Show off your vintage engine.

Vintage engine's only. What have you.

The heart beat of our pride and joys are our engines. Sure we treat them like they are living creatures by papering and even talking to them (come on I can not be the only one). We take real pride in building them and maintaining them and they really are a part of the family many times. We love the look, the sound and the smell of them and they are only as good to us as we are to them. Gentlemen... show us your engines.

You had some classic engines in your cars George. You're 1957 Chevrolet 283 cu. in. 220 h.p. V-8 must have been a real hauler. Lots of HP for its day. Big Thumbs Up and Cheers, Mario.

All of these engines were and are very reliable and dependable. The most get up and go was the 57 Chev 283 Power Pack followed by the 74 Chev 400. The best on gas was the 225 Buick 225 followed by the 56 Chev 235. None of these engines ever gave me any head aches what so ever except changing the cam shaft in the 57 Pontiac 261. That was an interesting learning curve because the engine had to stay in the car. I had many other engines but sadly I never took photos of them. Cheers.
