I do miss the good 'ol days when an engine was something nice to look at and didn't need a cover. Honda had a nice stock presentation on the Integra Type R's motor with a red valve cover and then a insert cover for the plugs. My Eclipse GSX motor wasn't that pretty.


And you'd never even think of covering an engine from the '60s and '70s but today's engines are definetly function over form and are a collage of wires and plastics and most aren't much to look at.
