Tatra T603 Engine

I've been seriously enchanted by Tatras for more than a decade.  The other week at Cars & Coffee, tucked away behind an Econoline van in the overflow lot - I finally saw one in person, and it didn't disappoint.  I couldn't resist the urge to touch it, just to say I had.  It felt like shaking the hand of someone you greatly admire.  I have to own one of these strange, marvelous things someday.

I snapped this picture of the beast's heart - a 2.5 liter, air-cooled hemi V8 of all-aluminum construction.  It's hi-res, so open in a new tab for full size.

Also, I'm back from vacation, so normal updates are to resume soon.
