Meet Lucy, the flame-belching aero-engined car
It takes a special kind of madness to shoehorn a 27-litre V12 World War II
powerplant into a road car. Clive Woolley and son Bruce, of Randburg, spent
four years between 2009 and 2013 creating "Lucy", a spectacular marriage
between a 1933 Rolls-Royce and a V12 Liberty tank engine.
But the madness doesn't end there. As we speak, a similar vehicle -- the
"Rothay Special" -- is under construction in Cape Town.
Watch the flame-belching "Lucy" take to the road in this video...

Guys on the left were working on RR Merlin which didn't startup at that
Shutter speed was automatic, since propellers look strange.

This is our 24 cylinder Detroit that we are putting in a custom 359
Peterbilt. It will use an Allison Transmission, and the engine will be in
the front of the truck. We are starting off with 40 foot 4" X 14" rectangle
rails, not sure how long it will end up being.
Spitfire OUV. A Truly Emotional Start-Up. www.ml407.co.uk
Nick Grace bought the 2 seat Spitfire in 1979 in a dismantled state and
after 5 years of work took off with his wife Carolyn on their first flight.
Apart from the substantial task of general re-assembly the fuselage and
wings were essentially as they left the factory but a large amount of the
work involved stripping back to bare metal and re-riveting after treatment
with modern anticorrosives which is why OUV is still operational today with
no corrosion. Tragically Nick was killed in a car accident in 1988 but his
widow continues to fly OUV. This short clip is taken from the film "Perfect
Lady" which covers the full story of OUV's restoration. It and other videos
are available from Carolyn's website with all profits going to maintain the
Spitfire in flying condition.
First Engine Start FW190
FW190A-8 Werknummer 173056 quickly roared to life Sept. 21, 2009 after 8
1/2 years of restoration work on the four major components of 173056: Tail,
fuselage, wings and engine. Located at the Baton Rouge Metro Airport at PAI
Aero, this restoration is a project of Don and Linda Hansens engineering
company. The engine was started but shut down quickly as a precaution due
to lack of oil pressure indication - found later to be an incorrect
pressure sender. Major Frank Hohmann from Flug-Werk in Gammelsdorf, Germany
worked intently for most of September, as did Don Hansen and crew Rusty
Gautreaux, Danny Trogé and Stephen Hansen to complete engine rigging. This
de-preservation/pre-oiling run was a smoky success, with the 2000HP Ash82T
engine starting instantly on the first try after 30 years in storage. The
first flight is planned for Summer, 2010.

This aircraft just leaps off the runway in just a few seconds, and
remember, the manifold pressure used today for takeoff with 100-octane
low-lead fuel is not anywhere near what could be used with the wartime,
130-octane+ fuel. Very impressive!
