About

http://en.wik...c_Grand_Ville

- One sweet ride! My favorite car and the one I'm still kicking myself for selling! I bought it for $2500 when I was in the Army. First thing I did was give it a thourough cleaning & buff the paint back out. We put on a new top, my wife and I refinished the Rally II wheels, had the Quadrajet 850cfm carb rebuilt, and added a stereo system (No, I didn't cut out the dash. Never would, that was done when I bought it.). The best thing I ever did to it, though, was to add an MSD ignition system. I knew it would help but it seriously woke the beast in that 455!

- I think the best fun I ever had in a car was with this one. Top down, 5 people in the car, doin 110mph down the H-1 highway on Oahu, chasing a Porsche. That guy was so ticked that he couldn't lose the big red steamboat in his mirror!
