Not a motorcycle

If in doubt, or it doesn't seem to fit elsewhere - put it here.

Not a motorcycle

This is not a motorcycle engine, at least I don't think anyone has tried it, yet.
Still an interesting 4 minute video.

If it isn't smoking, it's broken.

Love it. A good friend of mine, Haig Altounian was head mechanic on the P917s for the movie Le Mans. When the film was finished, Steve McQueen gave him a Tag Heuer watch with his name engraved on it and said "thanks for keeping me alive all these months". Hard to believe Le Mans was filmed 50 years ago. Still one of my favorites.

All the cars & bikes I dreamed about are now museum exhibits.
Fortunately, some of them get out now and then.
