Taplers, in the early sixties Oldsmobile produced the 215 V8 all
aluminium with cast steel liners with a turbocharger. The cool
thing was it was water injected, the "water" you had to buy from
Oldsmobile dealer which was a mixture of water and alchohol.
It was was called the F85 Jetfire and it was a hot little car, with
the 4 speed you could lay rubber in at least three gears as I recall.
Not bad for 63!
