    Here is a quickie update on the '34. The kid helped me bang together the shortblock last weekend.

    The paint is still a bit tacky. Note the kids cool look...

    Ready to drop in. This is the same basic combination that went 12.40s in my Model A, so the '34 should be about the same. I call this little Pontiac a 389, but she actually displaces 462 inches and should make close to 500 horse at the flywheel.

    Here is the '34 almost ready to get blown apart for body, paint, final assembly.

    See you next time, -Abone.

    Nice engine and coupe
     
  6. Really cool... I would almost be tempted to run it as is with the kid makin' that face to everyone at the stop light.

    Too bad American Graffiti stopped shooting 20 years ago because the kid coulda had a career in film.

    Love the project...
