Ask Jay: Steam Engines, Trucks and Corvettes

Jay answers the questions you asked! Ever wonder about the viability of steam engines for modern cars? Get the dope on Jay's Doble, and hear what he has to say about his favorite Vettes and the trucks you didn't know he had.
I've always wondered about the viability of modern steam engines for cars. Your video segment of the Doble steamer piqued my curiosity, so I started searching around to find out what kind of fuel mileage the Doble got. Eventually, I stumbled upon an interview between Abner Doble and some other people, and Abner said: "It will run 15 miles to the gallon of kerosene under favorable conditions, and will average about 11.5 miles per gallon..." Can you confirm this?
Jay, I noticed that for such a large and varied collection you don't have many trucks. Just curious why?
Love the site. Keep up the good work.
Hi Jay - I know you're a big Corvette fan (me too). But I notice you don't have any C2s or C3s in your collection. Just curious why.
Jay, will you ever own any older Corvettes? C1, C2, C3?
Good Vette question... Jay, why don't you have any 50s or 60s Vettes? Why don't you have a 1953?
