Maybe someday...


Boy I would have really liked to have bought this! A real Italmeccanica Torino, supercharger. Italian made predecessor to the SCoT blower, commonly used on flathead & race cars of the 1940s & 50s.
Listed on ebay last week starting at $3000, I trying to find a good reason to bid on it. I resisted, mainly because I don't have $3000 in cash to spare at the moment. But most because I don't have $3000 in cash to spare at the moment!















It ended at $3750, still a great price for such a rare and celebrated piece of hot rodding history. In fact I've seen lesser SCoT blowers marked for double what this sold for. And this being older & rarer!
