Well.......my buddy Old6rodder coined the phrase and I'm gonna put it out there and see if we have many of our breed of crazy folks out there. "Flat'liner".......a contraction of flathead and inliner, be it of the four, six or eight cylinder variety. Just seemed to me to be a good term, even if I almost went the other flat line mode back in January '08. Seeing as how our build is using the mighty '34 Dodge 218 flattie, how many others of the breed do we have among the HA/GR bunch? Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, Hudson, Nash, Oldsmobile, Packard, Pontiac, Studebaker, Willys, whatever, they are some neat engines that all have their own following. How many "valve in block" hotrodders are still building, planning a build or just remembering the sights and sounds of the days when overheads were rare and the "flat'liners" were out there holding their own? Then again there may not be a lot of us, but what the hell, I had to ask.
