There are several reasons I always have a hard time believing a L-29 would make a good race car. Transmission gearing, Differential gearing CV joints, inboard braking and weight, to name a few. But I love driving mine and the design, the design, the design, what more can I say.

I hope during restoration they get that family of groundhogs out of it (or is that how it was powered for the movie?).

Anyone recognize anything familiar (under the hood)???

The engine looks all L-29 Cord, although the radiator inlet is in the wrong position. It looks as though the top tank has been altered to lower the hood line.
