Hero of the Day: Duramax Diesel Devil

The Chevelle with heresy under the hood.

Craigslist

This guy, who knows nothing is holy. Into that old Chevy Nova or Dodge Dart a big-block should go, proclaims the muscle car scripture. Add some trick heads, then a nice cam and carb combination, it continues. This dude’s having none of it. Kill your idols, he says, kill them deader than hell. Here, it’s exorcism via 6.6-liter Duramax turbo diesel. You know, the one GM produced with Isuzu. Stuff an oil-burning, Japanese-engineered V-8 into an old Chevelle, and you’re good in our book. Hero.
