Here we have a study in comparative scale. On a 454 or 460, this monstrous B&M supercharger would look normal, but here, perched atop a smaller V8 of unknown displacement, it looks ludicrous... ludicrously AWESOME! Sure, the engine is probably spending most of its time powering just the charger, but jeebus, that whine must sound heavenly when at full snort. Oh baby. In the gallery is the teeny tiny but banshee fast roots unit mounted so high I had to look up to see it! Okay, that's an exaggeration, but it was at least chest level, at least. And look at those headers! Ugly and cool.

DISCUSSION

there is a small group making these cars in brooklyn. they take the whole 50's thing a tad far sometimes. occasionally they have a night at one of the bars where they dance to period-appropriate music and the girls wear poodle skirts and all that shit. their cars are pretty amazing but they sort of sketch me out as people.
