I have a '40 248 that I'm using for fitting in, and hope to run initially. Also have a '50 263 that I'll to do a decent street build on, and swap in at some point. Yeah, the intake'll be a fun cobble.

A bit of back story on this car. She started as a parts pile my buddy gathered back in '71, did some assembly on, but sold to me some years later when a move made it necessary. After re-engineering'er considerably I took'er nearly to the street around 2005 , but swapped'er in 2006 for the parts pile for my HAMBster just before she would've hit the bricks. The friend I swapped'er to took'er all apart for cleaning & paint, but died before he could get'er back together. His son eventually brought'er back to me to finish whenever I could get back on it. So she's been over 45 years in the build so far.
Who says "I'll get to it some day." doesn't actually happen? Especially when the thing keeps showing up on my doorstep repeatedly?

As to "old race cars", what I have currently is "Barn Job 18> Flyin' Brick> Flyin' Brick II", an early '50s type HA(mb)/G(as)R(ail) I built with that 2007 parts pile, that has gone through three iterations in ten years. A mid engine open "rail job", a mid engine "comp roadster", and now a "side" engine "comp roadster" a la the Midnite Oil Special.
