Re: Poll: Which engine powers your 67-72?

This is pretty interesting. It would be interesting to have a companion poll about cubic inches.

Yeah, I'm just now getting things together for it. There's some pics of how it sat at my Grandfather's house in a build thread, but I haven't got much done yet.

Re: Poll: Which engine powers your 67-72?
