This might be a good question for Lukeh, but can anybody say what "salvage yard" flathead v-8's are selling for lately? A friend of mine who lives way out in the boonies has three apparently complete flatties, and with the rising value of scrap metal, he is considering selling them for scrap!!!! I'm trying to convince him that there really is a market for these things. My only motivation is to see these motors get to the people that want or need them. I've not seen the motors but two of them have been in a shed for years, the other is outdoors but "covered up" somehow. May not even be good cores, but I'd rather sombody make a cool mailbox stand out of them before they go to China for scrap metal!!!
