You're not alone, Roothog. So glad to see that the prevailing attitude here is that traditional cool has it over horsepower. Relatively easy to make big horsepower these days... with engines that have been the recipients of decades and decades of development. That was the goal for so long... more power. And we did it. It's pretty much a known science now. We know the formula. So it's lost a lot of it's challenge and mystique and intrigue. It doesn't mean as much anymore. What is more intriguing to me, is that guys like you are willing to invest what it takes to bring together all the components to make a modified car darn close to exactly the way it would have been done. And in doing so, you've built a time machine. And a time machine doesn't have to do a 10 second quarter mile. And probably shouldn't, even. I always go back to... How much horsepower do you really need for the street? 300 400 horsepower? Good enough. Even less can be fun. And sound good. I've had old Chevy straight 6s, Buick straight 8s, stock flat heads. Came to realize I don't need to be able to rip the tires off. A warmed up 390 has good horsepower. And plenty of torque. And it's cool. Make yourself happy, Roothog. And we'll be happy for you.
