Napier - Bentley

Although it looks like Jay's tank car, the Blastolene special, the 
Napier Bentley pre-dates it by 30 some years and it has a weirder 
engine, a W-12 Napier aero engine, which although not quit as 
large as the Blastolene's 1800 cubes, weighs in with a still
respectable 1,400 cubic inches.  Like Jay's Blastolene, the
Napier Bentley is a one off and was constructed in 1972.
Bonus fact, before the 8 litre Bentley chassis it was originally
built on Sunbeam running gear.
