Default Big block Fairmont?

I've seen a lot of bad ass Fairmonts here, and really like the unassuming sleeper aspect of them.
But I dont recall seeing one with a 429/460 in it. I think it can be done, since BB mustangs are everywhere. If you've done one or have pics, post em up. If there is a reason why it cant or should'nt be done, fill me in.

Jay Pearson has a couple of badass BB Fairmonts. Maybe he'll chime in.

Theres a guy here in Chicago with a very large Ford motor. I cant recall his name but I saw him at Byron. His car is purple and pink. Very pretty.Maybe somebody will chime in. I dont know how they got it in there but its in there. It looks like you have to pull the motor to do the plugs.

it is not a pontiac headed chevy. it is a true pontiac.
as for the BBF question. EVERYTHING that fits in a fox body mustang will fit in a fairmont except for the driveshaft and the anti roll bar kits.
as long as you are willing to remove the valve covers to change plugs, an "A" head will work in the engine compartment without any alterations to the shock towers.
