I promise, you won't be disappointed - just mad because you've found a huge distraction from productive activity.

The bare minium needed to make the car work. The essence of efficient function. I have actually had to work on this car and it is a pleasure. There is nothing in the way of anything. The VR6 "crack pipe" is usually a pull the front end off the car kind of job and on this I had it out in 5 minutes.

So you're going to fly out here and do an engine bay or two for me, right?

A hand built, hand machined, hand cast 1/3 scale Chevy 350 that runs on pump gas!

Th guy who buil it said: It runs great. The valves don't show up very well in the photo but I think they are standing on there heads next to the cam and lifters.The power is about the number one question I get at shows. Stock answer is after hearing it, if you'll give me 1/2 HP/cu.in., since it displaces a little over 11 cu.in. that would put it at around 5 HP.

Here is a thread on the making of on another forum I visit
