Some photos from my collection:
Worthington Co Holyoke My father worked there as an inspector for 34 years, and I worked there the summer of '66 from 5:30pm to 3:30am, and
around 8:30 pm I would go on the roof and close the clear story upper windows. At the end of the shift @ 3:30 am we would go out onto the street on the side of the building where we parked. My friend warmed up his '57 Chevy 2dr sedan with a '58 Buick 364/300hp, and Ford 3 speed trans, back out, and did a MASSIVE burnout every night ! The boss would turn to me and ask " Why does he do that all the time ? " shaking his head. I just chuckled.....
Hemidav, have you ever seen one of these working models of a Worthington steam pump? I'm working on one when I have time. Here's a link to a Youtube video.

Thanks for looking!
Back to LB's picture of the T with a '37 Cord engine. I understand that you just copied the caption. But wouldn't it have been a Hell of a lot easier to flip the ring gear in the rear then make the engine run backward? That involves a special cam, starter, and many other worries.
I just added the two photos of the Shakespeare Collection on rail road cars on the first leg of the trip back to France for the Schlumph Collection were most are today. . Bob
More photos and the story behind the Shakespeare Bugatti collection THIRTY of them for $85,000, and that covered shipping from Illinois to France!
