This isn't his only 3ngine, he's been cranking engines out for years, singles, 2, 3, 4, 6 cylinder. Masterpieces!

Don't mean to be making sport the man's work, they are nice hand made work. What sets it apart is the ultra high costs beyond most's means, or beyond one's reasonable budget.

Then ... I thought it was opportune to share with you an engine made in my country in an artisan way by an artisan!
I hope you like it!
The brand of the engine are the initials of the creator JCM, made in Argentina.

Beautiful piece of engineering art!! I assume it must generate at least 6HP power? Is this a glow or a gas engine?

Hello András, it is a Glow engine, that is to say "brightness", I have captured an image of the video where you can see the set of batteries to heat the glow plug.
Mr. comments in the video that he needs many amperes due to the consumption of the 5 glow plug.High Cost Engines - Page 2 Radial11

GHQ engine powered, nice, but at $12.5k definitely for the determined collector. I could buy a nice motorcycle for that cost. Smile lol!

This guy is whistling dixie, only a few rare cars ever go that high.
If you find a Duesenberg in a barn you hit the jackpot. This is a repro.

The BB Korn is very valuable also

Most all others go for 1K to 2K, these folks are just pizzen up a rope.

This one is considerably larger, would size make a difference, if any?

This is prettier and more affordable:

They are larger because this one is a touch shorter at 18" long.

Here's another high priced tether car ($2.5k), but has no details on what engine powers it or even has an engine.

Perhaps these are coming out of the woodwork now because of a recent episode of "American Pickers" where the guys paid thousands for a couple of tether cars.

This must be some type of a fad thing going on. I see these as toys for the wealthy, who can take a hit on their stock losses and not wince.

Actually, the tether car / prop rod sightings that I have enjoyed are the ones done here in this forum, the ski prop rod in snow, the old time prop rod twin fast run from down under, remake of a Scientific hollow log body Sprint car, refurbished Cox item, and etc.

There is more originality when someone builds their own creation and shows it off here. That is a closer touch to reality for me and with far greater worth than these ultra expensive and IMO overpriced display items will ever show.

Your particular car, how did I missed that one? Huh... drunken
That price is a bargain, why, given these other sellers, aren't you selling it for far more, like $44,000? Beer Cheers lol!
