Steve, thanks.  You are right, I would not have noticed all of the mods.  It's not my cup of tea but obviously is a very well built car.

Agreed on the Ranchero, and those aluminum heads on the Mooneyham & Sharp fuel coupe are pretty cool too. They were the first billet heads for a hemi, just two huge slabs of aluminum machined long before CNC mills were even on the horizon. Old school today, but still, moving levers and twisting dials on a machine tool was more satisfying at least to me. For sure I understand how modern technology is superior, but still, there were plenty of fantastic things done with the old methods.
Sorry for the thread hi-jack.

Thanks for the vote of confidence Don. The pioneers from the earlier days of hot rodding like Al Sharp for example deserve to be recognized and remembered for their many contributions. Sharp built flathead equipment, both heads and manifolds, then for the 554 coupe he did those heads and likely much more. In later years there were blower manifolds, timing covers and valve covers for the 425 Olds, specifically Tony Nancy's dragster as well as anybody else's blown late Olds engine.  Oh, and Beppie showed us a Sharp Weber manifold for BBC in the Speed Equipment thread. Al Sharp's career spanned many years and various engines, I wonder if he did his own pattern work?

I really like this one that was in the SCTA pics from Bonneville today. 8) Photos by Gregg Adams.
They must of just added Keith Black on the doors.
Is there any connection to Keith Black? If not, you gotta wonder how he would feel about that if he were still alive?

I LOVE butternut yellow.

I've had 2 cars painted this color.  Both were lemons, so never again....  But of course both were British cars (MG and an A-H), so it's normal for them to break down !

If my Chevy II had a black or saddle interior instead of blue, I would paint it this colour. But I really like the blue interior, so its gotta be either the original white, black or blue. Does ANYONE REALLY expect ANY british car to be reliable??? :o ::) ;D

After that experience, plus another friend's experience with an XKE (the factory work (machining especially) was awful), I'd say NO !  But my A-H was pretty reliable after I replaced all of the electricals and learned to check EVERY nut and bolt for loose connections - often!

Back to the yellow. I'll look at any well-built hot rod; any year, model, paint color, etc.  But I personally won't have another yellow car.  No reasonable logic behind it; just personal preference.
