Ok, in a magazine i happened to be looking at, there is an article on doin some easy fab stuff. It's for exhaust and this is one of the pix with the article.
Ok, I look at this pic and I see a cast iron connecting rod welded (Mig it looks like) to a steel frame. Then with a plate welded to the other end. I DON'T CARE IF THIS IS A TEST STAND OR WHATEVER, but that setup is the most dangerous thing i have seen in a long time.
First off rigid mouting a small block chevy into a hot rod frame is dumb, but using a cast iron piece and welding it to steel is a RECIPE FOR FAILURE.
Now, i have rigged all kinds of shit in my life, and i was hoping that this wasn't a real car.
but low and behold, next page, this is a complete car.
Who ever decided that this was a good idea to put into print is fuckin crazy. Am I wrong?
I don't think so.
