Bike: Bimota V-Due. Great in concept but the execution was so piss poor, you couldn't even be upset. The thing was UNRIDEABLE!!

Car: It was my mom's car really, when I was a teenager. Lancia Integrale EVO. For those who don't know that care, it was basically a street legal 4WD Turbo version of a WRC Rally car during the mid-late 80s, when Lancia completely dominated WRC. I had so much fun flying through the Swiss alps on snow covered roads on this little rocket.

L88's only came in Corvette's. (You knew that!!) This was a transplant and VERY modified. I have non digital pics. Will have to learn how to post them.
Yes, I did, but I am interested in the thought process of transplanting a very expensive L88 into that car versus building a monster out of the 454. Was it the aluminum heads? Building a 454 into a 468 or 514 would have been an easier, cheaper, and more powerful route, yes?

Don't know. Bought the car from the fellow that built it. This was in early 80's. Verified engine via stampings. Paid a premium because of engine, got a premium when sold.
