The Curious Case of the 1912 Blackiston
There was only one 1912 Blackiston, and no one knows what became of it. That is perhaps a good thing, since the car is most famous for being a one-of-a-kind, having an engine cover so large you couldn't see what was in front of it, and manslaughter. The product of George P. Blackiston, more tinkerer than visionary, his leviathan was a tribute to, well, no one knows, really. But it existed, and to the true tinkerer not much else matters. We won't spoil the it for you – if you enjoy a bit of intrigue with your internal combustion, then click on through to Hemmings for a good story well told.
