      Here's my entry for the Deuce celebration. Dan and I started working on the protoype for this V-12 Flathead a while back. He mocked up the head and cast a few in resin Hot Rod Lincoln for me to work with. When the engine is complete he will cast it and make it available as a kit.

      Photo of the top side of the head...I still need to add a water neck to the front.



      Bottom side of the head.



      This is a comparision shot...Top is the R/M kit v-8 Flathead.....center is Dan's metal pre-drilled Flathead with acorn nuts.....bottom is the resin Hot Rod Lincoln V-12 head.

    This is a drawing of a Deusenburg.....my Deuce body will be built along these lines. Might stretch it and go with a dual cowl.....not sure yet.

    Great concept especially if you put in the exhaust like the Duesy. Hey, you can call it a Deusy Deuce.

    Outstanding work!

    Two questions (one more in the realm of wise-arse observation):

    Did anyone ever make finned heads for the Lincoln engine back in the day?

    And wasn't Commander Cody's original Hot Hot Rod Lincoln Rod Lincoln a V8 ("It's got eight cylinders and uses 'em all, 'sgot overdrive, just won't stall..." (never understood that part))

    Yeah, well it just so happens...and I'm here to say I was the kid that was drivin' that model A. There was thunder, thunder, thunder on the road...thunder was his engine and white lightnin' was his load......you'll have to excuse me, I don't live in the real world.
