On the shaft of that fan, on the other side, is a paddle wheel that drives the air inwards to the combustion chamber.

    Instant classic driving: Just keep going

    There are people who buy a new car or motorcycle every three years to always drive safely 'under warranty'. There are people who spend a lot of money - because € 340.000 for a Porsche 356, I think a lot of money - because… Well, probably because they had at least € 440.000 in their back pocket and that was so uncomfortable.
