I see that thing often. Did he build the engine? As in forge the crank and pistons and machine the block and all that? It amazes me when people are that darned resourceful. There was a thing floating around the internet where a guy made a replica of a Ferrari and he forged, machined, and otherwise manufactured an exact copy of the real thing only much smaller.

It's an Oldsmobile engine and a Porsche transaxle.

I hope that thing has A/C or it will become a grill on wheels here in the summer.

I've seen it on the roads, but it would have been cool to check out in person.

So since it looks like a trike, which is defined as a motorcycle, will he be joining the forums?:trust:

GM sold the tooling and engine to Rover in England in the early 60s. There was a Buick version too. The Oldsmobile had an aluminum block and heads.

See post number 1 and welcome!

I had actually planned to go tonight, but then I remembered that I will be with Chuck's better half at the musical.
Y'all have a ice cream toast for Dail from me.

Not sure if I'll make it tonight or not. I've got movers scheduled for Tuesday and I just started packing last night. But, I have Sunday off to get packed up, so we'll see.

I was planning to make this one but have a couple of servers to fix. If you talk to Dail, please tell him to Hang in There!
