Long before anyone thought to drop a Cadillac 4.9 V8 in a Fiero, crazed engine swappers were finding ways to shorten their life expectancy with V8-powered Corvairs.

Mostly you see the good ol' small-block-Chevy-powered Corvair, but why do that when the engine/transaxle assembly of the front-wheel-drive Olds Toronado (or, heh heh, its Cadillac Eldorado cousin) is better suited for placement in a rear-engined car? Corvair racer UDMan has found a very nicely done Corvair/Toronado swap and written up a review over on Automotive Traveler.
