Curbside Engine Swap? Have You Ever Done One?

CC 35 038 800

I assume that’s what this sidewalk tableau represents, but I make no guarantees. Maybe they were just wanting to show off their freshly-painted Y-block. But it brings back memories of similar scenarios form my Peugeot 404 era. Now, I’m really not much of a mechanic at all, but I did swap a couple of 404 engines, one of them right on the curbside, in front of the little junk yard in Culver City, where I bought the engine for 50 bucks. How about you? And not just necessarily curbside either.
