    Unbelievable!!! Wish I had the machinery to do all that and have a blast doing it. How does one make a 1/4 scale 1/2 drive and 3/8 drive click type torque wrenches that are requiered to assemble something like this??? .... Maybe I should give Snap-On a call and see what they can come up with. Thanks Willys!! This is really a great find.

  3. This is not an endorsement for Conley products, but I've seen and heard several versions of their V8. They not only have the look, but they sound like a real V8 and the RPM's are instant. Depending on what kind of fuel system is used, the blower motors even have the surge that is typical of a blown and injected alcohol engine. As far as assembly and maintainance is concerned, its not that difficult. When visiting some of the larger swap meets, keep an eye out for this and other little motors. There's lots of them out there.

    That's wild. I wonder how you hold onto the thing when it flies down a strip so it won't get out of control .

    Put it in one of the 1/4 scale pedal car bodies and put the seat off your mower on the roof. Don't forget your helmet.

    Don't forget the seat harness. That thing will slide out under you like a wet watermelon seed. What a rush.
