    Nice!
    I would venture a guess that that is essentially four JAP v twin engines jouned together.
    I bet it sounds good in a tunnel.

    You should read the article that accompanies the pics - it tells you that JAP built V8 engines back in 1908 and that this is one of them. :)

    Impossible not to like that. It's so purposeful. The patina is fabulous along with the visible different metals and the leather. Thanks for sharing.
