NYC was The Old Family Business for my maternal grandmother's family... well, let's just say that when her grandfather had only one son follow him onto LS&MS/NYC, one on then-NYC-affiliated Nickel Plate and two defecting to archrival Pennsy, that must have made some REAL interesting holiday-dinnertable discussions... O.O

There’s something magical about a car modification that costs over $30,000 and results in making a car that’s louder, rougher, smokier and objectively less useful than when you started. It’s also now only capable of 15 mph. And yet, somehow, the car is so much better than before. That’s the case with Frank Rothwell’s steam-powered Land Rover.

Yeah, I got a case of morning sickness. When I was younger, I brought a 1968 Austin-Healy Mk IV Sprite back to life in a Dr Frankenstein way (eg; 1950 Packard rear shocks @ $10 viz Lever Arms @ $150). 

So instead of English auto SOP of leaking just coolant, oil, fuel, electricity and money, this thing can leak steam, coolant, oil, fuel, electricity and money.
