I know it’s only a small thing but I often wonder why our Hymer has a red badge on the bonnet saying "power"? I haven’t seen one on any other Fiat, and the only idea I have is maybe it’s because our van has the 180 engine? Anyone else got one?

Noticed most Burstners have a Burstner badge in place of the Fiat one. Probably just trying to hide the fact of it being a Fiat instaed of something decent like a Mercedes :reel:

If I remember rightly didn’t they fit them to Chevy pick ups ?

They certainly did in its many sizes it has appeared in a lot of Chevy/GM vehicles. They stopped making the 8.1L version of the big block a few years back and it more or less killed off Workhorse the RV chassis manufacturer for a good while. It is truely a magnificent engine, ticks over at 600rpm and purrs along on the flat at 1400rpm when doing 60mph and coupled to the Allison transmission makes an orgasmic power plant. :gum:

There is no truth in the rumour, put out by the Very @old-mo TypeFellaPerson, that I have recorded the sound of the engine under load and listen to it through my headphones whilst sipping a glass of lightly chilled.:wasntme:
