  9. Nuttin’ wrong w/these. I knew I’d miss at least one option.

    If this morphs into “Show Yer SBC
    Valve Covers”, fine by me.

    My second choice^^^^^
    I had a pair years ago that had been on an l79 that had a battery explosion and at the time I had not yet gained an appreciation for patina like those above so I sold them.

    Though many would call those valve covers "wallhanger" quality, I think they would look great on the right car.

    I'll take that as a "like" then!
    No need for polls, in my view the "like like like like like like like like"
    button that people overuse just allows them to be lazy.
    Besides,
    people need to learn how to put more than two words together.
    Maybe there should be a "sticky" poll for that!
    Rant over.

  28. I like all shown so far except those oddball Almquist covers. I see nobody has mentioned those new style covers with the fins running vertical instead of horizontal.
