And as with buildings it’s better if they are really challenging – the ones nobody else sees, or the one that most people wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot pole.

Currently I am in the process of rebuilding the motor in a 1926 Lancia 6th Series Lambda. This is a Typo 67 engine. They were technically advanced high-performance engines for their day. Many of the specifications wouldn’t be out of place in a modern engine, in fact. More details to follow, but it’s been a fun experience thus far.
