    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.

    I forgot which thread its on, but there's a T-bucket on here with a 6V53T Detroit Diesel in it. Pretty cool imho.

    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. :p
