  4. I’ve wanted to build a 57 chevy with a 425 nailhead for years. I had the 425 but no 57 a few years ago.

    So far so good. Thanks to my friend Ray Barnes, aka Searbee here on the HAMB, the 500 is in the car and running. It's a full engine compartment for sure. The drive shaft will be ready next week so we should know what we have performance wise in the next week or so. I Plan to post a video of the engine running some time next week.

    Smokey Yunick said an engine didn't know what name was on it. But everyone on this site knows the name of the one in their Jalopy. And why. And I always was of the mind if you build something it's your flavor to choose. 'Cause you have to pay for it, and you have to live with it.
