    Wow, that is way kewl, actually it's beyond way kewl! Definitely time for a tune up and a trip to Bonneville! I know what you mean on the old flatty, I did one a few decades back for a roadster, never have spent so damn much money on an engine and got so little horsepower for the investment! I'm not sure the car would be "right" with anything but a flatty for power, though! I suppose one could look around for one of the Lincoln Flatty's and maybe watch the ads for a Scot's blower and.............

    I'm thinking a big clock key mounted on the back (billet aluminum from Dave K.) of the car is what it needs for your next monthly cruise in

    Instead of being part of the problem, be part of a successful solution.

    We did that to a daily driver many years ago.
    Made a couple of brackets out of scrap I had lying around, mounted an electric windscreen wiper motor to it, attached it all to the inside of the trunk lid, which I'd cut a hole through, attached a plywood and aluminium key to it, wired it into the electrics, so when the ignition was on the key rotated.

    Got a lot of funny looks.

    Some mistakes are too much fun to be made only once.

    That's a "bug" thing. This critter is too cool for school.

    Education is expensive. Keep that in mind, and you'll never be terribly upset when a project goes awry.

    That’s really cool! Don’t think I’ve ever seen one like that.
