    As I got married, and just before

    we moved into our Buena Park

    home, I had needed a car for my

    wife to drive. I picked up this

    car from my older brother.

    The car had been ordered new

    as a potential police car. That

    means oversize drums and brakes,

    the 440 commander engine, extra

    large battery, 383 rear end, and

    a whole bunch of other goodies.

    After a couple of years, I rebuilt

    the engine and we gave the car

    to my wife’s younger brother, who

    immediately lowered it, hung the

    fuzzy dice from the mirror, & put

    bobble head in the rear window.

    Quick story–he decided to clean

    the radiator one day and figured

    drano would do the job. He called

    me after doing this and asked me

    if it was normal that water

    squirted out in many places in the

    front of the radiator.
