They will not fit under the bed or in the bedroom closet.
I considered under the kitchen sink until my wife out what I was attempting to do.
She also caught me measuring the space in the trunk of her car.

There is space above the rafters in the garage but I canít figure out an easy way to raise them that high.

Help! Help! What can I Do?
Coffee table legs. Hidden in plain sight!

Late at night drop them off at your Model A friends house! There is a guy on the Model T Ford Club of America forum that has stuff just show up all the time.

When I was in High School Auto Shop we had a couple of Flat Head V-8s that we could practice "rebuilding". Tear them down and measure everything and reassemble. They where especially good for new students that never took and engine apart or even seen the inner working of an engine.

We also had a Y-Block that actually ran. we could practice adjusting valves and tune ups on that one.

The high Schools around here don't even offer Auto Shop anymore. What a shame...
