The video is cool. Love the sounds and the fire-farts!

Cool video,
Funny thing, I purchased a Fiat 128 sedan new in 1976 and it was ready for the junkyard within 2 years. Pretty sure it won't be getting fired up in 100 years.

Saw that video from another site I hang out on. It is a neat story and very neat video. As big as the engine is (28.5 liters, 1729 cu inch), the driver that drove that car to 180 mph has even bigger cajones! Small technical tidbit, notice the crank has no counterbalance weights? When running the engine shakes the whole chassis.
