I know! I know!

It was early practice for today's new crop of heart surgeons.

The engine & trans were inserted through the exhaust pipe!

OK guys I've tortured you long enough. I'm going to be driving all day today. San Diego to Grass Valley with a stop at the Peterson Museum on the way.

If you had gone through you stacks of the Hotrodder's bible, Hot Rod Magazine all the way way back to Feb. 2012, you would have found a articale about The 50th anniversary of the Cobra. Check out the innovative way they stuffed those little A C Ace bodies with that Detroit iron! Pretty neat huh? ( forehead smack and collective " duh" appropriate at this point!

Somebody else pick up the thread now, I'm off to the Peterson!

Grass Valley huh? Why Grass Valley? I ask because my brother lives there.

Don't miss the Towe Museum http://calautomuseum.org/ In Sacramento. The only place you will see a real Shelby AC Cobra that is un-restored with a few small dents even. And for a little more upper class in art, the Crocker Museum of art just a few miles from there http://www.crockerartmuseum.org/ I really enjoyed it. Some SPECTACULAR art there.

I am not kidding, I have been to Peterson and Towe, they are both fine museums and Peterson sure has a much nicer facility. But the Towe has way more cars that the average person has dreamed of but has been just out of range, you know what I mean? The Peterson has many cars, movie cars, VERY expensive exotics and dream cars from the big three, stuff like that. Cars that the average person could never own, not ten years ago not thirty years ago, they are out of reach kinda cars. Which is cool and I love it. But just to give you an idea of what Towe is, more of a "working mans" museum with cars that we still couldn't afford but within reach if we REALLY wanted. Things like the original Cobra, I remember looking at a real Cobra that was for sale almost like I could buy it. Seeing one in that kinda "used car lot" sort of condition is wild. They also have some cool things like Flat head Ford cut away motor and stuff like that. A really funky industrial storage building like facility but damn I enjoyed it.

I do dig the interesting installation of the motor by the way. Very cool, they WERE doing an engine swap, a hot rod engine swap.

It's anyones floor now, ask a question someone!

I live in Grass Valley and probably know your brother. Small town. Yes I've been to both of those museums ane they are wonderful. Interestingly enough I visited the museum that became the Towe in Sacramento years ago when it was in it's original location. Deer Lodge, MT. Pretty impressive collection of Fords. The collection was complete then. As I remember after it was re-located to Sacramento it fell on hard times and some of the cars were sold off.
One of the premier automobile museums in CA. is the BlackHawk in Danville, CA. If you haven't been there you must. Magnificent! If you do go, view the B.A.T. cars and I'll tell you a story about me and the B.A.T.'s.

I read every word in Hot Rod including the ads every month but I didn't remember the article, good idea enjoy the museum.

If you have a flag lets raise them to half mast in memory of Carroll Shelby, I am not a Ford fan by any means but this man was an engineering and marketing genious and didn't have a degree in either. He and Smokey Yunic and Zora Arkus Duntov are the reason we enjoy a lot of the cars and equipment we have today.

Really, my brother owns Centerville auto repair ring any bells? Oh heck yes I have been to BlackHawk, what a spectacular place it is,hell the shopping mall that it is attached to is a treat for this hick. But yes, I have been there many times, most recently this past Nov for a Bay area autobody association model truck contest.

Ok, I am taking over.

What is this bracket? 1 hint, it's upside down.
I haven't worked on one of these cars in years but walking around the swap meet last weekend I was blown away at how many little pieces of these old cars I knew.

Easy one it is a qxzwqmptyrxvqwer when it is upside down. I love old tools and parts as well better if I know what it is. Have you weighed it, can you make a profit if you sell it for scrap?

This braket is on the outside of the car, if you are as anal as I am about these old cars you can tell me what it is. No kidding, I saw a couple laying on the ground at the last swap meet and I knew what they were, I am that mental.

Are they truly upside down? How many are used per vehicle?
