Special Edition Buick V6 Indy Lite

Something I made from some spare engine parts. Most came from McClaren Indy car program from the 80's. It now lights up my basement.

The cylinders are stuffed with Christmas tree lights so when you turn them on (using the cam sensor of course), the intake runners shine up a pretty blue hue and the exhaust ports light up a fire breathing... blue (red lights and blue lights made it all seem blended so I stuck with blue all around).

I present to you the Indy Lite

You wouldnt have more 'parts' just laying around would ya?

I know, I know.. It's been a while.. BUT Hey, couldn't hurt..

I'm thinking of building up my 4.1(?) Riv motor with a 200r4 in my Mighty Max 1-ton with an Accel injection..

I called a gent years ago through Hemmings Motor news and we talked long and since forgot lots.
Let me know, Nothing wild just would like the power there when I need it.
