I really like the sound of hot-bulb engines, they were very common around here when I was a kid but now you only find them as museums...

Hit and miss engines, frequently at Fairs/Car shows. I'm drawn to them. Attached a unique example.

This is more a "Hit & Hit", rather than a hit and miss.  A local water supply pump & engine that our club has recently installed.  Engine dates from 1929, full compression crude oil engine.    Three-throw pump dates from about 1920 and was previously driven by a DC electric motor.  It was originally installed on a river bank at various levels, hence the need to add a chain-drive to the gear rediction unit, as it was originally direct coupled.   The engine is air-start with a 3hp kerosene hit & miss engine to run the compressior for starting.
