Hehe. My sister's boyfriend had a brand new 58 Impala with a 348 turbo. It would run the doors off of any 57, except maybe a fuel injected one which we did not see much. It was white with black interior. 2dr hardtop and a really beautiful car.

You have your valve covers right but I just remember when I transplanted a 327 into my 57 Chev a decade later, the 409 would not go. That was the same as the 348 for all outward appearances. (With the appearance of the 409, the 348's all disappeared. hence another reason for skepticism. Why not a 409 or 427?) Of course, it may have been the need for transmission adapters that were not available.

So I'll just have to remain skeptical or look it up. One or the other.

No **** Sherlock, but you could ask the mod to create one ~DUH~

But I guess common sense lacks on your part.

I only posted what I saw.... didn't look at the date codes on the block compared to the build date of the car, was only 17 at the time.

Can you PLEASE answer my question TW?

So lets get back on topic, what is to be discussed about the 5 most expensive bicycles?

Just to humor you I Google'd "most expensive bicycles" and came up with a different top 5 than you, happy now? I'm on topic...

10 Most Expensive Bicycles On Earth (http://www.sidiergo.com/blog/10-most-expensive-bicycles-on-earth/ - broken link)

Let me stay on topic and say I think people who have solid gold bicycles or diamond encrusted bicycles are as stupid as people who have cars that are solid gold or diamond encrusted....

What else do you want to discuss about expensive bicycles in the Automotive forum?

I remember that the 348 was a pig of an engine since it was never designed to crank hi revs.

Back on topic......
Off topic......

To you anything related to cars is a pig compared to a bicycle..........

Back on topic......

Decks done. Everyone's invited over for a cold one, even you TW. Just no damned bicycle talk.

You drink a brew for me since I can't do alcohol any more.

That said, what's the point of getting together if a common concern isn't discussed?????
