I lack the vocabulary to really express how happy I am with it. You’ve built many cool engines over the years…as far as this one goes you certainly nailed the vintage speed look. The Porsche influences are a really nice touch. This is certainly my favorite of all that you’ve built, but I’m biased b/c it’s got exactly everything I want on and in it.PeteParticipantJuly 20, 2018 at 7:19 amPost count: 363PeteParticipantJuly 20, 2018 at 7:14 amPost count: 363PeteParticipantJuly 20, 2018 at 7:12 amPost count: 363PeteParticipantJuly 19, 2018 at 4:59 pmPost count: 363PeteParticipantJuly 19, 2018 at 4:20 pmPost count: 363PeteParticipantJuly 19, 2018 at 8:49 amPost count: 363
Shit is off the hook!!!! I dunno what to say.. Franz has built some really awesome engine’s.. I think we should do a shirt of this one…. an outline shirt with the spec’s on it…… 😎 There’s this guy who claims I only do shirts every three years or some BS… 😎
Hey! There was a smiley thingy after that 2.7 year comment… 🙂 🙂 🙂 But yeah, I’d take a shirt or 7 of it.
Franz knocked it out of the park for sure. And if I recall Tom Unke’s wish list it sounds like another vintage speed build is right behind this one….PeteParticipantJuly 18, 2018 at 4:28 pmPost count: 363PeteParticipantJuly 18, 2018 at 7:01 amPost count: 363PeteParticipantJuly 17, 2018 at 8:33 pmPost count: 363
Ha, I forgot about the rockers. Don’t want to leave that extra 2 -4 hp out.
I measured up from the horizontal cylinder tin surface to the bottom of the deck springs and got 13.5”. If taking 3/4” to 1” out of some decklid springs won’t clear the air filters would prop rod like this be an option? Really don’t want to do struts/broomstick.PeteParticipantJuly 17, 2018 at 7:41 pmPost count: 363
Perfection, Franz. You have nailed this thing. I absolutely love it. You’re a freaking artist.
No worries on painting the Fram at all; in trading texts with Sain a couple weeks ago I actually told him that I could live with it orange, but wouldn’t be upset at all if you painted it. The green is perfect and should go well with the car.
So other than bolting on exhaust this thing is ready to make some vroom vroom noises?PeteParticipantJuly 17, 2018 at 4:58 pmPost count: 363PeteParticipantJuly 17, 2018 at 3:22 pmPost count: 363PeteParticipantJuly 17, 2018 at 3:19 pmPost count: 363PeteParticipantJuly 17, 2018 at 10:35 amPost count: 363
