Wotta blast! Pictures of “my” car! I bought that wonderful McKee Cro-Sal Armco twin-turbo alloy Olds 4-wd confection in the mid-’70s for about $10k. Wish I’d sprung another couple grand for the aluminum trailer because the car was huge. We rebuilt the automatic tranny’s oil pump—I think the shaft was just supported at one end, or something like that. We backed the boost down as far as possible and I ran it at Hallet once. Fun. The car had perfect built-in drift: At the limit, it would move sideways very gently. Couldn’t begin to kick the tail out and very difficult to get any understeer whatsoever. If I lived near any major racing venues, I’d have kept it for the wonderful toy it was.
