"Geronimo." Engine J-322, built by Hal Ulrich, one of D. Cameron Peck's mechanics, back in the 1940s.

Think I should do something like that to my 66 Galaxie?

Nah, for a hot rod you need to start with something really despicable, next to useless as is, with a stock engine that produces less torque that a gerbil running on a wheel...

...the Geo perhaps?

Honestly, if Geronimo had been built any time other than the 1940s, there would be an outcry over using a Duesenberg engine like that. I think it's cool. Must be a blast to tear through downtown Auburn in.

I don't have the Geo anymore <!-- s:cry: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cry.gif" alt=":cry:" title="Crying or Very sad" /><!-- s:cry: -->

And the Galaxie only runs when it wants to. Say if I drive it someplace and turn it off...... it'll stay there overnight before it wants to start again and while you are tinkering with it under the hood it rains cats and dogs, OR I could have it towed to the Dealership only to have it start right up so they can't figure out whats wrong with it.

Yeah... it's fun owning old cars.

maybe I'll photoshop the 2 together to see what it looks like.

I know, but I'm sure your nephew wouldn't mind a few more horses in it!

I sent you a PM on Bob Hickman, btw.
