Tis one of them there front wheel drive critters with them cars where the engine's turned sideways. Ayup, them engines usually have a combination transmission-axle which connects to the front wheels on them finagled critters. Fur awhile there GM had this there insane idea that the majority of cars even the ones with the hallowed names behind them, Monte Carlo's and Impalas included, that they deem them front wheel drive. One thing is fur sure, you'll never see me race or own one of them cockimamy hibbity jibbity setups. [}:)]

I just finished installing brake lines on my 68 Cutlass Convertible. PITA big time. Brake lines were long and contorted in wierd ways, and under motors. It is quite obvious that everything was done before the body and motor went in/on, as almost all in the front was inaccessable and difficult to switch and service. Some of the fittings and tube diameters were different. I was not impressed.

In the end, it took me at least three times longer than my 1955 Commander Coupe.

One of the big 3 did consider - for maybe five seconds - the idea of an east-west mounted engine with the trans bolted to the side of the engine and facing north-south and driving the rear wheels.

Another reason not to work on those GM things--it makes you talk funny and spell worse.

Well, I ain't gonna toll ya'll no lie; the worstest blessin I ever did hear was when my Shuggah had to change that timing thang on my Dodge grocery gitter. Made me blush like a spring bride, I do declare! He said not only was the injun sidewurds, but thar weren't no dang elbow room, neither! Thay orta use American engenuity whilst designin these dadburn contraptions, so's we don't have to use so much of it a-fixin on 'em!
