That came up a while back. It isn't green and apparently they are clueless about the reference - or have a great sense of humour.

Thanks for that, I knew it was something like that but I couldn't figure out exactly what.

E J Potter, The Michigan Madman?

He was about as nuts as it's possible to get - stick a direct drive fuel injected Chevy V8 between your legs, lift the back wheel up on a stand, rev it up to 5000 rpm and have a "friend" push it off the stand. :wacko:

Incredibly, he survived it all to die of natural causes.

Maybe some in the field can explain this to me, why would you ever crib it up this high? Something to do with the original siting maybe?

Will the last person leaving Seattle please turn out the lights? I remember that era all too well, hell of a lot of beans for dinner, of course always been the nature of the aviation biz, betting the company on the next new product, no surprise however that the downturn trickled down to the construction area, hence the beans for dinner.

So, if embraced is (Frank) Frazetta, is there room for Boris (Valljeo) perhaps?

I have quite a bit more in the fantasy/SciFi vein, Jim Burns maybe? Doing this on a very nice Epson scanner & can make them larger.

My grandmother (my father's mother) was born in McKeesport in 1901.  Probably in the family home.

Holy Crap ! - imagine what the builder of this machine would/could have come up with using technologies of today.

Builder, Walter Christie, credited with building, amongst many things, the first front wheel drive automobile. More info on his wiki page

Well I just worked out that that 4-pot thing displaces 838 cu inch or 13½ liters.  Massive.

And gorgeous.  That looks terrific.  I can almost see those pushrods moving...

Thanks, Hobot.  You always make my day  :)

The un-sprung weight on the front wheels must have made it a bugger to drive.

I see what you did there.  But yeah, I would drive that.

so what did Christie do ? - designed a suspension system:

Quote

At the same time Christie was working on designs for a front-wheel-drive car, which he promoted and demonstrated by racing at various speedways in the United States, including the Readville Race Track and the 1905 Vanderbilt Cup race. His car was knocked out of the race by a collision with Vincenzo Lancia who was at the time leading the race in a Fiat. Lancia was enraged, but presumably noticed the Christie car's vertical-pillar coil-based independent front suspension: the then unusual configuration subsequently turned up on the Lancia Lambda.
