1/6th scale chevy v-8

Not sure if it's a repost..if it is, it's definately worth looking at again!

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

That one is very nice!

Back in the 80's the machine shop teacher at Kishwaukee college, scaled down a chevy 350. Many students built short/long blocks. A few built entire engines. They eventually built Wieand blowers and muncie 4 speed transmissions.

I believe the teacher also sold "kits" called the "Callaway V-8", I saw one of the kits at a hobby shop in Somonok, IL.

kinda neat, but the ferrari one is much cooler. especially since it's attached to a fully working vehicle.

If he could make that Ferrari motor into a kit, that'd sure beat out trying to make the MotoGP bike from last week!
