If you find one around Missouri, I can get it to you next spring at the Homecoming.

I looked for a good long time, then found one on ebay and it happened to be just fifty miles up the road. Complete long block standard bore with correct big rochester B carb, $500. I had it machined and assembled it myself, turned out to be a really good engine. That engine will run circles around the 305 V6 in my 64 GMC 1/2 ton.

The moral of the story, keep looking and checking craiglist, good info on availing yourself to all the vehicles that had them including canadian cars.

BTW, I still have the stock slugs and a new set of standard rings if somebody wants them.

In this context, I'm pretty sure Billy is referring to a Detroit Diesel.

Billy's Daily Driver is a cute little late-model VW Beetle, complete with the flower vase on the dash. He probably didn't want me sharing that .... Ooops ... eeeek
