'27 Buick On A Dyno?


The graph shows the results, with the numbers including drivetrain loss, which is often estimated at 1520 percent. The horsepower peak was 29.97, while the torque number confirms the old notion that early engines were built for torque, with a peak of 89.10. Top speed on the rollers approached 50 mph, which seems about right for the vintage of the car.

Re: '27 Buick On A Dyno?


Interesting result - doesn't sound much but the torque spread I'm guessing was quite flat and spread over quite a wide rev range.

The term often used for classic shows is Concourse - that really isn't correct - yet we frequent see it being used both here in the UK and in the USA.
Meaning
a large open area inside or in front of a public building
a crowd or assembly of people

The correct term is surely Concours - a French term (presumably) meaning
an exhibition or parade of vintage or classic motor vehicles in which prizes are awarded for those in the best or most original condition
