Couple of cool things I dug out the shed today. :)

The velocity stack was on my 48 Chevy pickup when I bought it in 1974. :D Geeez, I forget I have this stuff! I am mounting it up on my garage wall, it's art now!

The headers were made by Max Balchoski and given to my brother. He was over helping me and I gave them back to him, he is hanging them up in his shop as art too. :D

And don't think he welded so bad, they had been repaired over the years pretty funky by someone else I have to assume.

I took one of those stacks off my t-bucket, it's in the attic. :D Show me how you're going to wall-art it so I can steal the idea. :D

I think I would build a shadow box 'picture' frame for that velocity stack and mount at an angle - and if you had an old carb, mounted on that, even better - a Buick type Rochester, of course, but not a Q-jet. Then as background in the frame, a '60s photo of a Buick engined dragster :D .

Could always put it on your head instead of the tin foil......... :D

It would have to be on a rochester and I would have to drill out more holes for the accelerator pump like my brother did back in high school when he made this intake manifold. :D I wish I knew where this thing was so I could hang the whole thing up on the wall!

I was just going to hang it by a hook on a nail, damn now you are putting all this pressure on me and I'll have to come up with something else. :sweat:

I kind of like Ponch's idea, maybe put an antenna or two on there and wear it. I don't know if it will fit my fat head though... :embarrass

Might need the digital converter box to make it work. :thumbup:

"hang it by a hook on a nail"

Does that mean the stuff hanging on the wall in my garage is art?

That's what I tell my wife about all of the old girlie calendars I leave hanging on the wall. "It's art Baby!"

Not that she's buying that, she's just better at picking her battles than me. I fight for the calendars, she fights for more money.

MARTINSR 01-30-2012 11:12 PM

My rule is simple, if it's hanging on the wall, it's art. :D

What are the voices telling you to do ??????

starnest 02-01-2012 12:43 PM

I don't listen to the "voices" anymore, after all they never listened to me.

MARTINSR 02-02-2012 07:59 AM

I may just pickup an old Rochester and some tubing and make a manifold like the one on my truck when I bought it and hang that on the wall with the velocity stack on it. Now THAT would be cool.

I have always thought the tri-y header was an excellent design for a dd.
I would love to put a tri-y on the 4.6 in my 65 Mustang, maybe someday I will find the time to build a pair.

These trips down memory lane are sweeeet!

I can't stop myself from hanging up stuff all over my house,shop and any other flat spot I find.
Do I have a sickness? :mwink:
