Mormon Meteor III In Jay Leno’s Garage
More great stuff from Jay. I read about Ab Jenkins for years in Hot Rod magazine but didn’t know what powered the Meteor. One detail is the displacement of the Curtiss Conqueror engine; I think it is 1570 cubic inches, not 1700. Thanks so much for sharing, sir…!! This was obviously an amazing car in its era. Maybe not a beauty, but really cool! In my country- where anything with an engine is dangerous or forbidden by law- we don’t have much to brag about “car-vice”…..but! This car reminds me similarly of ” IL-TEMPO GIGANTE” – a car built by a Norwegian guy called Mr. Ivo Caprino. Pleases, search: “Il Tempo Gigante AutoFil “- fex. This is one heck of a car and it is a shame it is not built any copy
s and shipped over to the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave...!! c;) This was first made for the movie ” Flaklypa Grand Prix ” – and if never seen….pls do- it is a big part of this movie where a really cool Race takes place- and even though it’s not dubbed in English- it’s really fun to see… Thanks again. Amazing.
