Here is my reason. My driver is a 1971 Nomad Sta. Wgn. ( its a wreck from a junk yard). NOW its my driver. It has a 468 with a 1970 El Camino front clip. Along with the 700R4, 12 bolt, relays on H. Lights, Electronic servo cruise control, Jeep Steering box, VO-1 cooling system, and a whole lot of other stuff.
Bottom line I call it my FRAUD CAR ( I have papers to prove it ).
Thank god for junkyards, Or I would not have finished this wagon. It is so far from being a correct 1970 or 1971.
It has the look of a 1970 SS 454, I mention to people that Chevrolet made two 1970 SS 454 Sta. wgns. To test a marketing idea. So I tell folks I bought this SS Sta. Wgn. from the " King of Italy ",
AND THEN THEY ASK, How much did I pay for it.
The way this thing was built, I think any type of FAKE battery cover goes along with the theme of the Fake or as I call it FRAUD car.
My one owner 454 /M-22 car has a side post , ( it has NO liquid inside the batt.) Glass matt??? Dont know??? I do know it has no liquid in it!
You must remember, " I am a few Fries Short, Of a Happy Meal ".
The mind is a terrible thing when you are wasted!
Way back in the 70s , I may have taken some pills
........ Now I am in my 70s, And Dammit, I have to take pills !
