Pratt & Whitney Wasp R1340 Radial


  1. I used to deliver new cars for a living. One of the dealers I used to go to all the time was the smallest Jeep dealer in the country. It was located near Milton NJ, up in the boonies. Little tiny road that had the guys name on it. Rick's Road, led to Rick's Automotive. Looked like a gas station at one time. Had 2 daughters, both blonde, both gorgeous. He was the nicest guy you'd ever want to meet.
    He had one of those engines in his showroom. Said he was a fighter pilot in WWII.
    Chrysler put him out of business, gave the Jeep franchise to a bigger dealer. Just like that, gone.
    Always wondered what happened to him.

    1. Chrysler did that to a lot of the little guys. Gotta produce or gotta go.
