    Fortunatly no one was hurt.

    Unfortunatly the engine, which was on a stand in the garage, is no more.
    B18 with all forged internals. Completely rebuilt to specs. Makes me feel sick knowing how much work was put into the engine.

    Well, if anything, you can set it out as a lawn ornament. and use it as a potter, since it comes with built in openings. Kinda like how they take old oil rigs and ship superstructures and sink them in the ocean to create artificial coral reefs.

    Besides, no one else has a burnt up engine in their lawn with flowers growing out of it.
