i vote this one, very rad
Look at Mercury Charlies in his Merc,then say who has the best..
My latest, not too fancy.
HELL YEA!!!....Killer so far....Great work guys
Taken at Louisville in 2010.
P.S. not mine
vergil that is one very sexy motor. good job.
Them Black Widow manifolds are gorgeous. I envy you.
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.
Here's my old Flatty! One with 97's and one with 94's.
No Y-blocks...im disapointed. But I vote for Evel's!
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.
ok i will chime in.heres my coupe engine bay
here is the 283 my dad had in his 60's show roadster the satan's chariot it was had everything chromed all the way to the push rods and rocker arms
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 ?
The Caddy in this ford....
This is the 235 Chebbie I'm putting in a 48 GMC pickup. Maybe not the BEST dressed but looking GOOD!! Mel
Virgil- sweet flatty! But then I'm partial!
My flathead. It's in my avatar but here's a pic you can blow up and see better + one of it in my car.
I miss those pipes thay were fucking rad!!!
IF IT DON"T GO CHROME IT!! was a saying in the 60's about show cars that were way more show than go!. Mel
Ow they will be back on the car.. at some point..
2012 will be the Re birth of Live Wire.. Done fucking around.
I used to own this one......built it myself.....but it and the coopay it powered have left the building!
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.
I hope that Goatroper02 checks in with his Oldsmobile...... Unbelievable
Great FED.... Nicer Engine package!
Man I am glad it this thread went in a good direction. Nice!
