Wow. Great Pics.

So do you think they let the Betty sign the AMG plaque? She did all of the work.

How the heck do they fit that engine in an SL? It looks huge in this picture.

I was thinking "One man, one engine" as all their print material says, but she did do almost all the work! I would be curious to know if there are any other female engine builders.

And, yeah, that engine is a monstrosity! It looks more suited to go into a Peterbilt semi, or something!! And it's an SLS engine, not an SL engine
