Hot rod might become a reality for me. I'm thinking about selling the Mustang, and have located a '29 A roadster with my choice of flathead V8 or Dodge 241 Hemi.

I like the early Hemis, I kind of want it. But it was the pariah of early Hemis, my logical side says I should request the flattie if it's the right version.

Actually some of the Australian Hemi slant sixes are on my short list of engines I'd love to put in one (the list actually isn't that short. But it's picky )
