      It only took five years of on-again, off-again effort, but the engine for the hot 1954 Ferrari v12 rod is finally starting to take shape.

      Hope to have the exhaust installed in the next day or two.

      (Sorry about the crappy photos... Still trying to figure out how to take a decent detail shot with the iPhone.)

      Andy.

    The block, cam covers and superchargers are from the Arno XI kit. The rest is scratch built 1954 Ferrari v12 .

    Chassisdude - I have no idea what to do with it. For years I was planning to use it in a 1929 Ford hot 1954 Ferrari v12 rod to be called Enzo's Revenge. Now I'm not sure.

    I got the exhaust installed last night, dropped in the spark plugs and started the wiring and realized that this beast is getting out of control.

    Keep in mind that this engine never existed in reality so whatever I put it in will be a product of my imagination. The thing also weighs nearly 16 pounds so whatever I put it in will have to have brass or aluminum frame rails.

    I may just finish it and display it as is. It's so wild I'm not sure I want to even put a car around it.

    What do you think? Hot 1954 Ferrari v12 rod? Salt Flats racer? Fifties-era Indy car? I'm open to ideas at this point.

    Here are some new shots from last night...

    Actually I think its a stand alone Beauty!!! The engineering is so cool ... Maybe just a really cool conversation pc...Its so unique and so Plausible (and so heavy!!) Dont know of a body that would be worthy to be honest... Beautiful workmanship and imagination man..If you do decide to put in a set of frame rails I would hope it would be and open engine bay to this thing can shine!!!

    [B]IF[/B] you put it in anything it needs to be something totally unique and beautiful. Maybe a 1928 Pierce Arrow Limosine or something of that nature. It would have to be just as spectacular as the engine. Otherwise put it in a case and show it off the way it sits! it is beautiful as it stands Andy.

    Hi Andy-
    Nice to see you back on the forum. Great looking engine with your scratch-building chops! I would love to see you build this engine into a wing-tank Bonneville racer. You could take off the top and display engine/chassis/cockpit.

    As I look at it I think I'll display it stand-alone. I love the idea of a belly tanker but it's way too big. With the velocity stacks installed its enormous. Will show finished pics tonight.

    The one downside to finishing a project is trying to figure out what to build next.
