There are some scattered threads on Minerva in the forum but it certainly deserves a dedicated one.     Sleeve Valve engine equipped Belgian builder of high end cars from 1902 to 1938.

 

The eight cylinder "AL" was particularly interesting,  although they all had pretty big motors during the Classic era,  even the sixes.

 

This is a Rollston bodied car that I saw for sale at hershey years ago.

I'll quote myself.   I have seen this car in person and it is impressive,  although I'm not quite sure the treatment works as well as the Brewster Wind Swept Rolls.

 

Here it is prior to restoration.

The car now has an excellent home and a caring owner who will get the car on the road in time so we can all enjoy seeing and hearing it run.

 

 

Last I knew it was fine..........the current owner took me for a ride in his 1903 Pierce last week..........quite a treat.
