    I recently made this build video, and thought you might enjoy it.
    **Disclaimer**
    I made the video for an online car show, but not wanting to use this (HAMB) for self promotion, I am not going to add that info.

    Thanks guys!
    I am having fun making videos like this, and it is great that others enjoy them.
    I have tons more about the car that I plan on putting together, heck I'm only half way done!

    The twin coils and double ended rotor w/15 degree offset solved the mystery (to me at least) of how the heck they got a 45 degree V 12 to run.

    Good work but don't drink the antifreeze.

    Thanks for sharing this.:)

    I don't think there is one person in a hundred out there that would know this is not a factory build.

    Thank you. I don't know really what to call this car. It's not a "restoration"( not 100%correct)
    It's not a " resto mod" ( not with a 80 year old engine and drum brakes) it is not "traditional" in that nobody was screwing with a big heavy 12 cylinder vs flathead V8, maybe a fantasy recreation (?)
    Your comments make me smile, I wanted to "pull off" slight mods that only 100 percent Auburn experts would notice.

    A plus is that nobody can say I "ruined a perfectly good car" you all saw what I started with...
