I have a 11 Engine with closed valves that came out of a 1909 I was told that they were offered as an upgrade to the earlier cars if so it would make it it perfectly legal for contest for an 09 just a thought

Brassman, I am really sorry you are giving up the project. That is an impressive collection of really rare parts! I am sure you will find a buyer who is eager to carry it forward, at least I sure hope so!
All of us are just temporary custodians of our vehicles. There were many owners before us, and there will be many owners after us. So you can at least be happy in the knowledge that you have launched a car into the future that would never have survived without your interest and efforts.
Every time I work on something, I do the best I can. I may not finish the entire car, but I can start on part of it. And I always hope that whoever gets the car after me, will be grateful for the care that I expended in preserving the sections that I HAVE completed, even if I only got some small section done.
Everyone who gathers parts for a particular project, even if they never do any work on it, has contributed to the hobby, prevented the loss of precious original items, and like I said, has pushed a car forward into the future. It's the only kind of time travel we can actually achieve right now, and most hobbyists don't even think about it that much..
But it is incredibly important, incredibly effective, absolutely worth all the effort.
Your last and final challenge on this contribution is to make sure it gets into the right hands. I can only hope that fortune smiles on you for that part of the car's journey.
