    I dig this. Shades of the Gentry Ford. I've always wondered if you could put a T planetary behind one--and if it would survive.

    Rod Hynes, a good friend of mine, lives here in Tehachapi. He owns a neat T tub originally built by his dad before Rod was born. He refers to it as his older brother. It has a V860 in it originally built by Louie Senter. The car was on the cover of Hot Rod the first year and was featured in Hot Rod Deluxe a couple of issues ago. It's bright yellow and can stay up with my Hemi in my 32 roadster if I hold it steady and below 75! Absolutely fantastic car in the same family over 70 years. Look up the issue and enjoy a very good read plus lots of neat pictures.

    Here's mine, had the 3 carb set up on it from speedway then I read Ryan did a side by side comparison with the Stromberg's and found the Speedway Way carbs are poor quality and that there junk. Sooo I stopped my progress for a bit till can save up for the Stromberg's. Anyway I like the look of the flathead.

    Hi im looking for some history or info on speeds achieved with V8 60 power at Bonneville or ElMirage and gas/fuels/methanol etc used would be a great help.
    Info on the So-Cal tank when the 60 was in it seemed to be 145mph?...Thanks
