Arrow Odd engines for hot rod builds....

Somebody on this local Calgary based forum spotted this around town. It has a 12B Mazda rotary engine. I sure thought that was very odd.



Anybody else know of any other rods with very unconventional engines?

lets see what other oddities are out there!

Don't have a pic, but there was something in the swap meet area last summer at Street Rod Nationals that was powered by a DOHC 4 from a CB900.

THAT would be interesting to see. Be kind of rough parking it though, having to get out and push it, since being a bike engine it wont have a reverse.

An Isuzu 3 cly or a chevy 5 cly would defiantly make odd engines

The builder may have discovered the same. It was an unfinished project
