Default "Pictures" 57 Olds Batwing Air cleaner

Finally found a rare "Batwing" air cleaner for my 57 Olds. It was rough, but I just finished restoring it.
They only made this batwing for the 57 Oldsmobile with J-2 set (tripower)for a few months, just a hand full of J-2 cars received these batwings. Then they came out with the round dry element type, for the remander of 1957 production.
Not too many of these batwing aircleaners left, since they did not make them too long.

I added the pictures, you guys are rough!

and the moral of the story is....????

A picture of this unusual item accompanying your heart-rending story would have enhance our collective enjoyment. Otherwise, I'm left to imagine a batman cape with a trio of carburetors huddled beneath its ample spread.

I found a bunch in a barn.
They were on some cars that ran when parked.
The Old Lady that had them,gave them to me.
Since I'm not a Caddy guy...
I took them the scrap metal guy who gave me $5 each.
I'm $50 richer,Did I get a good deal??
