  • The Duck Run carshow in Gas City IN

    While at the Jonesboto Motorcycle Rally, buddy Fishbone and I decided to walk across the river footbridge to "twin city" Gas City to the Duck Run, a pretty large car show. Now, Fish has leukemia (CLL) and my right hip was screaming at me, but we were here, the day was beautiful, and we decided to just park it on the ground when we got tired.

    We only covered 15% of this fab show, but I snapped some unusual cars.

    This '38 Chevy was an oddball... "Rosebud" was powered by a stovebolt 6 but with the dangest carb/intake setup I'd ever seen. 5 carbs!

    This Model T was the highest buck car I saw there. It had a beautiful Jag independent rear end and every square inch was perfect. It had the biggest Chrysler Hemi I'd ever seen.

    Altho I couldn't get in nor out of this outrageously chopped T, my had was off to the builder. The suspension had good engineering to it; I liked the vintage wheels and tires. And, to my mind, the Chevy 348/409 engine is the most beautiful engine ever!

      This '60 El Camino was flawless! Other that wheels and tires, it appears bone stock. Even a 3 on the tree!

          Wow, You got some of the more unusual items, like that 5 deuce carb setup on that Buick V8. I never knew such a thin existed.
          If I remember correctly, the 3 two barrels came on the 348 and the high power 409 would come with 2 four barrels. The configurations could be interchanged to wither engine. That 348/409 brings back a lot of memories. A lot of foot pounds of torque and with the proper gear ratio could beat most anything in the 1/4 mile. Not the low gear 4/11 or 556 setups the small engines was trying to run but rather tall gearing. Like 2/90s from behind a power glide into a car with the manual transmission. When them small engines is shifting gears and trying to go, that big ol 348/409 was most the way down the track and still in first.
          ask Me how I know.
          I blowed the doors off of many camaros and firebirds with them tall gears and a 409 with a four barrel.
