It's always worth checking to see if it's the last of a flurry of posts.
He (Louis J. Fageol (pronounced fadjl)) immediately obtained a new 356 coupe, and installed a second Porsche engine up front, successfully campaigning it in several SCCA events in the Midwest. This led to the creation of a totally new chassis, complete with a new body constructed from two Fletcher Aviation drop tanks. It looked as advanced as it was, for All Wheel Drive cars were rare and racing AWDs were even rarer. It was also complex. In addition to the duplication of controls (a problem which confronted all such twin-engine efforts), Fageol decided to supercharge the engines, and run the superchargers via two Fageol chain saw engines. That made it a four-engine race car!
