Hi Rip VW, I am from Down Under on the west coast.

Don't forget to hit the like button for my videos.
I don't get that many hits or likes, but then again that was not my intention for making it. It all helps keep me motivated, as I do plan to add at least 1 or 2 more videos in the future, so stay tuned.

Cadillac flathead powered hot rods just needed a boost in recognition and since I had a bit of knowledge I thought it needed to be put out there for others to see and enjoy.

I did at one time make the modified cast aluminium timing covers and valley plates which are feature in my first video which were also mounted on the red Bonneville 38 Chev coupe in my video which took the speed record for these engines at around 190mph.

Buddy the owner of that car who is from Colorado and his crew did a magnificent job of building the car and engine and in my view created history.

I've lost track of Buddy in recent times and don't know whether he ever did achieved the 200mph target???

It is my personal view that Cadillac engines of the era were the first crate engines as we know them today as they supported the WWII war effort.

Knowing what I have just told you, looking at my video again will have more meaning.

Thanks for viewing, Russ.
