In the twenties / thirties we had around three or four companies that supplied OHV conversions to side valve head engines. These were mainly designed to suit volume vehicle manufacturers such as Austin & Morris as well as a few Fiats.
I understand that in the " flat-head " era in the US there were around fifty companies offering OHV conversions. I would be interested to see some information on these as frankly the UK designed ones were poor and although we have a few extant examples on cars they shouldn't work at all!!...but they do!

Thats what you call traditional right there.
A gal I used to work with had pictures of her Dad and some college friends playing football with Elvis. I don't know if these were shot on the same day or not, but It sounded like he would do that pretty frequently early in his career.
Great series of candid pix. Like many stars, Elvis found that the downside of stardom was in finding it hard to get clear of adoring fans far enough just to RELAX and be human. Everybody needs free time and recreation. Those touch football games were pretty famous, and people at least had to stay off the playing field.
Less well known, Clint Eastwood related that in the early '60s, the set of "Rawhide" and at least one Elvis movie set were contiguous. During breaks, Elvis would come over and exercise one of his passions by playing "quick draws" with the western star. Eastwood said he was pretty down to earth and "a nice guy."
Great story, BUT, I wish those quick-draw showdowns had been photographed!
I had a cussin that lived around the corner from him. I beleive it was before Graceland. He played football with him several times. Just a neighbor hood pickup game. Said he had great humor and was a ot of fun. Elvis liked to play quarterback. He said he was pretty fast. Said he was a Cleveland Browns fan. I was at Graceland a few times. He did have a room set up with 3 TV's to watch several football games.
Maybe they were, and that's why Ed Sullivan wouldn't "shoot" Elvis except above the waist on his shew. . .
Now there is a lift bridge in this location.
Thanks to Town of Royalton Historical Society
Or early Harley! They were just as bad

I'm new to this site but what I've seen to this point has been fantastic. Thanks for the pictures everyone.
"NOT a nose gun"----But a "TAILGUN" in rear of B-17!!
I used to have a lamp that looked like that!
At first glance I thought the QB was Elvis.
