    Radial engined pickup

    I guess because "you can". I like it.

    The pickup seems like a silly idea to me, but the radial engined choppers are pretty cool. The Komic Krome is my favorite:

    I guess if you don't appreciate the radial engined pickup, you don't appreciate whimsey.

    A good friend of mine had a brainstorm to build a Bonneville car using a Pratt & Whitney R2800 radial engine. I told him he was nuts to even try something like that. Those engines are rated at 2,000 to 2,500 hp, are 18 cylinders and aren't exactly small. It would be fun to watch something like an R 2800 powered car run on the salt though. Bud
