Getting all of this info from Wikipedia
The 57 Chevy used an inline 6 cylinder engine known as the Blue Flame Six. This was more smooth running and fuel efficient than the small-block V-8 engine seen in the 55 Chevy. It was also more reliable than the V-8 engine, and certainly more durable than a Rice Krispie Treat, albeit not as tasty. Several versions of the V-8 engine were optional, but the Blue Flame Six was the base engine. The optional engines offered were the two-barrel, four barrel carburetors, and a fuel injected version of a 283 cubic inch V8, as well as a two-barrel version of the 265 cid V8 from previous years and the inline six cylinder.
A V engine is a common configuration for an internal combustion engine. It has the cylinders and pistons aligned on two separate planes, typically at a 60 or 90 degree angle, forming a V shape. The 90 degree angle has optimal firing and vibrational characteristics, but is not as space efficient as the 60 degree angle, which has higher vibrations and less balance. This decrease in balance can be compensated for with counterweights and a balance shaft, though this results in a slower acceleration and deceleration of the engine, due to the increased mass. The V configuration greatly reduces the overall length, height, and weight of the engine. A V8 engine is a V engine with eight cylinders.
to be continued later…feeling kinda out of it.
I’m starting to consider just glueing a bunch of rice krispie treats to my car, even though it’s not a ‘57 Chevy. I’m guessing they would fall off fairly quickly if I did, though…certainly wouldn’t hold on at higher speeds. And, if they did, I think they would go bad eventually…
It’s amazing how hard it is to find how long it takes for a food to go bad…

Rice Krispie Treats are made up of Rice Krispies, melted butter or margarine, and melted marshmallows.
Now…obviously, if this is broken down, it won’t be a rice krispie treat anymore, but I want to do it anyway, just to see if I can :)
According to Wikipedia, Rice Krispies are made of crisped rice (big surprise), which is rice and sugar paste. Lower down on the page, it gives a list of ingredients. I, personally, am having a lot of difficulty following the list, so I’ll just leave it to the side for now.
Butter is churned milk, so I think it’s safe to consider it another form of milk. Margarine is a butter substitute, and I am feeling very lazy at the moment, so I am not even going to take a look at it. Wikipedia says that milk is comprised of water, protein, fat, carbohydrates, lactose, cholesterol, calcium, and fatty acids (saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated). I will assume that this is true.
Finally, marshmallows (again, according to Wikipedia) are comprised of sugar, corn syrup, water, gelatin, dextrose, and vanilla flavorings. Dextrose is a sugar (I think), so I will just call it another form of sugar. Corn Syrup is made of starch from Maize, maltose, and oligosaccharides. Gelatin is derived from collagen, which is a group of naturally occurring proteins, and Wikipedia doesn’t have a page on Vanilla flavourings.
Moving back to rice, Wikipedia says it is comprised of carbohydrates, sugars, dietary fiber, fat, protein, water, and (I think) various vitamins.
So…summing it up, Rice Krispie Treats are made of water, protein, fats, carbohydrates, sugars, fiber, and vitamins. That is, assuming I understood Wikipedia correctly…which I might not have.
This does not sound like a material that would survive being a car’s engine, but I will investigate further. :)
Adding this here for the fun of it. I am not going to seriously pursuit it, and am, in fact, skeptical that I will ever succeed in this universe, but it would be highly amusing to succeed in doing this, wouldn’t it?
Oh…and, as a side note, I don’t even know what a 57 Chevy looks like. Just saying. :)
