I wanna build a wicked custom, just gotta find the right engine! I want something with lots of flashy chrome and is V8 of the late 50's vintage appeal. Maybe a 3 duece set up or something non-supercharged.

How wicked do you want to get?

Allison wicked? It's completely chromed.

I would suggest the Revell parts packs for some nice and period correct engines that were released a decade or so ago. They are plentiful for reasonable prices.

I agree with Dale, the parts pack parts are amazing in terms of possibilities.

It's just a few miles north of Jacksonville.

I've only used Mapquest to get directions to make sure the GPS is working correctly.

Yep, the vintage AMT kit came with a REAL nice tri-powered y-block fully chromed out. I'm not sure if the Lindberg version of this kit still comes with it.
