      This in another thread got me thinking... old or new, post 'em up. Bonus points for interesting linkage to the motor, air or the drive.

      Here's a few more.




      I know most superchargers are the Rootes type, but here's some Paxton & McCulloch for us old guys

      Germans are white people. Look up #84 on the list of things white people like: Gear. Lots of Gear. We even have gear farkles over here. -Atomicalex

      Upon my word I have had as much excitement on a car as in the air, especially since the R.F.C. have had women drivers. -James Byford McCudden

      Yes, VW's 1.4l engine of the MkV and MkVI Golf (and Polo) is dual-charged - so it has a supercharger.

      Not really factory, but dealer-installed and warrantied. Tundras are stupid fast for what they are.
