That morphed into it being a small Chevrolet Corvette engine in his posting. Still didn't miss by a lot. My neighbor's little blue '49 Austin got some press, and his faux injector stacks became real mechanical injection too!

Yeah, what I love is when even in a car oriented magazine like Street Rodder they will make a mistake that is right there in the photo, coil sprung rear end called "coil overs" and there are not coil overs in the photo!

I think you got off pretty good, nice little ink.
