    Wow... what a hot rod!
    Big, beautiful and badass.
    Sounds really good.
    Looks SO nice all rubbed out.
    Congratulations, Gui. :)

    Hola Gui !
    I was just looking at the penatabua.com web page and I discovered this very cool racing car that Nelson Piquet is driving. I hope he will be participating at this years race, I hope that some one will get a shot of the " LEVIATHAN " side by side with it, or even better, the " LEVIATHAN " passing this beautiful blue vintage classic!
    Be safe, be fast and be first across the finish line!

    Dennis.

    Last weekend happened the Pe Na Tábua 2020, abs old car and motorcycle event here in Brazil, in the DIMEP Farm, a particular racing circuit here in São Paulo, Brazil.
    I went with my Leviathan, the V12 Seagrave Speedster, for the first racing test drive , and with my 1948 Indian Chief too

    The Seagrave runs great in the circuit, but I must make some modifications to make the car more usable.
    1- put a Ford F600 Truck steering box, much more low geared than the 1926 Buick that I’m using. The 1926 Buick steering is much more heavy than acceptable.
    2- upgrade the cooling system, with water deflectors inside the radiator box.
    3 - put a more efficient voltage regulator. The dynamo don’t charge very well in idle.
    4- make a complete overhaul in the starter.
    5 - make 4 wheels balancing and aligning.

    I stopped before the end of the 6 laps race negou-se I felt the engine a little hot. So I try to avoid any damage.

  6. You and your family need to enjoy your creation. With all of the sweat and blood that I am sure went into building it you deserve the enjoyment.

    I can’t imagine the big beautiful beast not being very well received by all that attended.

    Hola Gui and family.
    Absolutely outstanding. The Leviathan looks stunning on the track. Perfection achieved, looking forward to further development of the components of this great creation!

    I will work on another poem for the Leviathan.

    Congratulations @Drmalacarne...reaping the rewards and already planning your next performance upgrades...some things just don't appear till the pedal is to the metal...

    The Racer looks really sharp...

    Excellent job! It took me a couple of years to get my vintage race car sorted out after I got it all together, so just keep at it. I'm sure you already know it, but keep a logbook and record everything you can think of. This is especially important if you run on several different tracks.

    Thanks for sharing your adventure you had with your family. You must be proud of your accomplishment and well deserved to you and the builders.

  25. I noticed that myself. However, I will ask Ms. Hansen for her permission before I look at it.
