Imagine a 1915 chassis, riding on 1915 tires, being stopped by brakes of the same vintage, with 17 liters of VanBlerck power. Whoa, whoa, boy.

I like it. I like it a lot :-)

Crosses a fire engine, turn of the century SUV and a boat tail speedster with an ox cart in a most manly way. Notice that both rear wheels are driven and it sure doesn't look like there is any differential. Must be a real handful to drive, but sure, what's not to like?

I does look pretty cool, but here is what not to like. It is apparently six feet tall. If you look at the pictures with that scale in mind, it's center of gravity is at least three feet, if not four feet, off of the ground. Couple that with it's narrow track and skinny tires, and you best be a really short person when you roll it. Its massive engine is way up high, and its drivetrain must be, too, judging by the angle of the chain drive.
