Now that's an intake!

Just figured I would start a thread on cool or crazy intake's. Gotta love this one LOL. From what I have read it actually worked really well.

Yeah, pretty sure its radiator . My understanding is that it was pretty successful on the track back in the 60's

I believe thats the Ramcharger car....Probably the original tunnel ram. I cant see it working real well, but probably proved that it could be done.

Not even close to the ramcharger for hotrod looks, but this has always been my favorite factory intake. Brian should recognize this one:

It IS the team Ramchargers car. I saw it run at Indy back in the day. The body was the business coupe, and very very "fugly"... but it ran REAL good! I want to say it was a C/Altered. :-)

This car was built before the tunnel ram showed up. If you think about it, that shows you how advanced these engineers really were, as the prinicals of it are all there!!!
