So I scored a pair of Vortec Heads for the SBC motor. I went to a machine shop to get them set up for my combination. While we were at it I asked if the machine shop owner would show my what he was doing and how. He told me to come on down and he would let me do some of the work. Throroughly enjoyed the afternoon cutting the exhaust valve seats and replacing them. Next we do the intake then the valve guides.

I love this Kaisen Foam. Made a holder for my cap gun and a couple of magazines for the center console.

Cover King Cover was for a roadster 33. I bought a 33 Ford Coupe from Car Covers. Cost $169 and they got it to me in 5 days. Really nice cover.

Bill, Can you help us out with more detail. I really need a car cover!
I went to Carcover.com and they show a couple of covers at different prices. None of them are $169. Which one did you get? Am I at the right web site?

There drop down menu does not allow you to select coupe vs roadster.
Hints please.

Here you go. Didn't realize the close names some of these have. There is carcover.com and carcovers.com. Two different things. The link below is to what I bought and they still have other options from $189 to $122 indoor and outdoor. CarCovers.com is the winner.

Greg Birmingham is making good progress on the matching Guitar to go along with the Hot Rod. Here are some of the latest updates he sent.
