      Looks to me that the thing which appears to be a blower is actually a turbine, which in turn drives the crankshaft. That must be the only explanation for why the header pipes come out of the intake.

        How about the Munster Koach, with 10 Hilborn style intake tubes... was it really a V10, or was that just for looks, too?

        What kind of jet propulsion was in the Bat Mobile? I wonder how much thrust it had and what the top speed was...

        ...and what's with shifters sticking through the roof! Surely a shorter shifter would have been better for performance shifting!

        Clearly just for looks ... C'mon Alex, not everything on a show car is functional.


        the monkey mobile was a pontiac engine and the munsters coach had a ford cleavland motor

            Two cars were contracted to be built: One as a main TV car, to be used on the television program, and one as a promotional show car, to tour hot rod and car shows around the United States. Both cars would be built in the span of four weeks. The first version originally sported a 6-71 supercharged engine, a solid mounted rear axle (no springs) and extra rear end weight. This was to enable the car to "pop wheelies." Because the car had too much power and was difficult to drive, the original blower set up was removed and a dummy blower was fitted. The second car was used as a touring car for auto shows and promotional events. Both would be used on The Monkees TV series, one during the first season and both throughout the second season.[2]

            Several notable differences between the two cars exist, such as the size of the door logo and the styling of the fan belt cover and blower lines, which can be used to tell the difference between the two cars. It should also be noted that there are numerous replicas created over the years, none of which were made by the original cars' creator, Dean Jeffries. Such replicas also have a number of distinctive visual differences unique to each car.

                          His shop is still on Cahuenga Blvd. It never looks as if anyone is working there. For the longest time that weirdo truck from Damnation Alley was sitting there.
