  1. These two cars were the successors to Ford coupes/roadsters with flathead V8's of the 30's and 40's. A racer in Portland in '52 replaced his Ford roadster with an Olds coupe and trounced the Fords. It was probably the same story all over the US on race tracks and on the street. The Ford needed an engine swap to make a complete package. When the small block Chevy came along that would do it. Then the '55-57 Chevy's and '56-57 Fords came out with decent engines already in the car and they became popular Go Fast's. Then you can trace the popular candidates for turning into a Go Fast up through the 60's until smog and insurance rules put a crimp in things. Then the Fuel Embargo finished things off.No more experimental Pontiac Hemi engines.All gone!
