Nice article on Billy Gibbons' 1958 T-Bird ... I've always thought one of those original square birds would be kewl to own all tricked out.  But the info on the engine is incorrect.  If the motor is a 352, then it ain't a Y-block ... it's an FE, like the 332, 390, 406, 427, and 428.  The Y-blocks were in the 55-57 Birds, among others, and included the 312, 292, 272, and so forth. Just to keep everyone straight!
