I saw a sign in the Johnny Dark trailer for Washington US Hwy 195. I might try and drive it if I make it to Goodguys Spokane.

The good shots of the engine is of Duesenberg's W24 engines which was comprised of three v-8s.
One of the neat things about the inline 12 cyl was the block was cast aluminum in 1914!

. Actually appears to be 3 DOHC STRAIGHT 8's on a common crankshaft... and coolest part is NO timing chains to wear out! All gears... appears the first big gears run about 1/4 crankshaft RPMs, then double the RPMs back up again via outer gears to run the 3 sets of overhead cams... somebody did a lot of counting of gear teeth to make that work... and with no computer...

. Old Chevy straight 6 and 4 also super dependable with all gears, no timing chains/belts to fail... add in HEI distributor and it's always ready to go...
