    I thought that myself but I had a closer look and thought 4...:confused:...but you are no doubt correct and if it was a 4 banger it has an OHV conversion on it...but a six is very plausible. I was thinking the GMC Six but the exhaust is on the opposite side...perhaps it is a Ford Six?...

    Or might it be one of these?...

    Quoted from article...

    "Wayne OHV conversion: Wayne Horning began building 12-port heads for Chevy inline-six engines in the late 1940s, increasing compression as well as intake and exhaust flow, and nearly doubling horsepower to over 200. This example, purchased from Wayne MFG in ’49 by Jim Roper"

  6. This is some cool ass shit. I came late to the HAMB, only just 10 years ago. At that time, you were already legendary, but pretty much off-line. I looked up some of your old posts and was mesmerized by your abstract, TRADEMARKED, ramblings. One in particular referenced Zsa Zsa Gabor and a K5 Blazer. Although that thread may be the best OT? thread I’ve ever read on the HAMB, I’m happy you have “shifted gears” and are now sharing these great artifacts with us. Carry on.

    In sobriety I have learned how to be comfortable with a simple life and I have learned that there is more to enjoying life than the thrill of trying to kill yourself...
    I enjoy collecting things as much as I do building them, but what I enjoy most is watching my little ones grow up in a healthy environment..
     
  8. Good to see the duck therapy is working out well for you !

    Thank you Germ! This is a great collection, so glad you are sharing it with us. You have to wonder what was lost on those two weekend attic cleanouts that George Barris did. There are thousands of photos out there with no notes or ID's on the back, that makes tracing history such a challenge. Look forward to seeing more photos. Bob
