Please don't think I'm a bad person but about 8 years ago a guy came into my shop and asked me if I wanted a set of heads that he had in the back of his truck. This is the honest to God's truth I swear on my kid's eyes, The guy had a complete set of rusty,dirty,Black Widow ridden 65 289 Hi-Po cylinder heads. He was just going to give them to me,but I just couldn't do it. I offered him the last $40.00 I had in my pocket and he tried to decline it,but I insisted that he take it and he finally agreed. However about two years later another guy came in with a set of brand new in the Ford boxes 428 CJ heads. Unfortunately the boxes got wet at one time and were completely ruined. One of the heads was pretty rusty and the other in great shape as it was wrapped in a plastic bag where the other was not. He said he was cleaning out his garage and wanted to get rid of them. He's a Chevy guy so he said they were of no use to him, and he knew I was a Ford nut and so figured I would put them to use. I still have both sets of heads the 289's ended up on my circle tracker and the 428's are waiting for me to decide what to put them on. I know everyone is going to think this story is a little hard to believe, but it's all true every word.

Every day is a holiday if you love your job.
