If you like Corvettes this one is special. It's a one family owned all original 1967 L71 427 with just over 8500 miles on the clock. It will be going to auction next month. Should bring megabucks. Lots of photos at the link below:

On April 21, 1976 Cadillac announced they would no longer make a convertible. This was the last available convertible sold by a US car manufacturer.

So I am checking out the Hemmings site and come across this photo. It was taken in 1964 of State Street, Downtown Ithaca, NY. I came to Ithaca in the summer of 1972 when the city decided to close off State Street and make it the Ithaca Commons:

Today being 421 we should honor the Pontiac SD 421 - one of the most winning engines created for Drag Racing. Rated at 405 HP by Pontiac the engine would produce well over 450 HP. A SD 421 Catalina could do the 1/4 mile in 12.5 seconds at 112 MPH. This engine is unique in that it is the only engine ever sold to have cast aluminum exhaust manifolds. BTW - the two Carter 4bbl carbs are 500 CFM each. There was a single gear ratio available for an SD 421 car: 4.30. The engine's compression ratio was 11:1 and had Mickey Thompson forged-aluminum pistons.

Did you know . . .

One of the unique things about the 1966 Dodge Charger was that it had 4 buckets seats. This was not the first time Chrysler used this seating arrangement. The 1962 Chrysler 300H also had 4 bucket seats
