Default Gasoline Lover From Michigan


I’ve often hit these forums in various research projects, but as my interests lie more with automobilia than stationary and marine engines, I haven’t signed up until now. I still don’t know how much I’ll post, but I’ll be in here, reading, as I love 1890s-1960s technology and our industrial history.

A buddy of mine who doesn’t Internet much is starting a cyclecar project, and is trying to keep it period correct to their heyday in the teens and twenties. I’m hoping to help him with leads on an appropriate engine: A Spacke v-twin would be nice, but I’m guessing something more like a Continental F124.

My wife is fond of pointing out that I have more engines than I’ll ever use at this point, but probably the only thing of interest around here is my 1928 Chevrolet Four. It’s eventually to be mildly hopped up and shoehorned into a Ford chassis for a speedster project, but I wouldn’t mind seeing if I can get it running in its present state on a test stand.
