Hold on to your hats fellas !


Recommended Posts

The Mechanic is telling the driver,  once I get it up to 3000 RPM,  you release the brake (notice his hand appears to be on it)  and we'll see if we can make this sucker fly. 

Hope they remember to light the Headlight first.  That will be quite a chore for the mechanic once they are in Motion.  

 

 

He might also be telling him that in California it's possible this is made up of parts that might cause cancer. 

(though I don't think they'll live long enough to have to worry about it)

At least this one looks like it has a variable pitch, so it might have reverse.

But what the heck is that wash basin for?

And those chained up timbers to hold it all together.

I think the wash basin is the gas tank, and the timber is to hold from taking off...

Note to self: don't wear a long scarf today.

Looks a little like a Curtis OX-5 motor. They were cheap after the war, so why not bolt one to a lumber wagon or something...

Solid tires

And so the journey continues... 

I can't stop laughing. So many things wrong with this picture, and the smile on the guys face with the striped shirt says it all.

This is a good way to give your OSHA agent a heart attack

I thought about that being a fuel tank as it does have a pump rigged to it, probably for priming.  But then I see the big tank under the deck,

Then I got to thinking that those timbers could be the brakes.

Regardless, not a very practical vehicle.

I think the "wash basin" is the fuel tank, if you look closely you can see a hand pressure pump. I guess the driver/pilot with the white coat has to get up and pressurize the tank occasionally. I can't imagine what the timber and chains are for. I would love to know more about the engine. It's obviously a water cooled V-8, probably aircraft of some sort. I can see that baby on the Cross Bronx Expressway, during bumper to bumper rush hour, just shredding rear bumpers and trunk lids or making  Race Car Reliability lap's around the HERSHEY Stadium track.
