What's not to love about that site?! Yes that is right up my alley. I have wanted to make a model V8 ever since I was kid in the 50s. Some time in the 70s or 80s a guy came out with a 1/4 scale running Chevy V8 that was covered in the hot rod press. Cost was in the $2500 range but you could buy one. I don't think it was this fellow though 'cause his is 1/3 scale.

I found a publication on ebaY which is out of print but I was able to get a couple dozen back copies. Name is something like I.C. Engines but it is a journal of nothing but how to make miniature gasoline engines.

The technology has passed me by long ago but I am still fascinated by it.

I got a new Speedway catalog a while back and they are selling these model engines in there. I think they even had a Flathead.

I get the impression from that web site that he is making them for sale. I know the guy who made the 1/4 scale engine sold them but they were pricy, like $2500.

Hee are a couple more.

This guy makes several scale engines for $5000 - $8000

We have a guy here in town that worked 35 years in the tool and die shop at Pontiac Motors, I have seen his hand built ,runable, pontiac mini V-8 , its about 6" long , he also had a few blocks and cranks and cams that were spares , this thing is amazing. all built by the tool and die guys, from what I understand they made quite a few.

Nice!!!! I remember one of the car magazines giving Conley a very nice writeup about 10 years ago. I got to hear one of his little Chevies at a show. It sounded raspy, like a top fueler. Incredible throttle responce. I laughed and laughed as the teeny tiny exhaust hit me in the face. It was awesome. It was cool just to see it and to hear it run was the icing on the cake!
