Sure, not sure if or when I would get them on but mine were modified a bit by the PO.
Also I have a lot more room in the attic since purging the Nomad related parts.

The time will come when those are in short supply and people will be begging for them.

I'm with Mitch. I recognize the wonders of LS engines, but I am too old to learn about them.

 I find the concept intriguing, but is is way down the to do list, at least as long as the current SB runs rolleyes

What's so hard about LS engines...they all suck/squeeze/bang/blow just like the old school ones right?  laughingstirpot

 

My apologies if that's a rough way to explain the combustion cycle, but that's how a very good engineer taught me. Lol

 Not with a hair dryer on it, like sooooo many see to need now. Then they go thru the "blow" cycle twice...tiphat

I would like them more if they actually LOOKED like an engine when the hood is opened. YES, there are clever ways to disguise them to look vintage and that helps, I just don't like seeing so many classic cars mutilated. It's like back in the 50's when so many models A's were cut up for street rods. Good gawd, I'm starting to sound like my descendants.

If you don't like the LS or any newer engine  / turbo whatevers now, you don't want to see what will be coming next....motors  / power packs, not engines...stirpot

I hear ya, John. I need to leave this world before it comes to all that. IF this country/world could economically produce all the electric power this transition will need, it will be great, but vehicles won't be "cars" anymore to me. Just another electric appliance.
