    Hi I would love to see all cars, boats and planes powered by Buick motors. I have a 1978 Centurion Jet boat. I have also seen some pick up trucks and a Mustang. My boy is almost old enough to drive so I was thinking about a Datsun or Nissan drift car with a BBB in it.

    82
    Just had a shop fab some frame mounts (gave them a bare block and heads) and make some headers. T400 easy since that's what they came with.
    Ford 9in rear.

    I didn't know TH 400 was used in those cars that's big plus for a conversion. Is there much after market suspension upgrades?
