    What was different on the Tyrrell P34 formula one race car to all the other race teams?

    "Something about the chassis".

    Nobody has answered, so, it had 6 wheels, the front of the car had 2 sets of smaller wheels.

    Perhaps you can tell me what engine was in Bill Cosby's AC Cobra?

    This car was one of two. It was a gift from Carroll Shelby who kept the other one for himself.

    I saw that segment on tv. It's the standard 427 with dual superchargers added to it

    As if a 427 wasn't already enough power for a ridiculously small car that can't take a corner. Probably why the guy that bought it drove it off a cliff.

    Correct, I didn't know about the TV segment, what was the show I might find it on U tube?

    New question:

    Who was the first manufacturer to use a serpentine belt on a production model?

    It was actually a lot more recent than you think

    Mercedes. What was so wrong with V-Belts?!

    For some reason, the under drive pulley kit I bought for my Camaro had a mix of serp and v-belt. No idea why.

    Lol, that's the Wikipedia answer.

    Credit actually goes to the 1979 Mustang 5.0. About the only thing the car was known for besides being a joke

    Really? I was hoping it would explain the whole serp/v-belt combo with my 85 motor since Wikipedia says that

    The production serpentine belt was manufactured by Hutchinson and first used by Mercedes-Benz on the 1985 190 Series.
    I do see traces of a serp belt for 79 Mustang but no reference to it being the first car. I had to google since no one answered in 2 days

    Ok, I'll throw out a new question.

    Which intelligent car can fit 4 passengers, but is only 9.7 ft long?
