An unusual package arrived... What could it be?

Holy Cow! There's only ONE thing it could be! Digger Dave Molnar sent us a BEAUTIFUL intake manifold. We don't know whether to put it on the engine or to enter it in the Uptown Art Fair! This is the sort of set-up you've always dreamed about: A giant Rochester Q-Jet sitting on top of a draw-thru Buick intake, cramming two atmospheres of air/fuel mixture into your Studebaker 185 CI flathead as you rocket across the measured mile on the Bonneville Salt Flats!

I cropped the pictures of this little beauty to make them as small as possible without losing any of the detail: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

But wait! There's more!

The body got stripped and then primed. Here's how it looked before: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Here it is being primed: 1

And here it is all painted up grey: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
