Guy bought one at last fall's auction, I was cold moving cars across the stage.  Buyer was going to drive I-90 from Saratoga to Buffalo with his not very excited girlfriend.

Makes me think of Chrysler's first hemi, the IV-2220.

My old man used to marvel at that engine.  During the war he worked for the company that made the oil viscosity control valve for it.  He told me more than once during my childhood the thing pumped 50 Imperial gallons of oil per minute.  About the same flow rate as a bathtub faucet...

Or in sort of shurunken form (not really, no connection other than general layout) the tiny in the real world, but way big and heavy by race standards, the BRM H16 3.0L F1 engine.

So guess what, of the seven human fatalities, 5 or  over 70% happened off Australia's coast.  As usual, ever animal is deadlier in Australia, obviously nothing to do with shark distribution, just Australian sharks are evil bastards!

I took this picture 39 years ago, at Knox Mountain hillclimb.  I just remembered it's Victoria Day weekend, and checked the website.  Same car, same driver entered this year.
