The off topic thread here https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/off-topic-discussion/minor-confession-thread/63854/page191/#post2740693

made me think for a few minutes about engine sizes I've owned. 6.3l (383), 1.8, 302, 350, 351, 3.0, 289, 3.5, 2.3 turbo, 3.2, 2.8, 5.4, 4.0, 3.8, 304...never a supercharged engine, factory or aftermarket.

Makes me want to create a checklist of engines I need to own

The 3 responses above are what made me think the topic was interesting.

Some have owned everything imaginable, and some are tight within a group. No corollary for society, I think, but fun and interesting nonetheless.

1.6 to 7.5L in cars and trucks, unless I get to count the Wolseley, which doesn't actually have an engine with it, but would get me down to 1.0L based on what came in it from the factory.

In motorcycles, from 160 to 1000cc.

Model airplanes from 0.010 cubic inches to 0.35 cubic inches :)
