Car guys are car guys, the make of the car don't matter.
I cut my teeth on muscle cars and still own my first car. The torque of those rat monsters was nothing short of orgasmic. Even so I can't see the prices some of these old cars are bringing. Hopefully the 930 will enjoy some of that type of inflation some day.

True story - back in the day a fellow I knew needed a bad-ass engine for his 'Cuda. Where do you think he found one? A tractor that pulled in the unlimited class in the county fairs. No lie, this machine had THREE blown 426 hemis!
Now maybe you see where my perspective comes from. When my buddies launched a big block the first place they would go for another was a grain truck or an RV. All of those ultra-heavy utility vehicles had 454s with headers and 850 Holleys as delivered from the factory. All that power and drum brakes ...
