Sounds soooo good.

Turns out it was actually an Oldsmobile chassis that was converted to a GN. I'm glad to hear they didn't gut a real GN for this, as cool as it is.


On a totally un-related side note, I got the GM Olympic pin that I ordered today:

I'm a big fan of putting diesels in cars that did not typically get them. So this interests me greatly.

Then this Impala w/ a Duramax owning a Lambo might appeal to your taste:

I remember seeing this a long time ago, but every time I watch it, I just drool.

I can only imagine the look on some Lambo owner's face when you own them in an Impala.

6.2L Diesel into an '86 Fleetwood. Not fast, but a lot cooler IMO than a 307.

Hey at least they did something useful for once. Not like when they put a TV UNDER the car, so the guy could watch while he was working on it...
