Oh heck yes I do, and I check them out most every Goodguys event where they are displayed. There are guys with V8s, Harley motors, boat motors radial aircraft, I love hearing them run.

Love those miniature engines......and also the BIG ones.

Here is one of my favorites. It's a 140 ton, double acting tandem natural gas pumping engine from the PA oil fields.
It's rated to make 600 HP continuously at 80 RPM, and displaces about 86,800 cubic inches (1420 L) (376 Gallons ).



The engine now resides in Rollag, MN (near Fargo) at the WMSTR show grounds, where they run it and thousands of other antique engines every Labor Day weekend.

I realize this is a photo thread, but all I have is video of this engine. Please forgive me.

Well, it DOES have a Chevy water pump at least! He ought to make a custom "9" to go w/the 3 and 2 of the 327 badge to make a 392 badge for it.

I am sorry, I have seen WAY too many small block Chevy's to last five lifetimes. Sure I still see one once in a while worth looking at but they are few and far between for me. Just a personal opinion, nothing personal towards anyone who owns one.

When I saw your thumbnail photo I didn't even click on it.....then I read Cobalts response and clicked on it. LOLOLOL I love it!

There was a guy here in town who had a real nice 69 Camaro with a 383 Chrysler in it.

When I had my 64 Vette, I was seriously thinking about putting a 401 Buick in it. I really did, I was thinking how much fun it would be to open it up at a Vette show, then I thought how I honestly could end up getting in a fist fight, people get pretty serious about this stuff.

Here's one I built back in about 1980...

XKE V-12 with six Weber 44IDFs, baffled zoomies, MSD7, hot cams, HC pistons, in a Nordic 21' tunnel picklefork hull. All the marine hardware was hand built.

The jet drive was the weak link, as it prevented the motor from getting up to an RPM where it could really shine.

Sure turned heads though, and sounded like a P-51.

Ahhhh a 289 Cobra or as I like to call them "AC Cobra". When I was a kid in highschool my brother worked for a guy with a few 289 Cobras, one of them being an automatic car! One of only 4 made (for good reason, but it was cool to have something so rare) and it had side draft Webers on it. This photo may be the actual car, it was white and it still exists I saw it at a Cobra display a few years ago.

Back in 76 or so he sold it for an mind blowing amount of money, $20,000! You could buy a house in the bay area for that at the time!

I'm thinking the instruction manual got left out of the box. Or he didn't listen to his mother when she said, "Don't cross your eyes like that, the'll stay that way." What do you think?

This one is interesting but I can't find specs on it. Manufactured in1952 as a power source for a water pump. It is a 2-stroke deisel. What is really interesting is it has a even number of cylinders and is a single row radial engine. It was done by having two master rods. The opposite cylinder fire simultaneously. Darned if I know why. Anybody have any info on this engine ?

That's both awesome and a bit scary at the same time! LOL
I'd hate to imagine a "blower sneeze" with all of that compressed air/fuel area.

Those are a couple of great ones BB, I love that Buick. When ever people do things like that I just dig it, it never seems to make that big of a difference people tried it many times with Ford Flatheads but it must not do that much or those would be the record setting motors and it never seems they are.

But people are always willing to give it a go.
