    Going off of @Roothawg 's post about the sexiest hub caps ever, what do you think are the sexiest Valve covers ever? For me it's '56-'57 Lincoln valve covers or Thickstun Valve covers for the flat head.

    '56-'57 Lincoln

    The Thickstuns are technically valve cover (head) valve covers.

    Right?

    Did I miss something? The only one I see with anybody holding it isn't a 348/409. It isn't even a Chevy cover.
    Must be one of them 348 SOHC mystery motors!:rolleyes:

    Bought a set like that 100 years ago. Thought they were cast, pissed me off, took them back.

    The Corvette and T-bird valve covers shown above are my all time favorites and always have been. I also like Moon’s no-name covers.

    Whats equally impressive, ( besides the gal posing} are the signatures on the cover.
    Phil Bonner, Connie Kalitta, Butch Leal, Dick Brannan,Tommy Grove.... to name a few
    Talk about the ultimate wall hanger!
