1963 (or is it a 64'?, after a google, yes a 64. ) F-85 Olds turbo which of course isn't an "Olds" at all but a Buick aluminum block 215 with different heads.

You know the Buick division was working on a turbo charged 425? Yep, it produced 708 ft lbs torque! In an article I read once it said that when it was discontinued the drive train division "breathed a sigh of relief". LOL

Darn! you beat me to it!
But John the Chevy Corvair Spyder was the first American turbo'd production car.
I believe 63' was the last year for that engine.

Got to be Larry Watson's. Looks like his T-Bird which he bought new and re-painted the first week he had it.

I have no life.

Here's one that might keep you guys guessing. Just as a hint it had a aircraft application also.
What is it and who made it?

LOL, VERY interesting and without a doubt one of the most knock your socks off motors every made! This photo belongs in my "Favorite engine photo" thread.



Because I was totally clueless and found it in a google search I am not going to say what it is and leave it for someone else who may actually KNOW what it is.

Very cool!

Trivia

[QUOTE=boothboy]I give up Bob, but you might want to look at this site.

http://www.coachbuilt.com/bui/c/cunn...cunningham.htm

This is one of the most comprehensive piece Cunningham history I have seen. Absolutely wonderful! Not only did the Cunningham Co. build automobiles including hearses, they built trucks, ambulances airplanes, armored vehicles, military tanks, half-track trucks, V8 powered windlesses used to raise and lower military airships and much more. In 1920 alone (their biggest production year) they produced 600 passenger cars, 75 hearses, 36 ambulances and 25 caskets carriers.The company was founded in 1838 and remained under family control until 1968. I guess they did all right.[/QUOte

What's your problem, I said 1915 you say 1916, remember I asked the question, my source said 1916. The year wasn't part of the question anyhow I just put that out there. There have been a lot of times that there have been a couple years in the answer it was always settled. I didn't put or ask for anything else they built. Your source said they built 600 passenger cars, mine says they built just over 400, and half of them were funeral cars.

The answer wasn't Peerless and it wasn't Caddy, so you didn't get them right. Your source, which I can't get to open, said they were under family control until 1968. I read in one piece they closed the doors in 1939.

So what's your point.

Bob

"Smarter" huh? You mean has stored more useless information in their heads!

In the book "The magic of Thinking big" (A VERY good book) there is a part where a very experienced businessman is watching Jeopardy with friend and he asks the friend "How much do you think I would give to have that man who answers all those questions like that to work for me". I don't know the friend answers. He then says "I would pay him $300 because that is what a set of encyclopedias sells for."

That makes sense. When I graduated high school, I ran off and joined the Navy at 17. My brother had gone to MIT on a full scholarship. Make no mistake about it, He is brilliant but if you gave him a wrench there is only a 50/50 chance he would turn a bolt the right direction to loosen it. We all have our strengths and weaknesses but the world needs us all to go round. By the way. I Googled it too.
