    You tube seems to have changed, I have no idea how it works now. Or I have gotten even stupider, that is possible too

    It grew another carby, had this set of 81's laying about and a few 2x intakes. Settled on a Burns, the single is a Burns too. It seems to like the twins. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1372593553.233694.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1372593588.334189.jpg

    BTW I did of course do the hot lap around the block ( about 4 miles) with the open header but was alone so no video of that. I'll work on having better friends....

    Man that's neat. Talk about a very early hot rod! Even more appropriate...a gow job. I like to imagine someone having a car like that in the mid to late '30s. In those days, that car would've been really somethin'...the cat's meow...blowin' off Cadillacs, Buicks, Lincolns, etc.

    When I was a little kid in the mid '60s, and expressed an interest in hot rods, my Grandpa Ted told me how they used to hop up Model Ts and how fast they were. He said, "You'd be surprised." I believed him, but it wasn't until later years when I finally got the opportunity to see some 4cyl cars run such as yours does that I truly understood.

    Good job cactus! Makes me want one.

    I had it out tonight with the 2X 97's I swapped. it is registered and going to run the Great Race ( of Gentlemen) here iN NJ. Gad! it has ome response ! it really likes the twin carbys! some bugs yet but seems pretty reliable. I'll post a new video when more sober.

    Cheers!

    PS : Halogen headlight upgrade from Snyders is GREAT!

    Just back from canada, momentalily sober, won't last long enough for a video posting. Been a 10 hour driving day. Need beer. No, didn't take the A, I wish. Trip for GF, had to take the "grown up" car.
    cam is a winfield/briely 1A, not sure of the specs to be honest. I was checking out your pics, that ride is crazy! I'll be looking forward to comparing notes with you. What is your head? Mine is abit of a frankenstien, was blown up a long time ago and welded back together, it's pretty scary but works ( fingers crossed)

    cheers!
     
  21. Sounds sweet! Great job!

    Thanks! Not sure exactly what head it its, but its very close to a cragar/miller but with a few differences. I've asked around and an no one seems to be 100% what it is.
