      The engine for The Revenge is a highly modified 1954 Ferrari Arno XI V12. Orignially a twin-supercharged power plant designed to motivate a speed boat, I'm redesigning the entire thing to run as a normally aspirated automotive engine. Originally, this engine wore twin 4-barrel Weber carbs. My version will sport three Stromberg 97's mounted right down the center.

      The two brass pieces sitting beside the block are the newly fabricated exhaust manifolds. These, and the piece between the valve covers where the carbs go will be chrome plated Enzo's Revenge - The Engine . The valve covers are polished aluminum.

      Andy.

    I can't tell you how great it is to be back. After a month looking at my Hot Enzo's Revenge - The Engine Rod sitting under cover and then a few 80-hour work weeks back-to-back, it'a great to be back in my shop and back on the forum.

    Andy.

    Tasty. But why the red block? Ferraris had bare aluminum blocks as a general rule, with black wrinkle-finish valve covers (or red in the case of the TR's)

    I'm going with the red block OBH because Enzo's Revenge is a hot Enzo's Revenge - The Engine rod and there are no rules.

    I'm not going for historical authenticity here. I'm rodding up a '29 Ford pickup roadster with a monster Ferrari engine as a bit of a tribute to the Ford's failed attempt to buy Ferrari. But the design, colors... everything is of my own conception. Think Enzo Ferrari meets Chip Foose meets George Barris meets Von Dutch. l:

    Just for fun, I've attached a few pictures of the original Arno XI inside the nose of the speed boat.

    Andy.

    Hey Andy, glad to see you're back and in the swing of things. That engine looks great. I can't wait to see the full detailing. l: l: l:

    Wow, I'll bet that had a sweet song!

    I spent too much time in the vintage sports car shop (6 years as parts manager). Should be a killer model when it's all done up l:

    I'm not asleep - just having to deal with some ugly issues at home. I'll post more pictures at the end of the week.

    I've also decided that I'm going to do something that I've never done in 29 years of model building - work on two projects concurrently.

    In addition to 'Enzo's Revenge', I'm also going to start work on a 1:5 scale full-custom, Old Skool chopper (100% scratch-build). I'm thinking something around 4-up, 4-out with a pan-head engine machined out of aluminum. A springer front end with chrome wheels are definitely going to be part of the equation. And for colors - I'm going to go with a nice pearl Enzo's Revenge - The Engine -white with burgandy accents and a leather/suede saddle of matching burgancy.

    Anyway - I'll be back up to my old tricks in just a few days.

    You got my attention!l: l: l: l: l: l: And By The Way.....I'm living proof that you can work on more than one project at a time....just takes a little longer. On the upside....when you hit a flat spot on one you can switch to the other and you can gang parts that need to be taken care of for more than one project when you have those specials tools out.
