Santa Claus comes to SoCal with a Big Inch Beast.

Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.

When he came to our house, his sack was filled with big inches. Cubic Inches. Not those metric liter things but honest to God American Cubic Inches.

Our Edelbrock/Pat Musi five-fifty-five crate engine arrived today from Musi’s New Jersey assembly plant. All I wanted for Christmas was a Chevy Big Block fire-breathing monster assembled by an 8 time World Champion drag racer. And we got it. An early or late Christmas present, I don’t know. But I do know that it was Christmas in April.

We were pretty jazzed about the arrival of our engine that we even videotaped the forklift driver unloading it from the truck.

This evil big block is going into our ill-tempered g-body Malibu that we call Grandma.

Already a feisty bitch, the addition of this big horsepower is going to make her day. All I have to say is: Our Grandma can kick your Grandma’s ass.

I’ll let the pics speak for itself for now, but there will be many article and videos coming about this project build.

For now, we have put our Big Inch Monster back in it’s cage, put the cage in a corner where no one can get hurt and posted a sign that says: do not feed the beast.
