A blog about things, life as I see it, and stuff that needs sharing.

Here you will find a collection of my interests, experiences, and future plans. I'm an engineer. I row. And I happen to like cars...a lot.

The images you see here are not mine unless specifically tagged #mine. I'm a crappy photographer but I like taking pictures anyway.
Questions? Comments? Concerns? My inbox is always open.

 

The white knight rides again
1911 Mercedes Benz “Blitzen-Benz”
In 1911 this car set the world land speed record at Daytona Beach with an average speed of 141mph thanks to this car’s 200hp engine. It has a 21.5 liter 4 cylinder. Which means that basically it’s bore (185mm) and stroke (200mm) are almost equal. The engine is essentially a 22 liter square. Of the six originally built only two remain.
To watch footage of its beautiful engine and it’s very lengthy and complex starting procedure check out the link here.
