      Amazing car, I love the mechanical ritual of just starting an airplane engine or even an early automobile. Great video and car!

      Not a car for the faint of heart, or those lacking in mobility and strength... no power steering or breaks here! By the way, Jay's Massachusetts upbringing is probably why he's pronouncing "Suiza" as SWAY-zah... it should be SWEE-sah. Can't go to your local tire dealer for new tires for this car!

      Mr. Leno, I found this and thought of you. I think we should go to Goodwood and take one of your Hispanos out and race it. If you need a navigator, I volunteer!

      20 litre aircraft motors are the future for cars they have low rpms = good mpg.

      I wonder if Jay has a "test pilot" to take these really old cars out first...to make sure he doesn't have an issue at highway speeds. Does anyone know?

      Man, am I ever looking forward to this !  That engine was the absolute pinnacle of engine technology ... it would be 50 years before many of its features became avaialable in consumer autos and 70 before they became common !  towit : OHC, Aluminum Block with replaceable liners, Aluminum head, we still don't see dual ignition in stock autos, despite the advantages.   It SURE IS like an airplane in the cockpit.  !!  What a freakin' trip !

      Local folks on the freeway know it’s Jay from a long distance back. It’s the only way a car that old, that big can be going that fast. Gotta be a Jay restomod !!
      OK, maybe the flying silver hair is a clue.

      Nope, sorry Jay. Antoinette had a V8 aircraft engine in 1907. And, more or less the same engine was used in a car the year before, and the basic root of that engine was patented in 1902. The Hisso could be called the first really reliable V8 aircraft engine, though.

      Jay....if you're ever in northeast PA we have several airplanes with this motor. Eagles mere air and auto museum. Fuel pumps on these are propeller driven off of the main prop.....ours are rated at 180hp (non-turbo)....
