As is often the case, your timing is off Mike! I saw not only an aluminum intake, but a pair of finned polished aluminum valve covers at the Albany Swap Meet two weeks ago. Thought they were very cool, and seller was asking $800 for all of it. From what's I've seen of the stuff, it seemed a fair price if a guy wanted it.
Well, I didn't make it to the swap meet. I got up early, it was cold, and remembered that I needed to measure for a driveshaft for the Willys pickup; it's one of the few things it needs to move under its own power once I fire it up. I guess my old muscles need to be warmed up before I do any bending early in the morning. I crawled under the car to get the measurement and as I wiggling back out and started to stand up I pinched a nerve or muscle and that was it; I was down for the day.
