Death of a Slant 6

RE: Death of a Slant 6
Back in the day we use to build 6 banger GMC 270's with parts from Clifford Performance. Their motto was 6=8. With the right parts a straight 6 can Get-R-Done!

RE: Death of a Slant 6
I though I was Billy Bad Ass in my 67 Firebird with 326 when I was 15, but got my arse handed to me by a friends similar Firebird. I learned to respect the words "Overhead Cam" on a Pontiac hood. Of course they really did run all that long or often, but were badass when they did!

Death of a Slant 6
So there is a part of this story that endures to this day that I left out since it really wasn't relevant to the destruction of the slant 6.....

When the destruction occurred in the story, my girlfriend (and now my wife) was in the car with me. We were on our way to my sister-in-law's college graduation party. Needless to say we didn't make it.......I had to explain to my future mother and father in law that their youngest daughter was missing this family event due to a "mechanical malfunction."

I can also say that my wife helped me pull the destroyed motor out and drop the replacement junkyard motor in. Guess I got a good one as that was 24 years ago.....
