A Sports Car With a Hot Rod’s Heart……..The 1950 Allard K1
Sydney Allard’s apprenticeship with a London dealer selling both Daimlers and Buicks left him with a thorough understanding of the differences between British and American cars, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of each. By the time he began building cars of his own in the late 1930s, his preference was for a light and nimble chassis, typically infused with flathead Ford V-8 power. One such example, a unique 1950 Allard K1.
The two-seat Allard K1 debuted in 1946, featuring a 106-inch wheelbase instead of the 112-inch wheelbase. Designed to be used on road and track, the K1 used a rear axle and transverse leaf spring setup, combined with a split-axle, transverse leaf spring front suspension.In addition to engines from Ford, later K1 models also used engines from Cadillac and Lincoln.
The K1 is powered by a 1947 Mercury Type 59A flathead V-8, bored and stroked to 295-cu.in. and fed by a trio of Stromberg 97 carburetors perched atop an Edelbrock manifold. Equipped with Edelbrock heads as well, output is quite likely higher than the stated 85 horsepower, and torque is sent to the car’s rear wheels via a three-speed manual transmission.
Allards quickly developed a reputation as fearsome cars to drive, thanks in part to their high power-to-weight ratio and aggressive suspension tuning.Some called Allard’s cars crude, but perhaps purpose-built was a more fitting descriptor. Sydney Allard was a racer first and a constructor second, so his sports and racing cars were targeted towards those of a similar leaning.

If Socialism takes over America, as well as the rest of the world…these brave peole and their actions will be for nothing. We won’t have forgotten…their deeds will be WIPED from recorded history. Future generations will be taught of the dangers that these victors represented.
Well I hope your wrong, cause we fight everyday for our freedom, and many innocent souls have perished, and continue too in many parts of the world. We are suppose to be the intelligent species on this planet I hope and pray the future generations learn from our downfalls and make life worth living…..Be well my friend.
I hope I am wrong too! Take care. Take one of your cars out and blow the doors off of someone. It makes me feel better thinking about it!
📽️ ᔕᕼOᖇT ᖴIᒪᗰ………..𝘼𝙣𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙡 𝘾𝙧𝙤𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙃𝙤𝙧𝙧𝙤𝙧 𝙎𝙥𝙤𝙤𝙛………….★ 𝘿𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙋𝙚𝙚𝙠!
Filmmaker Julian Terry has written, produced, shot, edited, and directed this fun horror parody of 𝘼𝙣𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙡 𝘾𝙧𝙤𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙣𝙜 , called……..*𝘿𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙋𝙚𝙚𝙠.
𝘿𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙋𝙚𝙚𝙠’s premise is based around the concept that the game is integrated with the real world and every action the protagonist makes within the game appears in the real world. It’s not long before things take a sinister turn as an otherworldly presence comes to fruition.
Julian Terry advises users don’t play Animal Crossing late at night.

The 1954 Talbot-Lago T26 Grand Sport Coupe……*Supreme Elegance
Talbot-Lago introduced its new coupe in the fall of 1947 amid brewing financial difficulties. The existing T16 Grand Sport model donated its chassis for the new version, but Talbot wanted a shorter coupe. And they weren’t kidding the T16 chassis was 123 inches long, but after engineers at Talbot finalized the T26 version, just 104 inches remained. This Extra Short Chassis entered series production in 1948. For customers who wanted more space, Talbot also offered a Longue version of their super short chassis, which measured in at 110 inches.
The 4.5-liter inline-six engine from the Record was tuned up to 190 or 195 horsepower. The engine’s considerable power was achieved through features like triple carburetors and a hollowed-out camshaft. Top speed was around 124 miles per hour, depending on what sort of body the owner fitted. Well suited for racing or luxury duty, the T26 was one of the most powerful production cars in existence at the time.
Production started out slowly, and in its first full year of 1948 just 12 examples of the Grand Sport were made. Talbot kept building the T26 at a very slow pace. Though the model continued through early 1955, only around 20 were made.
Hope you are well………*Happy Sunday……..Have a great week ahead.
Thanks armeek. That’s a beautiful car. I can imagine myself sitting in it. If I were young once more..I would start building my own cars..something for people to either enjoy, or laugh about. I re- built, and built fiberglass tractor hoods for a couple of years. It lends itself to experimentation.
Exactly right. Most of the excess heat, and carbon is caused by politicians and sell out scientists. hehe
Climate is always changing. Always has and always will.
