Can't say that I'm a fan of the huffer sticking through the bonnet ( a bit too 60s era Ed Roth for my taste) but there's something about the lower stance that's appealing.

I saw the car at SEMA a few years ago and that is possibly where the picture was taken because it was shown outside. As stated above, there is some nice work in the car but I would have preferred a couple hair dryers and keeping it under the hood. The blower takes away from that gorgeous grille.

I have often wondered if a Rolls Royce V8 would fot in a B.

Here is a link to another sacred one:

Scroll down the page and you will find some detailed pics of a Roller being converted to proper engine tech !

The guy used to have a blown V8 in a Skoda (pics also in the same link)

Excellent!!

There is some really excellent work on the cars and bikes in that link.
It is great to see that people are not afraid to modify a Roller

I'd love to have the skills, knowledge and cash available to do one.
