Pork Chop is back with his latest creation to move that hot shine thru the GA backwoods! After finding this long forgotten 32 in the back pasture over grown with kudzu, PC decided to get the ole girl runnin again. Outfitted with a blown ardun flathead he aquired in a late night poker match years ago, he knew it needed more power. So he scrounged up two nitrous tanks and hooked em up and it boiled the old skinnies so he needed some new shoes to handle that new found power. After looking thru the pole barn out back he found his old mag wheels from the black sheep he built years before and slapped em on. He also figured he should do something about the holes in the floor so he plained some lumber and made his own pine floor! Only thing left to do now is test it in the dirt!
The 1957 Oldsmobile Super 88 was a sublime blend of luxury and muscle. While its already-classic styling was enhanced by a few upgrades, mostly to the roofline and grille, the real treat for ’57 was the J-2 Golden Rocket engine, capable of an advertised 312hp. And to help celebrate Oldsmobile’s 50th anniversary that year, the engine color was turned to gold. Whether you were in the market for power or for a stylish ride, the ’57 Oldsmobile had it all.
In 1923, the era of supercharged racing cars began. The Daimler factory in Untertürkheim of Stuttgart did not sit idle on this trend, and the development of a new supercharged vehicle soon got under way.
It was meant to develop a new racer for the 1924 Targa Florio, and Ferdinand Porsche was the new chief designer at Daimler Motor Company. Under his personal direction, a team of engineers conducted an in-depth look into the 1923 M7294 compressor engine and came up with some ground-breaking upgrades. As a result, the mximum output was pushed up to 126 hp (even to 150 hp in late 1924). This was made possible by relocating the compressor – Roots blower – to the front of the engine. When more power was needed, it could be obtained by a forceful step on the gas pedal. This would trigger the mechanic action or movement to bring the output from a normal 68 hp up to 126 hp.
Shortly before the start the german race cars that according to the FIA specifications until 1970 had normally to be painted in white were repainted in red- with this trick Mercedes could successfully prevent that the vehicles were thrown at the many local crossings in Sicily by Italian fans with stones. Only with this trick was it possible to win the double victory.
Also at CMC, we decided at the last minute to repaint one of the models, the M-206. So this will not be delivered as previously planned in red but in white, as it was also thought by Mercedes initially.
We also succeeded in finding new and previously unknown archive material.
On this historically unique basis, we have adapted the vehicles. So they have outside gasoline pipes and, most importantly, on the new knowledge following, correct narrow racing tires. Also today we are sure that the vehicles were carrying two spare wheels at the rear and considered this accordingly.
With this variant we offer you a model complete in white, without starting numbers.
