    Eric,

    Thanks for driving (in the pouring down rain) over to my place.

    The Boxer and Fiat enjoyed meeting your new 612!

    Great looking truck! You need to pull that Chevy motor out of it though... You need a built Flathead! Flathead's are way cool!

    Ford's should have Ford motors!

    It was pretty funny seeing the 612 alongside the Boxer. Quite a contrast.

    Thanks!

    I agree it should have a Ford engine. We went with the SBC because we wanted a reliable tow vehicle (it tows our '15 Ford Touring car to shows). It works well for that, and was cheap to do. Building a nice flathead would have cost a fair bit more, and still not have given us a relialbe tow vehicle.

    My plan is to build up both a flathead motor and a totally radical small block Ford motor. I can't decide between the two, so I may just build both and swap em out as the mood strikes (or I break one).
