Not trying to help someone sell this - but look at what's going on in that engine compartment! It doesn't sound like a T in the video either.

I wonder what the thought process was when redesigning the cooling.

I want the front wheels! You guys can have the rest of it!

It has a Kingston Regenerator manifold with a Holley NH adapted to it. Neat idea, wonder how it works compared to a stock intake though. Lots of odd stuff under the hood that likely had little effect on performance and hurt reliability.

Steers like a caterpillar by braking the rear wheels individually - see this video:

Sure seems to ask a lot of the little swivel wheel under the back end.

It's cute, but IMHO strictly an amusement park item.......

This is one of those items that the guys on Pawn Stars would wonder how long it would take to sell it. And make any money on it.

Maybe you guys should read the WHOLE STORY not just look at the pictures. :-)

My RPU would do that if I load too much corn in the bed

Gents,

Help me with a semi-related question exemplified with this vehicle ....

Given that Model T's, especially the early ones, have an easy time of running dry of
oil in the front of the engine, would not doing wheelies REALLY push the limits of getting
oil up front and tossing some bearings ???

I have seen old pix of a number of "clown car" Model T's like this. What did people
do to keep the front end from running dry ?

Burger,if I'm not mistaken,there is an oil pump on that clown car.

There is also a BIG oil line running from the top of hogshead to the front of the pan.

I'm with Dan. I want the front wheels, but the rest of the car really does nothing for me.
