    A little beyond the HAMB time-frame, I know, but still very cool too see for those that do not know about them. The extremely rare, over the counter performance item offered by Mercury back in the day. The Cougar Scripted Weber Setup. Only two known to exist in the world and I have one. The other one resides in Canada. I also own the rare 4V intake as well. Shown on this thread a few posts down.

    the title caught my attention and made me laugh. I just moved this weekend and in the process took great care in moving my edelbrock 3 x 2 for a cad 331-39o--referred to it as "the grail" in process.

    it's not that rare, but it was hard for me to find and I'm glad to have it now. anybody out there have some vinage caddy headers--they're like hen's teeth too.

    In my quest for an Edelbrock L300 3x2 manifold, I can't believe I found a P6 6x2 manifold instead!! If I was building a drag car, I'd snatch this up in a minute.

    I know the L300s are still out there somewhere, and I will find one soon. If anyone is looking to sell one... :D

    They seem to be popping up a lot more these past couple of years, but for me I would crap my pants if I was stumbling through a barn and found a Pines Winterfront for a '32. That is my after-market part holy grail...now for a resto, it would be a bendix fuel injection setup for a '58 Mopar. Thats my great white buffalo.

    Another one of these - the Hol E Terror exhaust cutout. My grandfather ran it on his Model A 'rod in the 40s, and then gave this to me several years ago. I've never seen another, and I have another thread going hoping that somebody can tell me something about it.
