Back in the day it was a new '68 Coronet..don't know what was in it, but the the car was barely streetable. It was the psychedelic paint job (like this type, I know it's not a Coronet) where all the panels were outlined. I got a short ride with this guy as a favor, but he didn't get on it to hard. I had seen the car run at a place everyone went to to street race in the 60's and early 70's and it was absolutely crazy fast.. Neighborhood story goes this car was always very fast, but he got beat by a Cuda and a short time later they stole the Cuda for the engine. I have no idea if that was true. Car was a monster, big cam, gear drive, crazy noises as it started moving, but a light tap on the gas and it all came together. Anyway around 73/'74 I'm working at the county Sheriffs garage. Had a Charger at the time, and the deputies knew I liked fast cars. One day a deputy asked me if I had seen the car in the buildings sub-basement. I told him no, I didn't know the building had one. He took me down there and there was one car in it. Yep, it was the Coronet. The guy had been busted for drugs some time ago and the car was impounded down there. I lifted the hood and was surprised to find it wasn't a hemi. One of the valve covers was off and someone took a few of the roller rockers, the air cleaner was missing and you could see this giant 4 bbl. He said that the car would be going up for auction someday, but I left the job before that happened.
