aaron, i calls as i sees 'em. the barrel valve just "caught me eye". it looks really good so, i had to ask.

one of my pet peaves with the model companies and this has NOTHING to do with any modelers, is, i wish they would produce a believable bug, bird, or buzzard catcher style injector hat for you guys. what they're giving you to work with is just soooo lame. again not anything you guys as modelers did wrong. it's just what the model companies give you to work with.

Ross Gibson BOSS 429 sold as a Ford Pro Stocker. Can't run OHC motors in NHRA P/S. When will they grow up?

This is going in a Super Street '64 Fairlane.

Edit Alert!!

Allow me to correct myself. The OHC engine that Ford made was the 427 cammer built for NASCAR and promptly run over to NHRA by the round track folks who thought it would be too fast. The BOSS 429 and it's derivatives still available today from the aftermarket builders like John Kasse are pushrod engines. I honestly don't know where I got the OHC stuff associated with the BOSS name from.

My apologies.

Thanks Dave, it came from the old AMT Thunderbird kit. Lots of scratch building to make it look like that though.

Here is some of my latest funny car engines that was in the Desert Classic show. The first two is from the Frantic Ford Mustang II and the second two are from the Barry Setzer 74 Vega.

Sure was nice to see these beauties in person. I studied them extensively. Really nice, clean work Steve. I'm looking forward to seeing what you bring to the next DSC.

How 'bout an in progress blown Ferrari sporting a couple of 4 barrel carbs with power steering & air conditioning just for giggles. N20 too!

Practical? Probably not, but it works for me.
