8BA= V8 Bad Ass....

Not really, but it made me smile. Today (while I should have been working) I rescued this engine from a field literally in the middle of nowhere. I've visited this thing for years now, trying to figure out how the hell I could get it out of the dirt & in to a truck by myself. Well today I had a plan... that didn't work. It took me about 3 hours & I damn near killed myself doing it, but I got my buried treasure.
