No but the name might make you think that Wile E would be driving one.

That is the famous 1902 Oldsmobile "Pirate" It may well have been the inspiration for the beach racing in Ormond Beach Fl. The first "organised" AAA speed trials appeared ant the Ormond Beach FL. in 1903. The Pirate clocked better that 54 mph in '02. The Pirate is the Great Granddaddy to all the SLR cars. It was conceived from a standard 1902 Curved Dash Oldsmobile.

That would be the "Turbo Boost" as long as the guy on it is nicknamed Turbo.

I believe they are footrests. The curved dash Olds was crank started. They fitted out the Pirate replica with electric start.

Here's a easy one that everyone will know.

What is the most number of cylinders you'll find on a inline engine and who used it?
