Oh...WOW! I've had a little (very little) machine shop and engine rebuilding experience so I can appreciate what it took to do that. Thanks for posting this.

Funny, I had the same thought. Daddy was a machinist (tool & die maker and model maker); I had some machine shop classes in college.

Not an engine but, an interesting build.

Far too big. My mum had one of these (until she got pregnant with my little brother, and couldn't close the door)
We used to go fishing/camping in it as well, my mum, my dad (big man), me, and my elder sister, plus all the gear we needed. Those were the days :)

Haven't seen one of those on the road here for awhile. Always reminded me of opening a refrigerator door to get in:)
