    [​IMG]Just got back from LA to see my new French flathead run and it sounded fantastic, which made a great trip even better. Mike from H&H gave us the grand tour of his shop and said it will ship the end of the week. Can't wait still lots to do!:D I have to say the pictures just don't do the motor justice.

    Lets see, details, went with 4 1/8 SCAT crank 3 5/16 bore (284ci) with Ross pistons, 1.5 SS valves, Navarro 3x2 intake with three of the new 97's, polished Navarro heads and the spark from MSD ready to run. This motor should put out about 200 hp and it's going in my F-1 with a T-19 backing it up.
    I'll find out tomorrow final cost and shipping. These thing are'nt cheap but there pretty much bullet proof. Give Mike a call @ H&H.

    HD, I love the two tone paint on your F1, is it a 51 or 52? Please post up some more pictures of it. It is some great inspiration for me to get my 51 F1 going.

    I dig the colors on your truck.

    I plan on doing my 49 GMC the same way, a subdued grey cab and bed, black fenders and running boards.
