What? ! You "don't get it"? Then pray to the gods of hot rodding and ask them for understanding my son. A clue to what confounds you, lies in your first sentence.That is cool as hell! But what I don't get is why a flathead? Are they that strong of a motor but just doesn't make good horse power? I can see a shovel or a Evo, but I don't think your going to get the bang for the buck using a flathead.
