Jim Crank sent me a beautiful picture of the newly restored 4 cylinder Doble "E" engine from E-14, Barney Becker's famed Betsy. Betsy wiped the doors off a totally rebuilt and highly modified SJ Duesenburg, ...twice!! 
The picture is about as close to what a factory new "E" looked like as anything around---what a beautiful piece of work, all 150-200 horsepower of it!
