SORRY THAT I HAVEN'T BEEN KEEPING UP WITH THIS BLOG AS OF LATE.BEEN HAVING A FEW MEDICAL ISSUES WITH THE FAMILY.ANYHOW I BEEN SELLING OLD PARTS THAT I HAD AS A KID ON E-BAY. IN RETURN I BEEN BUYING PARTS TO FINISH OFF THE FORD FE MOTOR THAT I BEEN NICKEL AND DIMING TILL I GET ALL THE PARTS. JUST GOT ABOUT EVERYTHING I NEED. I HAD SINCE I WAS ABOUT 18 A NEW SHELBY 2X4 MANIFOLD AND VALVE TRAIN SET UP.ITS THE SAME AS THE ONE THEY USED A LEMANS. SAME CAM AND INTAKE.PROBABLY WORTH A MINT TODAY AND THE WHOLE ENGINE IS BEING BUILT AROUND THIS BASE.IT SHOULD BE A NICE SCREAMER WHEN I'M DONE.

Hey folks, its late Spring. Going to Carlisle this weekend with old friends from the Ford Shop I retired from, and my son. Having a real toughh choice on what motor to put in the "Fylin Wop". Got an FE motor that I owned since I was a kid with real Shellby Valve Train and 2x4's setup.also have 2- 5.0's GT motors sitting. Torn between old school and newer stuff. I'm leaning toward the FE motor,but it has a lot of expense behind it to complete.

Man its cold in the garage. The ballasts in the lighting is so cold,that they won't fire up the tubes. Guess I'm going to get some 21st century lighting in Spring. All I do is go in the shop and look at the 33 and think what i'm going to when the weather breaks. You would think that all the years I been working on autos inside and out I would get used to it.
