Paul, it's 24 inches in diameter and weighs 16.5 pounds, was thinking of finding a new home for it.

IIRC around 1958 Atkinson were advertising the Super Omega with a 600hp
12cyl engine, but I don't know if any were built.

At the other end of the scale this 1954 baby Atkinson has a Gardner 4LK engine,
and pulls the living van trailer parked behind it.
