That definitely sounds like my Buddy's old car. His had a '69 high compression 350 (olds). He had to many cars and he fell on hard times. He gave me his '60 Oldsmobile, which I still have, sold his very nice '71 455 442, sold his '70 W30 (the car in question) and subsequently ended up losing his house. He does still have his '74 h/o pace car, probably because its missing a swivel bucket seat, and hasn't been road worthy for probably 10 years.
