    That's not the same engine Jay Leno has in his "Tank" car, is it? I forget if that one was 12cyl, but it was air cooled.

    Yeah the paragraph brought tears to my eyes
    wow, that guy has one of those?

    Thats the same company Tucker ended up buying, and had build the water cooled engines for the car. It was the only part of Tucker that continued operation after the car company filed BK
