Car Show Outtake: Say What?


On the first Friday of every August, there is a gargantuan car show in the little town of Monmouth, Illinois.  This year brought me to Monmouth and what a show it was!

Amongst all the fine specimens – highlights will be featured another time – was this innocuous looking Chevrolet S-10.  With polished S-10 pickups being routine fare at shows for some unfathomable reason, I almost didn’t look at it.  Then, the engine bay caught my eye.


A Ford flathead V8!  This is such a wonderful and creative inversion of placing a Chevrolet engine in a Ford, Toyota, Packard, etc.


Whomever did this expanded the conversion to the interior, also.  Kudos to this person!
