Girlfriend wanted a wine rack.

Ha guys. Here's a good example of why you never throw anything away. It can always b used for something. Girlfriend wanted a wine rack and I had too much stuff taking up room in my garage. So took apart the 326 brought it to the machine shop had it boiled and cleaned then brought it home painted it and through it up on a table and wala. She gets a wine rack and I get an engine in my kitchen.

Nice.
But for future reference, it's Viola.
It's French.

Very nice. Assume those are fine wines, like Annie Greensprings and Boone's Farm. Matt

Ummm, for YOUR future reference dude, it's spelled voila'. A viola would be a stringed instrument a little smaller than a violin.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Love the wine rack Bobby and I applaud the efforts of all mankind to get women to allow us to decorate any area not called a garage.

Since we're going there, actually, it's spelled voilą with an a-grave instead of a regular a. An a-grave is the a with the accent mark which is used in several languages; in this case, French. A viola is actually larger and lower pitched than a violin.

And to think we simply educated people about cars.

That little mark above the "a" is called "accent-grave" to be technical.
If it slanted the other directions, it is called "accent-aigu."

The grave accent was first used in the polytonic orthography of Ancient Greek to mark a lower pitch than the high pitch of the acute accent.

French uses the accent on three letters (a, e, and u), but only with e does it serve to indicate a pronunciation change. The grave accent on the letters a and u has no effect on pronunciation and only serves to distinguish homonyms that are otherwise spelled the same. In French, the acute is used only on é. It is known as accent aigu and the accent marks do not imply stress on the vowel in French.

Voilą is sometimes used in English, and for this reason it's often written voila . This is acceptable in English, which tends to lose accents on words borrowed from other languages, but it's not acceptable in French.

wah-LA was perfectly acceptable back in the (Roman Empire) day. V's always pronounced as W. Vini, vidi, vici...

"Vwala" is an Anglicized spelling of voilą.

WALLA is an acronym, abbreviation or slang word for the French word Voila......and then you simply tighten the rocker arm nut down and your done.

I am thinking that this wine rack was your idea....

It doesn't have nitrous. It has cubic inches.
