Just pulled the Goerz-Paeco DOHC L6 Head out of storage. (See pictures below)
Didn't realize that there was that much talk about this head on line.
Remember meeting Tony D in about late 2004 or early 2005 at a Club Z gathering in
Fullerton, Ca. Spoke to him on the phone a few times after having met him in person.
Tried to follow up on a couple of leads Tony gave me. No luck on tracing down any
history of the head or the two names Goerz or Peaco either.
Had not heard from him after that. By the way, my name is Mike, not Richard. No
sweat about it.
As Tony stated in one of the Threads, I contacted Graf Albrecht von Goertz as well.
Called him sometime in 2005 at his Rittergut (Castle) in Brunkensen, Germany.
We had a very nice conversation for several minutes. Mr. Goertz was very excited to
be getting a phone call from California, but he did not remember ever having anything
to do with this DOHC head or even the design of it. His last advice for me was, to call
Bob Sharp and tell him that I spoke with Mr. Goertz. Well, life got busy and I never
followed up on calling him. Shortly after that, the head, drill fixture and the drawings
were packed up and put in storage.
Was going to use the head in one of my own cars. Owned a 74 260Z for the last 5 years.
But like most of you guys, I have way too many projects as well.
That darn internet. People have been looking and talking about this head for many years.
Anybody wanting more info, send a PM or contact me through the site.
