  6. Early Chrysler hemi, hands down.
     
  7. Any engine can look sexy with attention to detail. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I'm sure there are a couple of exceptions to these rules.
    Besides that, I really enjoy my 327 with camels and triples!!!
    I love a shotgun, a hemi, a mouse, and a rat. I'd give my eye teeth for Ardun stuff, blame ZAD for the sbc and more. Nailheads are neat, W's are sweet. Heard a 4.3 and an Iron Duke that would make you sweat from the compression thumping, for the dirt track.
    Just give me a beat that's easy to dance to, show your passion!

    I've wondered if those Ducati Desmo style valves would be worth a darn in an Ardun style conversion.

    of memorys for me.

    My faves would be:

    The Buick Straight-8 (like I had in my '53 Special...see my Albums); the 401 Buick Nailhead (the one that's in my INVICTA); the 361 Chrysler "Golden Commando" (in my '59 Plymouth Wagon); the 360 that's been transplanted into my '57 Dodge D-500; and, the 348/409 Chev "W" / "Camel Hump" Engines
