                          LOL! Looks can be deceiving! It runs good for what it is, It's not going to win many races but it runs down the road real nice. No problem getting it into triple digits, it has some real long legs.

                          When I loaded the engine into the Ranger to bring it home I said to my friend Mart "this is probably the weakest Cleveland ever built at the race shop.
