Yes, and no. I've checked Hemmings for a few months - but most of what's
listed as whole cars are restored mid to late '60s Satellites. Those are
the more desireable ones small with big engines - the '70s versions grew by
an order of magnitude (in size and weight), while the engines shrank.
To me, Hemmings always seemed to be a publication more geared for concourse
restorations than hot-rodders. My Satellite is going to be a hotrod with
too much power (is there such a thing). I'll be keaping the 318 - but bored
and stroked to about 360 with a Vortech supercharger. Rather than the ugly
brown it currently is, I've been toying with painting it Plum Crazy, or a
dark metalic blue.
> Umm.... you did check Hemmings Motor News, didn't you?
