Clearing The Cylinders

It's that miraculous barn find you always hear about. A local drag strip warrior from way back, discovered under a chicken crap encrusted tarp in a shed two blocks away. And it looks like it's all there, too. How awesome is that?

After a few hours of haggling, it's extricated from between the tractor carcass and the rusty bedsprings, and the process of resuscitation begins. Sure, it's a bit smoky, but what do you expect after six seasons of hard racing and fifty years in storage? The fact that the engine is even there to be fired up is nothing short of amazing.
