    This is in the bay of one of my current f bodies, I dig the day-two look in my classic muscle cars. 396, custom machined hemi breathers into the top of the valve covers where funky bowties used to reside (cut them down dramatically so they sit level). Machined out the moon air cleaner top ribs to clear a spot for the 396 fender emblem off a chevelle or something. oh the things you can do with a Bridgeport mill and a polishing wheel. Aluminum heads and air gap were cleaned up (lettering removed) tumbled and clear coated, different look. Later model car but ideas that maybe someone can use.

    Here are a few of mine. First is a `37 Ford V-8 60 in my Belly Tanker. Next is a flathead I built for a `32 roadster we sold a few years ago.

    True, but it looks clean and it's yours, which makes it pretty cool to you, which is what really matters.
