Beautiful engine !

Because it's not all about V8's. I'm guessing this was the standard engine for many a Holden family car for a number of years. The EH seems to be very much along the same lines as our FB Victor apart from the engine sizes. A very cool image mate of a solid dependable engine.

They always look so nice when they're clean and set out so you can see how they work. Great shot!
