    In that case say congratulations to this Fiat on it's 100th birthday this year (ignore the stereo selfies)

    Fiat made some great cars in the early days. Seem to recall seeing a monster gran prix Fiat from around 1920 with a 27 liter 4 cylinder engine.

    Cool Stereo carbide lamps.
    Kgosden; 27 liter??? Seems a bit large. Like about ten times. 2.7 maybe? At 27L it would be 6 3/4 liter per cylinder. Each cylinder would have the displacement of around 3 and 1/2 2 liter soda bottles. I don't think even John Deere one-lungers had that large a displacement.

    Yep I'd be thinking typo and 2.7 litre rather the 27 litre. I also suspect that it would have been a 6 or 8 cylinder. It's only really since about the 1980s that manufacturers have been able to get enough strength in their casting to go bigger than around 500cc per cylinder and still have sufficient revs for an automobile to operate.

    Took a bit to find some references, but early 1905-1920 GP cars had some big engine displacements. In 1907 the Fiat 4 cylinder was at 16 liters (http://www.grandprixhistory.org/fiat130.htm), but they kept going until...
    "The Fiat S76 was produced in 1912 and featured a 28-liter four-cylinder engine. The cars were driven by drivers such as Felice Nazzaro, Antonio Fagnano, and Pietro Bordino. The cars, according to records two were created, were used for racing and for attempting speed records."

    Hmmm. 21.4 liters is ~1324 cu. in. That's a big 4 lunger... Not a big rev-er I assume.

    Nice photos Rich.

    I See You

    According to the information they were revving less than 1500rpm. pretty slow in the days of 20K rpm F1 cars. A shot from yesterday.

    Falconest,

    Great eagle with a great pose. Was it cropped and sharpened? Looks a little noisy for ISO 400, but not to an annoying level, just made me wonder about the post processing.
