I saw that in the TROG coverage, however I have not seen how the drivetrain is hooked up.
What’s up with the cooling system on the front engine? That is some strange plumbing there.

That's a re-creation of the Kenz & Lentz (sp??) twin powered truck. It ran at Bonneville back in the day

I also saw that twin Flathead engine truck at Trog West, Pismo Beach, Ca., a couple years ago, and took a bunch of pictures. I may have posted pictures of that truck here, along with many other pictures taken at that event.

"Kenz and Leslie" out of Denver. They started with this truck and ended up with the famous "777" streamliner, also powered by two flatheads.

Tubman.
The last version of that liner had three flatheads.

The truck was at the Lone Star Roundup a couple of years ago. Pretty impressive.
