I have a Wayne 100 that is being refurbished, I have communicated with at least 4 other Wayne 100 owners. As you probably know the Wayne 100 is the product of the inventive mind of Wayne Horning who gained hot rodding fame for his Wayne 12 Port head, of crossflow design. When fitted to inline 6 GMC’s and Chevys it became the racing nemesis and regularly beat the flathead Fords that reigned s the hot rodders engine choice. Matt Nall’s web site at my last visit had pictures and information about a Glasspar hulled Wayne 100 he owned. Tom Keosabian owns a later Tahiti hulled Wayne 100, I have accumulated photos of other Wayne 100s, a Hot Rod Mag, Popular Science articles and copies of his US and Canadian Patents. In my opinion Horning was an ingenious hot rodder that deserves to be ranked among the best. I have a Picasa web album, not well captioned or organized that I will send you the link to it. I encourage you to rescue the Wayne 100 even if just for parts but it sounds like it is original and complete. The lower units I think were unique and the parts and castings are gone. It's a novel vertically mounted dry sump engine that exhibits the Horning ingenuity as to cooling. I was hoping that someone would create a “registry” for the Wayne 100s. I also hope this post is not redundant or the VV equivalent of “reinventing the wheel”.
