Stopped by my mechano's to bring them an Xmas cake and they had this block sitting on a bench. It is from a 1932 Rolls. 86 years old and it just needed some polishing (and new pistons, waiting to go in).

Beyond the engineering of these early engines, you have to admire the use of various metals to achieve a look which more modern engines lack; its true art.

There was also a practical imperative. Brass doesn't spark if something hits it so there was less chance of fire (or backfire).

Back before cars were seen as disposable items and building them was a true labour of love.

Full radius velocity stacks. Pay attention! They knew how it works back then but people still put pancake filters on their cars.

In my mind the 1930s was truly the Golden Age of automobile and Aero design and development. There were so many remarkable developments and achievements in what now seems a primitive time. RR certainly understood how to make V motors...and there were others.
