, Well, I have a couple 352s laying around and yeah, I have that thought on my agenda, but I need to figure out if a big block will fit where a sbc has been installed.

Also how much of a size difference is there between a C6 and a Turbo 350?

I have an Edlebrock 3x2 manifold but I would really like to find a 6x2 setup. I have heard they are out there, found an add for one that sold for $400.

Yeah, we aren't going over the firewall with it, but it may be up on the cowl of the car.

Interesting about the sandblasting, so you mean the edge we show in white, etc. would be in a shiny bare metal right?

Bare metal. Just not to shiny. Only enough to give it a contrast line.

My mistake: I said Firewall, but ment cowl as it change shape so dramaticly from the side. On a car like this, less is more. I would concider having the ACME Beer logo on the cowl instead. Or perhaps 4 aces ( cards ), or a pinup girl, or a....

Or I suppose the ACME pinup girls, they used these three in their advertising campaigns back in the day.





What do you think of this one?

Speakeasy Special. Mount an aluminum drum on the rear of the car with "Hootch" written on it.

A couple Ed Roth Ratfink decals . . .

Actually we are talking about using some of the "dead" space in the trunk to make a place to carry a mini keg in an iced bucket type deal, run some plumbing to the interior and mount a real functioning tap on the back wall..... I have a very old tap with a tap head for either POS Beer or Pabst.

I was watching an episode of My Classic Car from Oroville California Gold Rush Car Show and thought I spotted Bryans 29 and 65 Special along with a 56 Chevy about 3 minutes into the show. The 29 looks to have velocity stacks at that time.

Looks like a nice show, over nine hundred cars in attendance.

Really, we were there, I remember seeing them filming the show (be cool to see it). Yeah, it's a really nice show, they have lots of cool shops where you park and the wives and kids have something to look at. In fact that is where we got the Acme beer can at an antique store a few years before that inspired how we did the 29.

We won an award at the show for the 29. "Righteous Rat Rod"

And yeah, we are now running an Edelbrock cross ram intake with 6 strombergs and the stacks we made from aluminized muffler pipe.

Here is what she has changed into...
