Re: Header Suggestion

When I bought my '41 it already had a set of Red's headers on it, they do throw off some heat, but it's all worth it when you stand behind the car and listen to that unique flathead sound.

Re: Well...this ain't good

It's called cylinder deactivation, Caddy used it on their 4-6-8 motors lol.

Re: The cars that built America.

Like the Hawaii-50 that was supposed to be a flash back to 1941 Pearl Harbor, they are driving a 1948 Ford cop car with an automatic on the column. Must be there are no pre WWII cars in Honolulu.
