    AMC was going to source the rotary engine from GM, as they were going to market their own Wankel powered car. As with the Pacer, GM already tooled up the cars when the deal fell through with Mazda. That's where we get the Monza, Skyhawk, Sunbird and Omega from.

    SWI66, in the shot of the couple, is that you with the Japanese girl? Looks a lot like a friend of mine at Misawa AB in the late 50s.

    You gotta be jokin' me. I don't care what it is she's sellin' - I'm buyin' some.
    I don't even care that she's probably 80+ now - that is an image worth saving for posterity.

    Ford continued to supply replacement four cylinders engines for Model T and Model A until the war started. In 1939, Ford supplied a 4 cylinder for its farm tractor and this engine was very very similar to the Model A engine except for insert bearings. This engine also went into pickups. There is a thread on the hamb about one of these original trucks. The Model A/B/tractor engine 4 cyl was made until 1952
