    Default something a little different

    Here are a couple of pics of pop's new street rod motor, just about ready for dyno. This part of the build has taken just about a year to get all of these components together and assembled. Dave Braswell did these carbs himself and are much different than the normal split dominators, smaller and setup progressively for good street manners. 604 ci, Donovan block, afr 385's jesel valve train and lifters, Marcella intake, custom Schwartz offset drive msd distributor and all other type of goodies.

    Its going in a 40 's era Cadillac convertible, so we thought that a six pac set up would give kind of an old schooly look, but with a modern hi tech twist. Car will be done in early march, Will post some photos when completed! No, those are not the valve covers being used

    Wow, the tri-power dominators look sweet.

    Really cool! Marcella's intakes are all a work of art. Dave Braswell...well, what can you say about him except carb genius.

    That looks great on that manifold. Im anxious to see what the numbers are after the dyno session.


    Here is something a little different too!

    Its a mid 50s caddy engine that my dad is putting together for a 36 Auburn boatial speedster. No speed equip newer than 1960 were his rules! Kinda the opposite of your pops engine! 6 deuces, mag Ign, log intake clear red wires and more stuff that im not old enough to have seen new!
