I should have taken pix when last I visited the folks, so you'll have to use your imagination, sorry.

At different times in the past it seemed like a good idea to acquire a complete early 60s Olds aluminum 215/3.5L V8 and the turbo 2.3 from one or another of the Fords that ran them in the 80s. It also seemed like a good idea to buy a Triumph Stag off a used car lot around that time, so you can see how things happened.

Fast forward 30 years, the Stag is gone and there's still no plan for the engines, so it's time for one of you to move these from our garage to your garage and let them marinate for a few more decades, almost for free! 

This treasure haul can be yours in 3 easy steps:

* Bring enough people and tools to schlep them out of the garage and into your hauler of choice

* Take both engines at one time convenient to my dad

* Make a donation of whatever you want to Hope Lodge for cancer patients @ Mayo Clinic. They deserve a lot.

That's it! Email me at ejd(at)

I would like both or at least the 2.3, unfortunately too far away.
