Can't beat the Chevy 350 I had that in my 69 Camaro SS. Bought it new kept it 10 years and sold it for what I paid for it! Worth a lot more today! The 66 Chevy II 327/350 was a killer on the tracks back then. Still is. Always liked it. The 68 Vette you had was first year of the Mako Shark Coke Bottle look. Very aero and classy. You had some nice cars and must have a lot of good memories.[Reply to this comment]

Larry, sweet collection of Chevy's especially the original 1930-1931 ? Can you tell us more about that one. We all know 1929 was the first year for Chevy's famous in line six and I would imagine your car has the same historical six in it. To still have that 66 350 H.P. Chevy II would be something real sweet. Do you know what happened to it. Keep on Chevyin.[Reply to this comment]

AWESOME Larry......I wish I had the talent and skills of some of you builders. I'm just a shadetree mechanic who does the R&R. Repair of Replace. I still glue my fingers together with Super Glue and then need to seek the wife's nail polish remover to regain digital freedom.
Well done Larry, hat's off to Larry.
Wait, that was an old Doo Wop song.......
here's the link if you don't believe me.

I was ready to buy a new 1966 Chevy II SS 327/350 hp but I left college and knew I would be drafted since I was 19 and decided to join the Marines instead!
Then after I made Sgt in 1968 and returned from Vietnam I ordered a new 1968 Corvette thru the Military and had to pick up at the factory.
I decided not to get it after I got back from a 6 month Med Cruise and waited for the 69 Camaro SS to come out and bought that instead. War changes things and your life![Reply to this comment]
