    Thanks! IDK how soon though. Poor thing is going to get side lined again soon. I'm thinking of getting another port a shed so I can keep it at home which would make it easier to work on in between other jobs.

    Thanks. I'm not sure I'll mess with the TA scoop yet but I had an idea of making an enclosure for the bottom to add the TA set up up top but I'm afraid it will look dumb and bulky. So I may refrain from it.

    Thank you, and I agree. I've been trying to find another but they are hard to find. I guess I did forget to mention in this thread that I traded my 354 for a 392 in the same shape as mine. A guy I ran across had a 56 New Yorker he wanted a 354 for so we worked a deal and I got his 392. I kept my valve covers, headers, and intake/carbs. This 92 had less miles than my 354 too. I was pretty stoked about that.

    No, it sure wasn't. I helped him put his intake on my engine before we swapped and he was pleased with how easily it fired up. I just wanted to get ti done before he changed his mind.

    This weekend I cleaned out my lawn shed (crap collector) so I could actually put stuff away and try to organize. I was trying to get the kids's mack power wheel out of the garage truth be told.

    While rearranging, I found the TA scoop I got from my cousin last year. The bad ideas were flowing and I decided to set it on my air cleaner top. Hmmm.

    At this point I thought, no the box the air filter would have to set in would have to be huge and it would look stupid. The more I thought about it the more I wanted to see how big this thing really would be. Saturday night at 11:30 I went out and got out the tape measure. By my measurements the air filter enclosure would only be about 5" tall and put the scoop just below the bottom of the hood. Now I'm thinking this wouldn't be so bad. I think it would look even more cool if the scoop was turned around facing forward. When I was a kid I had a lego car I made that was Uncle Jerry's car. It had a scoop through the hood as well. Now maybe it will become reality?

    On Sunday I was working outside and I had a vision. Since I'm bringing back the whole FSBS thing with this car, how cool would it be to have the original members names painted on the air cleaner housing? Some of the guys are probably still around or at least their family members might be going to rod shows etc. That is my plan currently.

    Last week I reached out to the Iowa Street Road Assoc. to see if I could get any info they may have on how long my Uncle was a member etc. I haven't heard anything back yet. We'll see. I might just have to ask Gene and see what he can remember. I found an ISRA member pin, and a couple of cups my Aunt gave me before she passed away a few years ago. I'm seriously thinking about epoxying them to the vintage cooler I got to make a battery box for the trunk. Make it like a display. Or maybe I'll get an old food serving tray and place it on the side window like an old burger joint would have done?

    I still say that the "box" could be a 671 blower! C'mon, you know you want to do it!!

    I don't like it since it screws up the lines of one of the most beautiful cars Henry ever produced. Just my $.02 worth.

    I seem to prefer it with the opening in the back.. the "taper" of the scoop fits better to my eye.

    what was that saying on my old Tee shirt?? oh yeah, Injection is nice but I'd rather be blown!

    I think it will add to it IMO. Project 40 has a hole in the hood and fat tires. Most sweet 40 Tudor in the world IMO. Either way, one way or anther there will be a hole cut in the hood. A blower is in it's future some way some how.

    I got the new to me hood scrubbed and got all the bird crap off it. I dropped it off to be media blasted so I can seal and prime it and begin it's demise. Here's another low 40 to help my inspiration. This one has a V butt windshield, which I wanted. I'm not sure now. I like that chrome divider but I like the crisp corner on the v butt too. His has louvers in the hood too. Nice touches IMO.

    I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving!

    I haven't heard anything on the hood yet, but in a few days I will have a big surprise for everyone on here! The 40 is getting a cool addition.

    In the mean time, I finally got something back to the car that never should have left it. The license plates. It's legit now.

    I also had a local pin striper/artist draw me a rendering of the car. I'm going to have him do another with no bumpers and change the flames a little. He sure does great work!!!
