So a coupla flathead fans iin Saginaw, MI have decided that the time is right for new Ford Flattie block castings. And well, y'know, it probably is, since the flatmotor's popularity has soared in hot rod circles over the last decade. The last big flathead news (besides Ron Main's 300mph Flatfire lakester) was the discovery of a cache of French blocks forgotten by their military. However, Jon Hall and Mark Kirby can't decide whether to cast aluminum or iron versions of the block first, so they've enlisted Street Rodder to take a poll. We're voting for aluminum. What about youse?
