X2 with Nailhead. The TPI did what it was designed to do at the time is was built, and did it well.
80s cars lacked any power at all and the way to sell a performance car was to build it to run stop light to stoplight. The TPI works well to build torque and doesnt need to rev high to do it. That would also allow pretty decent mileage if just cruising.
They also look pretty cool , especially in street rods when some of the stuff is polished up.
Not my cup of tea, but I allways enjoy seeing them at the car show.
Helping a fellow hotrodder is important. If you dont like the build ...dont post.
Negativity usually comes from within someone who is unhappy with themself, so they try to make others unhappy , so they arent alone. Pretty sad.
