forgive me and still let me into hot rod heaven. lol
