When these images were first posted  the owner was Currently  detailing out the new motor in the Whippet.   Building  a new motor for it over the last few years to replace the original one that was badly fatigue cracked in the block. It is now running very well, with a little fine tuning left to complete. Some cosmetic work remains, then I will be happy.

willyAs part of the collection of spare parts his  father sold to him with the roadster some years previous, he  received a 1926 Whippet Touring chassis in basket case status. Research of the serial numbers on the frame and engine block showed this car to have been an early Whippet. He  currently have plans to restore this with a touring body as they are pretty ra re here in the U.S. This car is based in Ohio USA –  at the time  first posted  more details on this car  could be found here

I have always had a wonderful memory. when I say “wonderful memory” what I really mean is that I rarely if ever recall horrible things like the weather. I never recall cold or frosty mornings, or even 24 hours of anything dull or boring that might have happened before or after a memorable event, the happy result being all my life's memories are wonderful. Peculiar as it may sound to anyone who might be reading this, I have absolutely marvelous memories that range from breaking one or more of my bones to hanging upside down from an upper branch of an Oak tree with my ankle wedged between two branches. I have heard stories about people that have totally removed from their recollection painful events that had previously occurred in their life. I can believe this because at this precise moment I can recall nothing that was not absolutely wonderful. If by chance I have ever blocked out anything painful I would consider this possibility to be just another wonderful thing. I intend to Blog about my friends and memories on these pages.
