    #1 Crosley, Just read a book on this about 2 months ago.

     

    #2 Fireball 8

    #3 I know you are thinking of something else but the  Twin six 702 V12 GMC was the largest road gas engine GM offered but it was 1960-65 I believe. Not sure what you are looking for. The 455 SD Pontiac did not arrive till June 73.

     

    #4 As a percentage I would guess Olds from 5 HP in 1901 to 60 HP  in 1910. It could be a number of models back then as they all had nothing for power to start and grew at a fast rate. I picked Olds as this was a GM based web site.

     

    #5 1958 Biscayne first year Last year Bel Air was 75 in the states but I have seen later ones sold in Canada. We used to see them here in Ohio once in a while in the  late 70's and early 80's

     

    #6 1955 Turbine powered Thunderbird. Raised hood intake and large exhaust looks like a Turbine engine.
