If anyone remembers the former "Chrysler Power" magazine, about 10+ years ago, they proposed a series of "how-to" articles called :"Wrench Along with Rich", wherein they would make "hot rods" out of perfectly good (or, restorable) cars. Their first "project" was to take a nice, complete, drivable 1957 Coronet 2-dr H.T., and install a Chrysler 392 Hemi into it, & what-else; I can't recall. Anyway, I, and others, instituted a VERY acrimonious-letter-writing campaign (including a long missive I wrote to the Natl Hemi Owners' Assoc [RIP] , taking C.P. to-task for ruining a perfectly fine/restorable car. "Rich" may have gone-on to screw-up that "non-muscle" car [trying to re-create the: ".... 392 Dodge D-502"; that's what those geniuses said!] but, at least, C.P. didn't publish the 'humiliation' of that car!
