  1. I did a little snooping on his web site. This guy has some serious talent and engine-uity. (Pun intended). Nice shop, neat trailer and engine stand. Very cool. I wish I was closer, I would be a pest.

  4. Please visit my homepage and have a look at my creation. The valve cover is about 8 foot 4 (2,5meter). I have spend over 12,500 hours to build this engine. Then I will build a car around it. In 1930's style. The car will be about 21 feet long (6,3meter). Watch the resent movies at the BOTTOM of the page called TIDNINGAR-TV-RADIO. www(dot)sweet16(dot)se
