Okay!

I'm not really good at this stuff (but it's fun!), so I will give it a try (and try and not make it too hard)-who's Engine is this and what new Technology did it feature?

Auto Jeopardy

DAXZQWXZ, I knew the 57 question and could not get it typed quick enough, but if Ford made more 57 Fairlanes than Chevy did Belairs, 210's and 150's
where are the 57 Fords now?

Dan I have to tell you, George is known as a jerk. I personally had a little thing happen that gave me a bad image of him when he walked by my brothers Buick at the Grand Nationals in 95.

He did take credit for a lot of cars a little back handed. I know a guy who built a sectioned 40 Ford four door sedan in San Leandro (here in the bay area) and did the entire car but hood. The guy didn't want a hood on the car. Well a few years later he had moved to LA and went to Barris for the hood. ALL he did was make the hood and paint it. The rest of the car was built, paint, interior, everything. He put a hood on it AND Barris crests on the cowl! I have a magazine with it in it and it says "Another from the stable of Barris Customs. No mention what so ever of my friend. When it was first shown in a mag my friend said that article said "Partial design and construction credit goes to Emery Robinson". ALL he did was put a hood on this full custom car and Emery got "partial credit".

He did commission Jefferies to build it, just as he did the Batmobile along with Bill Cushenberry, but he took the credit. I can see that, he did HIRE them to do it. It isn't like he did all the work on every car, I understand that. But he went a little further than that with many cars like my buddies.

I can't wait to hear this one, it looks pretty average to me.

I wish i could hear the quotes used with the claims. I am just kind of pissed that a mag like Hot Rod would go to these lengths to embarrass the guy, it looks like a personal vendetta. Maybe he needed it, he was friends with the Peterson family back in the day. And I think most know Sam was te worker, Geo was the promoter.

WHAT IS THAT ENGINE? I googled everything I could think of, no doubt the pic of the truck on the display is a clue, and I have a deja vu feeling like I have seen the display somewhere. Dan

Whew 35window! You have gotten the best of about 2 hours of my day. Me and Yahoo have spent way too much time together this afternoon. I am going to sit back and let one of the smart guys get this one. I am sure it is a truck engine in the 30's but have searched everything from Diamond T, to Reo, To GMC. Nadda! Someone will get it but it won't be me.

Okay, sorry, I did make it too tough-it is a Hesselman Engine, and was the first spark-ignition engine to utilize Fuel Injection:

The Hesselman engine is a hybrid between a petrol engine and a Diesel engine introduced by Swedish engineer Jonas Hesselman in 1925. It represented the first use of direct gasoline injection on a spark-ignition engine. The Hesselman engine saw use in heavy trucks and buses in models produced in the 1920s and 1930s-

So, hopefull this is an easier one:

Which American company designed the Jeep?

I think you are right on the money on all counts.

Bantam. If that is right, pass it on, I am going to bed and need to work early in the a.m. Whoever gets to it first.
