One of the two cars is in the Historic Trans/Am Registry, sold from Fantasy Junction. Does anyone know where the other is (the #4 car, George Follmer)?

OK...help me out...

Have I not read over and over that there are shrouding issues using the bigger bore heads on the smaller bore block?

the engine specs clearly state: heads, 343 iron.

Clarification?

Follmers Javelin is in the D/FW area.  Basically, beautiful, but I believe is getting a close-to-correct 290 put together....  hopefully soon.

I do, but in this day and age, let me make sure it's OK with him to say....  It's never been a secret, just hasn't been mentioned in a long time...  Confused
