I am more than a bit miffed! I spent over 2 hours looking at photo's trying to find the two I took of the Ardun head/flat head. I found a couple pictures of the car it was in, but not the engine.
Here is the car which I thought was way cool (circa 1982).

Now I need to find those missing photos of history.

The Ardun headed Flatty is one of my favorites.

Now here's something you don't see every day! Just for you Nail Head Lovers.
How many beers do you think it took before the first guy said "What if ?"

That is so friggin awesome! I don't ever remember seeing that. How about this for a Buick Nailhead, what you are looking at is the SR-71 starter motor. Yes ladies and Gentlemen the fastest plane on earth was fired up by a pair of Buick 425's!

Mike, how about this!

It's a "Rotory" motor guys. I have the "Wankl" in my head as a "rotory" motor but THIS is the first use of the term. And YES the motor spins with the wheel!

Sherman motor

At the Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, MI sits a Chrysler tank engine. This was designed to power the Sherman tank and is made up of five, six cylinder engines mounted as a single unit. The five separate distributors can be seen. It was war and they run what they brung.

500 cube, 10,000 RPM DOHC V8 from 1955

OK, so its centimeters instead of inches. Still, this Moto Guzzi 30 cubic inch V8 propelled a motorcycle to 178 MPH in 1956.

Here's one out of "my" history. It's the Continental midget engine from my uncles war era midget.

I love the wood floor.
