    Couldn't agree more...

    I know this may be more info than you care/need to know, but NASCAR engines at that time were based on a 351 Windsor style of block and intake but utilized 351C-based, canted valve cylinder heads.  The cylinder heads in this kit represent raised port Yates heads, as can be seen by the extra detail on the exhaust side.  As Brian said, the rectangular valve covers, with eight bolts is a dead give away that it's a Cleveland style head, given the context of the kit.  I have owned several 351C engines over the years, so felt compelled to provide a bit more info... LOL

    Tim, I'm going to stick to my opinion in your Henry thread about "raising the roof" on your Falcon project.  I think to take it the other way, i.e., chopping the rear of the roof would make it a bit too cartoonish for my taste.  Addressing the roof situation will keep the proportions pretty well in line.  I'm looking forward to seeing where you take this...

    Tim, I agree - the forward roof line is too severe for my taste.  It looks like an excellent candidate otherwise.  Not having seen any pictures of your Henry chassis, is there any possibility of it being resurrected at some point?  Just wondering...

    I don't even know what to say, my friend.  I have, for months, looked forward to seeing your updates on this project and have marveled (as you know) at the work you've done and the skills you have demonstrated.  To say that I'm disappointed and saddened that it has come to this end is a tremendous understatement.  And I can't begin to imagine how you feel.  I know, with time, things will look cheerier than they do today.  It is, as you said, very true that the experience you've gained will serve you well going forward, and at least you'll be able to utilize (hopefully) many of the components you've created in another build, not altogether unlike organ donors helping others to live and have a prosperous life...

    Splendid work, Chris.  Super sanitary paint and so, so nice.  And your rolling chassis is fantastic.  Can't wait for your next update.

    That stance is perfect!  Your under-body bracing and wheel rework is very clean, too.  Very nice update!!!
