Preferably custom, but just any good motor pics, would love to see the different way some people take there engine bays. I would really like to see some triple carb motors too. be it hot rod, factory, race built, v8 or 6, just as long as there a stude engine though I wanna see it. I didn't see a thread for this yet but I love engine pics, and we never get enough of those, so let's see some.

I'll start with the legendary R5 To me at least the coolest engine ever......................

Ohhhh, I think we can do a little better than that B&W photo nowadays. This was on display last year at the International Meet in South Bend. Greg Cone did a magnificent job of putting the engine back together. :)

I like the engine in the Bonneville racer down in Alabama at Barbers, and this great shot of an Avanti 2-4's set-up. Sorry about the racers pic, I was in what I thought would be adequate light, but wasn't.

That's the standard Studebaker/Stromberg back draft 2bbl. They do look cool!

It appears that both Cars have a pile of stock '53 to '58 Studebaker Stromberg WW rear draft top type 2 Brl's.

How do you think a couple of those would do in place of a factory 4V carb, they look freakin' sweet. wonder how three in a row would look
