Porsche Engine Cylinders Recycled as Wine Bottle Coolers

Sports car maker Porsche offers wine bottle chillers that are taken out of old 911 G-series air-cooled engines. Can you find one from a '73 Vega? No, which is a pity, because nothing cools like an aluminum engine block.

I don't think the ability to climb an icy hill has much to do with the engine. Usually more to do with driver skill. Or if you have an automatic it's more in the transmission.

We actually found a faulty transmission to be good on ice and snow and when fixed it was hopeless.

Once the oil leak was fixed it was a doozie. Mine carried a 440 Dodge engine in the rear for about 50 miles up the Houston interstates (before the leak was fixed) & then climbed an icy hill near Pittsburgh when other newer cars could not climb it.

This has been done so many times before. And various items of furniture too. I know several people who've built wine racks from engine blocks - and probably a sight cheaper than Porsche will do it for you. I've lost count of the number of petrolhead houses I've visited where an engine block is the base of a glass topped cofee table.
