Thatís cool! Iíve always found Franklins fascinating. The air-cooled engine provides some cooling challenges in a motorcar.

BTW- The 1907 Franklin Model G is the feature car of the New London to New Brighton Antique Car Run this year. I feel that our 32nd annual T-shirt design is one of the best weíve ever had. Check it out at: www.antiquecarrun.org

Very cool (pardon the pun)!! Since we can see the fan blades in the two center cars and not the two outboard cars is it reasonable to think the two in the center were not running and the two outboard cars were?

Eric, What would those cooling challenges be?
Air is all around us and if you boil over a water cooled motorcar you need to find more water to add.

. . . but a cupful of water has the capacity to transfer as much heat as a roomful of air. It's just hard to get enough air to the right places. Many airplane engines are air-cooled, but they take a fair bit of baffling to get the air to the right places, and have the advantage of moving through the air at 100 +/- mph.

(For my real job, I design computers that use megawatts of power, and are mostly water-cooled.)
