I think this is off the HAMB somewhere, sorry if I stole your pic...
SBC in my 29 roadster
more traditional than most
Bluto, I'm sure you know that there is NO engine more trad than this one;
thats awsome ...
Here's a Caddy I have been working on.
Its an 1885 Benz Patent Motorwagen - the first purpose built petrol powered automobile and the wellspring for it all. Pictured here at Retromobile Paris in Feb 2008
Vintage I guess, less the air! LOL!
BTW, it's a 348 for the noobs!
here is my caddy 390 with and old offy 3x2
I have always loved this one..
My old Junk..
52 331 caddy...
That's a replica built buy MB but not original....... but fakes are becoming more traditional daily
I once offered to race one of those for "pinks" with this little Victorian car I owned many years
They declned, good job for them. Goddeu would go 30+ two up
Bluto - yes I know but it was so nicely done. Did you ever do the London to Brighton in that??
Just started detailling the 347 Pontiac in my modified - but there's not a lot available off the shelf so I'm making or adapting stuff. Not in this picture but I have just fitted a really neat fuel filter off a Huey on the firewall.
324 Rocket in my '55 F100.
Anybody have any pics of a traditionally styled Ford FE?
another small block chevy
My coupe engine. A '59, 348
Wow, great collection of "traditional" stuff. But, just because someone makes, or did make, a part that will fit your engine, etc does not mean you have to install it. The Low Ridders have to have every accessory ever made on their Bombs, Billet Guys have to have every billet part, etc. An engine, a car, etc should be done with some forethought and class. Not just a bolt on bling-bling whore. Some cars the owner will say it is done, others are not done as long as they can bolt on one more goodie. My 2 cents.
Here's mine. 59AB in our 1931 Ford Roadster.
My old Caddie Flattie looks good now...
