    Ok now. I've been looking at this picture off and on for about 58 years and I just noticed the water pump / blower belts are hitting on the distributor cap. What's up with that!
     
  3. I noticed that also but assumed that the engine is just a mockup for the photo as it appears it has never been run...

    Dapper gent, what? I wonder if he just tucked the car into his briefcase before going inside for his business meeting? But no, seriously now, there has to be some kind of story behind this guy and his little machine. Inquiring minds need to know!!! LOL

    Abomination, I totally agree with Lunatic. Your
    contribution to fellow HAMBers is fab. It's a TON
    of fun to go year by year and SEE how the magazine
    quickly matured and developed! THANKS!
