    Pete,
    Ya know what? His 40 pickup is the last hot rod that I REALLY remember looking at that ran a flathead and was still running back in the 60's. And the altered is the newest race car that I remember running a flathead until they got popular again.

    BTW, Why does your avatar have 4 tube headers instead of 3? :)
    Talk to you later.

    I ordered a new copy of "Hot Rod" from Felsen's daughter, received it, and read it - probably the 50th time I've read the story. It still holds up. Hopefully she can release the rest.

    "The problems in this book are true,the characters,places and accidents are fictional.The teen-age roadeo desribed is based on a similar roadeo devised by the Desmoines safety council and is described with their permission." Ouoted from the index before page one.Quite a bit of effort went into this.Good one,nevertheless.
