Whilst surfing for unusual race cars I found this...the McCandless 500

I wonder if it had anything to do with Cromie McCandless, he was a Northern Irish Grand Prix motorcycle road racer. His best season was in 1951, when he finished in third place in the 125cc world championship behind Carlo Ubbiali and Gianni Leoni. McCandless won two Grand Prix races during his career.
I've seen him a few times in the TT parade lap they used to do every year bringing out the famous old race bikes of the past, ridden by some famous past racers.

Fageol Twin Coach Special.

Two supercharged 91cu in Offenhauser motors were attached to a Miller-Ford front-wheel-drive transaxle. One drove the front, while the other was turned around to power the rear.

Technically that would be Cooper Porsche as the car name comes before the engine

I hadn’t heard of Glickenhaus until they finished 3rd and 4th at Le Mans this weekend!
4th & 5th last year which was the first time I'd heard of them.
