  10. When anyone gets up with a few aches and pains, just think of Mr. Gene Winfield and get your ass out of bed. What an inspiration he continues to be! God bless him.:)

    Dale's 153 is also pretty stout. pretty close to 200 crank I'm guessing. that's good for a motor that's na with 2x2's.
    what's Gene's motor have for carbs?? can't be regular 97's if he's got 275 at the wheels?

    Never thought I'd say this but... you east coast guys got it going' on for sure. Looks like a ton of fun.
     
  26. I honestly feel that Gene Winfield driving that car is the most
    significant "hot rod" thing that will happen this year.

    Thanks for the great pics.
    Saw them on IG, but better in bigger.
