These beautiful 1/4-scale engines are the creation of aptly-named Replica Engines, a small company run by the Warner family of Gulliver, Michigan. The company recreates famous internal combustion engines in scale models that are fully operational. That means real four-cycle operation with spark ignition and fully-functional valve trains, oil pumps, water pumps and fuel pumps.$$$

Yeah for a mere $12,000 you can have a 1/4 scale engine. Who the hell would buy one of those?

A little pricey for my wallet.

Really rich people who spends millions just on their daughter's birthday. I would rather just buy a real N* and put a piece of glass on top and call it a table, or power a blender or something.

There's another company out there that makes small replica engines like that. Can't remember the name, but they made a really sweet 1/4 Cobra replica, with a fully function mini 427 in it. Had working gauges and everything.

Exactly. That's what I'm saying.

Might be fun in a go kart or something...

A Northstar table? Excellent idea! :D

But you are right though, I would rather have the real thing. For a few thousand more, you can get a crate LS7. That would be an awesome blender.
