So let's see them! and who knows, maybe your car will end up featured in a calendar some day.

My 1941 Buick special has a tri power 248ci straight eight intake and header set up I built myself along with the research with the 3 holley 94's - plus flanges from "hell gates hot rods " .

What lowering dimensions did you do for your ride? Looks clean! 

Thanks! I cut the coils for about 3.5-3.75" in front and a little over 3" in back so its got a slight rake. Here's interior and engine since I finished those up :)

The grill is just a factory '65 Riv piece.  It's got projector beam bulbs in the side marker area.  They work ok for driving around town, but I'll be hiding some LED driving lights or a full light bar behind the grill for driving down the highway at night.

Everybody says you have to cut it, but it went right in for me.  Had to do a little mounting modification, but basically a bolt in deal.
