70 Chevelle SS Diesel - never saw this before

It never would have occurred to me to put a diesel engine in a Chevelle

Re: 70 Chevelle SS Diesel - never saw this before

I don't want to take any credit from the guy who built it but I don't see why build such a car...… I read the ad and it says "Quarter mile goes by in 13.3 123mph so yea... It's fast." … Well I guess we don't all have the same definition of what a "fast" car is!… Heck…a Chevelle with a well built small block can easily go faster than that (at a fraction of the cost)!

Looks like AMR #1!

That's sub talk for those in the know.
