[Land-speed] Ford Flathead

Tjhe rule is clear. "any production FORD/MERCURY passenger car V-8 flathead engine, 1932 through 1953, up to 325 cid." How would the French blocks fit into that? Once again if you don't like a rule there are ways of trying to have them changed. Good luck with that.

Skip, me too! I was wondering how all the aftermarket super blocks fit 
into this argument. What makes a "Fench" block unacceptable?
