Default My friend Kenís Model A - V8

He came by yesterday on the maiden voyage with the 53 Merc motor with supercharger and 3 deuces, she was singing! One of the Strombergs started leaking so he has to zoom home...

Maybe a couple of details about the induction and blower? DD

I like it. The carb mounting is "interesting" (in a good way) and I like just about everything else about it. I have been a sucker for '41 Ford caps for over 50 years. If it was mine, after I fixed the carb, I'd be in the back room of the FLAPS looking for a replacement for that flex hose, but that's about it.

Very cool set up! I really like the way the carbs are laid out looks like something an early flathead racer would do. Yes I’d like to hear more about that supercharger too.
