    Default A car.

    My friend, John Rozich, is an artist in Seattle. He did several pastel portraits of a local collectors cars. The guy passed away a couple of years ago, and John kept in contact with his widow. He asked her if he could take the Kaiser-Darrin to the Greenwood Ave Auto Show and she agreed.

    I remember seeing that car at the Greenwood show a few years back, pre-COVID.

    Just curious about such a gorgeous car. What powered it and how the engine was cooled with nearly no front airflow entry?

    It was a cast iron industrial engine, powered everything from cars to welders.
    The Darrin was all show and no “go”!
