No info, just a picture from the net.

DO Rajos are extremely rare. I wonder if that is one of the reproduction heads built by Dave Szumowski. There have been some past threads regarding Dave's work and there was a Youtube video on one running on a test stand.

I would love to hear this thing run.

That is Dave Szumowski's car.

He cast the Winfields himself. They are throttle-bodies and have electronic fuel injection hidden inside them.

A very proud Father. That is the DO that Dave built. He is further ahead with project, the body is made from flat aluminum that he formed with a power hammer that he also built. The frame is Model T heavily modified, radiator shell was also formed from aluminum, as stated by Derek he made patterns for the Windfields and had them cast. The block and rear end are Model T. He has the brakes finished they also are cast aluminum with cast, cast iron inserts. Dave works on this project when time permits, he does have a job teaching Manufactory Engineering. I always enjoy watching Dave work because he never stops having ideas that are challenging, because that is what he enjoys a challenge. The engine sounds awesome when fired up. There is so much about this car it is almost impossible to list what he has accomplished and the number of hours in fabrication alone. Fran and I are very proud of Dave

Now, that's a speedster! If there's any competition out there, show us what you've got; giving your best shot.

That's not a speedster, that's a racer!

Walter, could you convince Dave to post a listing of all the work he has done? This is really just incredible workmanship and engineering.

Can you imaging Dave's top end setup bolted to one of Les Schubert's 5 main bearing blocks? Although I would not be surprised to hear that Dave already made his own 5 main block.

I'd like to see how this engine would push my TT around. :-)

You know, I'm not a big speedster fan but that car's a beaut.

How do you fit that car in and out of that little grey shop door? :-)
