I recently picked up this finned Hilborn style scoop to match my valve covers. Really completes the look of the engine. Just need to give them all a repaint and add my green to the fins. I also need to get my intake painted.

This was earlier today, I have only driven it 10 times in the last 18 months, the engine has almost 14K since Oct 2014



Getting ready to put in a new wire harness and do some much needed cleaning and repairs, I miss driving it every day
