Aero Racers

I can't think of a video that more screams Flathead Rob.

I had to know more. The museum site says it's a 46 liter (2800 cubic inch!) V-12 from a WWI Zeppelin, mounted in a 1908 chassis. The motor turns 800 RPM at 100 kph (60 mph)! It has to be hands down the most awesome sound I have ever heard an internal combustion engine make. Wow!

There is a similar car close to where I live, called a "Liberty LaFrance. A WWI Liberty V-12 aircraft engine mated with a LaFrance chassis. Straight stacks. I have hear it run in person.
