Boy do you have a collection I would Kill to have!!
If you lived here in Jacksonville, Florida,I would have been at your
house day and night helping you with your "problem".
I had 3 Bs killing grass in my backyard, I am down to two.
But to the meat of the matter...
I am looking for a V8 215 aluminum engine to put in my project B.
You seem to be a man in the know, can you point me in the right
direction to find a V8?
Thanks a lot!
