Tappet Clatter: January 2023

January 2023

A deep dive into the 1934 LaSalle starts this issue with an exploration of the people and General Motors creation of LaSalle. We explore the strange path to the Revs Institute for the 1988 Arrows F1 race car. Briggs Cunningham understood how air affects his cars, his sailboats and used it to his advantage.  This month’s Tappet Trivia features four questions about the history of Rolls Royce’s mascot, The Spirit of Ecstasy. Tappet Tech explores ladder frame and unit-body automobile construction.
