Recommended Posts

i'm very happy to say, this is an article about my street rod. took 5 years for me to complete it, as far as it is, in the article. there are a few upgrades in the works including, painting it all one shade of satin black, an engine upgrade to 730 cubic inches and EFI.  just go to one of the links provided.  same article is on both sites. i hope you enjoy it.

Hey I'm right down Route 100 from you!

Great car!  I read the article too!  

I like the engine with the "Oldsmobile" valve covers as shown in the photo in this thread!

thank you guys. i appreciate it. it was a blast building parts and putting this together and the past 350 miles have been the best miles i've ever spent in a car. i'll see if i can't find or make a video that gives you the right sound.

tom, i like the "olds" valve covers too. they are for the DRCE heads. just not the newer version that is on the car. the bottom half had to be removed and hand fabricated because the valve angles had been rolled over to the extent, the exhaust valves literally hung out the bottom of the cover.  it's kind of the fun thing about this engine, you just don't go buy stuff off the shelf. you have to fabricate alot of it. i think they add alot of "character " to the engine bay.

thanks again for the great responses!

if you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask.
