Mechanical Parking Lot..then

I can't get enough of this thing. I read about the build in a mag. and saw it go to auction at Barrett-Jackson...(250 large I think) and I'd love to see it in person.

My blown hemi in an ongoing project with my '31 Chevy 5 window coupe... A GASSER project!
Is this injection still mechanical? If it is, how much hassle is it on the street?
I'd really like to have somthing more exotic than a four barrel on my 454.
I have always caught a woodie lookin' at this car!!!! Them boy's at Pinkee's know what they are doin'!!!
Thats the VW Plant in Germany - When you order a custom built you can go pick it up, you watch it pulled from it's stall and brought to the lobby by robotics. You can even watch it being built as you walk around the plant.
From what I can tell just from the pic that one's mechanical, you need three hands for each stack to tune it for the street.
You can convert that whole setup into a modern EFI by installing the fuel rails and injectors under the valley pan and the controllers under the dash.
Search the Hot Rod Tech Articles (or it may have been R&C)

Model A Ford 4-Banger Engines:
That was torn down last year.People were complaining that it was becoming an "eyesore"
I hope the hell that is fully robotic. I wouldn't want to be the one driving those cars on and off those ramps. Not much margin for error there.
Here's an interesting way to bring home a new project!
