Singapore

Seems that in Singapore you have to have a "warranty" on any car, and purchasing a warranty on a car over ten years old is prohibitively expensive. In addition, the cost of road taxes (annual registration) goes up exponentially after a car reaches the age of 10. So, we're BOTH right - you CAN (technically) have a car older than 10 years old in Singapore, but it costs so much that no-one does! (On one site it noted that this makes Singapore one of the world's largest car exporters!)

And now I gotta come up with a good question. This may take a while.....

Hemi engine

Okay - here goes

Can you name a maker of an AIR-COOLED hemi engine? I am looking for an automotive engine, not an aircraft. The one I am thinking of was around in the 50's/60's.

The only air cooled engine that comes to mind was a Tucker.

Hemi

The Tucker "Torpedo" (Tucker 48) had, if remember, a flat 6, horizontally-opposed boxer engine that was air cooled, but not a hemi. I seem to remember it being a Continental (or Lycoming? Or Franklin?) aircraft engine adapted for car use. The one I was thinking of is an actual air cooled hemi, V8.

Tatra

Yes, TATRA is the answer. They first made an air-cooled hemi V8 in 1934 and continued with variations of it up into the 1970s

Where do you collect your award? Right here, right now. YOU now have the floor to pose the next question to try to "Stump the Members"

Nolan An easy one, I know you are sitting in your rocking chair right now, with a s--t a-- grin on your face. Every site you go to has a different car. I think this will take awhile. I will be back, I have to go look or guess which ever comes first.

Wisconsin

Was the Wisconsin not air cooled with hemi heads? They used them in a variety of equipment, one of which was fork lifts....

Lord only knows why it made the list at all,,,,but could it be the Tatra T87 shown here? Made the New York Times list.

I here that a hot rodding trick for these is to add a rudder control to the rear wing making for a cornering force of .21 g possible

Wonder if this ones got the HEMI?, it could use all the help it gets

Nolan please tell me this is the wrong answer LOL.

TJ, you got it. I can't tell you its wrong. Tatra, what the hell is a Tatra? I had never heard of one until I found the air-cooled hemi v8 question.

About that fin thing, looks like an early attempt at AERO design. HA HA

The floor is yours Sir. Nolan

Thanks Nolan,,,

OK so just off the top of my head. Had a 70 Torino Cobra years back, 429CJ with drag pak, fun stuff. Ford had included a RPM govenor/limiter from the factory.

Can anyone tell us what the factory limit was on the RPM for 70 429CJ/SCJ?

I remember this well because when I got the car the governor was in the glove box and had the RPM number was right on it,,,hmmm that should have been my first warning that the thing was rode hard and put away wet lol.

Good moring all. If my memory is right it was 6000 rpm. When I was a senior in high school my dad had the same car with a 4 speed. I used to rev to the limiter and start shifting. pretty cool stuff for high school.
