- 66 Cadillac Miller-Meteor Duplex
Hi everyone, just wanted to make an introductory post. My name is Jay and I'm in Omaha, NE. I'm 38 and have been turning wrenches as a hobby (and for a living for a couple years after high school) for close to 30 years now. Current project is a 1966 Miller-Meteor Duplex (hearse/ambulance) that I'm in the process of swapping a '70 500 out of an Eldorado into. I was originally going to try to use the original 429, and actually got it to run, but then discovered water in the oil, and after tearing it down discovered multiple cracks in the block and heads. Anyway, I found a complete 500 to swap in, just need to track down a few miscellaneous parts like an oil pan, exhaust manifolds/headers, power steering bracket, etc. I always have a few projects going at any given time, also have a bagged 97 S10 long term project (owned since 2001), a 30ft Allegro motorhome with a 454, long tube headers & dual exhaust, and tempted to start a T-bucket build at some point in the future. Anyway, that's me, and I'll probably be asking a few stupid questions on here in the near future, glad to be a part of this forum!
