Hi William,
That is one interesting piece you have there. The ball fly governor, tachometer & old still radiator give it real charactor. To bad its so far away. I'll bet the Lotus 7 is fun!

I too wish this was closer to home! My apologies if I hijack the conversation. I have seen pictures of cars with tanks in place of the radiator. How does it perform the function of a radiator?
