Cadillac Northstars Finally Appearing In Self-Service Junkyards

Illustration for article titled Cadillac Northstars Finally Appearing In Self-Service Junkyards

I remember a time in the early 1990s when small-block Chevy HEI distributors finally started showing up in large numbers in the cheap self-service junkyards; those of us driving Chevy-powered heaps could rejoice at being freed from the misery of ignition points for a mere ten bucks. Now that point has been reached with the Cadillac Northstar engine: an aluminum DOHC V8 available for your personal engine swap madness for just $100 complete (on Half Price Day, that is). Here's a '93 Eldorado I found at a local junkyard not long ago. Hmmm... wonder how hard it would be to fit this engine in a Cavalier?

@Novaload: Dagnabit! Now I'll never look at that white sedan in the driveway the same. There. You just ruined my summer. Thanks.
