    This is the winner for me. Great color on the Block also, would make a great Body color..

    Hey Vergil - Can you please advise what the color is called... Your PM inbox is full so I can't PM you.

    The engine color is Krylon Cast Iron engine paint which is dull and then sprayed with Krylon Clear, looks almost metalic.

    For me Alfin32's hemi is really cool but I think Evel's cad has it in spades. That's the best dressed engine around.


    Here's mine for shit and giggles. I'm really proud of the way it turned out but it's no winner. '56 265 (.125 over) '57 heads, 097 Duntov solid lifter cam, vintage mallory dual point, Weiand 4x2 intake with large logo 97'a on top (done by Uncle Max), and polished linkage by Dickster. All of it is hooked to a '39 ford trans by way of a polishes vintage Offy adapter.

    iPhone uploaded the image 3 times sorry.

  14. I don't know who's it is, but this 427 FE on Wikipedia does it for me every time.

    Stock 430 MEL's can be pretty darn nice looking too.

    Rick Schnell's Slider is simply flathead poetry in motion.

    Interesting job on the firewall . How was it done ? Just half polished ? It must be a pain to do in corners !!!!
    Is it also stamped before to draw the pattern ?

    Killer engine Metalman, great detail, partial to flatheads also but there are some awesome OHV's being shown, the 4 two's on mine are being used as throttle plates only, it has fuel injectors mounted under the intake, tried to keep it looking somewhat as a carbed engine.
