That is so damn awesome! Now mind you, I am no SBC fan, but this is SMOKEY for goodness sakes. I find myself staring at that photo just picking out all the interesting things. Check out the breathers on the tops of the valve covers. It has one of those big rectangular Mallary coils like I had on my truck when I was a kid. DAMN that is so friggin cool.

I will never forget talking to him on the phone about a motor he had for sale. He really loved to talk. LOL And I was more than happy to listen.
