A right angle drill is what is needed though. It could be borrowed or rented from a shop, a cheapo one bought for about $50 or you might know someone in the trades who can get their hands on one. It is at least worth looking into. An even better idea than my original one is to buy one or two reverse drill bits (the bit cuts when the drill is in reverse). If the bolt turned for you in the block then it isn't that tight and a reverse drill bit, when it cuts, can turn the whole bolt out for you.
