That's hot!

I loved the Visible V-8 I built as a pre-teen . . . and I learned a lot about the operation of a car's engine.

It's great to see the concept updated, especially since the original VV8 is such a dated design.

Wow…. way cool! Nice to see a new take on an old idea. The overhead cam is a nice contemporary update even though the engine is as basic & generic as can be. This is a good instructional aid.

Nice find, thanks for sharing!

Looks like a Ford Romeo- or at least based on that?

Cool!

There's also a 4-cylinder if that's your preference. http://www.amazon.com/Haynes-Build-Internal-Combustion-Engine/dp/B006H4JEQO/ref=pd_sim_t_1/189-8515608-5956524?ie=UTF8&refRID=14RSHPCPPD4V8FZQGB0W

The reviews on the four cylinder aren't very good though.

I think the assembler might have to be taken into account too. If your assembling this as an educational tool, that means you need education in using tools and following instructions also. I wouldn't take a negative review as the final word.

That's very cool. And it all screws together, which will be way easier for kids than gluing.

Screws/Bolts Together! HEY Aftermarket, how's about some Bolt On Speed Equipment!, Turbo's, Supercharger, Duel Quads, Webers, Headers, etc. Just think of it, a Dynamic Display Kit. Getting tired of the Stock Engine add a Supercharger. Bored with that, how's 'bout Webers!

Technically it is a cam in head, as it has rockers. Overhead cam engines usually do not have rocker arms. I know, it confuses me too.
