1936 Cord Dash. Note bizzare gear selector.


Just your average Ferrari engine on the ground. No, that is not me. I have more hair.


Where the engine came from.


Flathead V8 engine from the Cord. It is difficult to believe how smooth this engine runs. Makes a W8 Passat feel kind of cobby.


Rearish view of the Cord. Look at the shine of that bumper-now THAT is me.


Strange occurrence for this shop.

The Ferrari's are nice. But that Cord rocks!! I love those old cars!
Yes they are.

Notice the little built-in steps to get up to the rumble seat back there on the rear fenders.

Very ergonomic!

The spray can isnt being used as a parking brake, is it? :suspicio:

Great looking cars though Sharky. I guess it is a little odd to have 2 Ferrari's in there at once, huh?
I think the can is there because our detail department manager is a little sloppy sometimes.

It was odd that there were 2 Ferraris, but not as odd as them being the same model in for the same service at the same time

Flatheads are sooo quiet compared to overhead valve motors. Similar to the difference between a side port and peripheral port rotary.

Scheduled maintenance? I see the timing belt(s), but does that require dropping the engine/suspension? Wow. What else is being done?

I always loved the Testarossa.. low, wide, mean....

Yup, engine comes out for timing belts. I don't remember what else they were doing-been a while since this post first aired.

Those particular Ferraris are gone now.

As of today, we have 2 old 308s, a 360, a Boxster, the XKE (being restored), and a Countach.

Fun fun.
