History Channel's "American Pickers" Mike Wolfe picked Flathead City to rebuild his 60 hp Ford Flathead from a picked 1932 5-window coupe. After the 60 hp engine was disassembled Mike and I decided it would be better to go with a 59AB to insure better reliability and to generate 200 hp
History Channel "American Picker" aired the episode on November 6th called "Dani Smells a Rat-Rod" showing Mike's Rat Rod.
There will be re-runs on this episode soon.
