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. 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.

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. Show me how you're going to wall-art it so I can steal the idea.

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 .

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. 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.

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...

Might need the digital converter box to make it work.

"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.

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

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

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!
