Great idea! Maybe the Meteorite Men have enough melted pallasite iron (minus
the olivine and peridot inclusions), laying around to cast into a Ford
engine block. I would suggest a 289 dropped into an early model Ford/Mercury

Dear List,
The interesting thing about this is the reverse: that a Ford Fairlane engine
block could conceivably be made from pallasitic meteoric iron, processed
with the olivine phenocrysts removed. What a custom car that would be at the
next classic car outing! Of course, if you have to ask how much, you can't
afford it.
