What's with the red distributor cap? Don't they make those in polished aluminum, haha. Wow! Awesome, beautiful job. And I'm sure it runs as good as it looks.

I must admit, EAST Tennessee is "on the map" first!

I called the First Lady to my laptop and told her, "see what they are doing in East Tennessee" whereby she finally "got it." She told me if my 545 looks NEARLY that good, all my expenditures (12,000$ and counting) on the motor will be forgiven.

THANKS for the post - - that motor is REALLY looking good!
