    Which allowed me to take the little car for a run , 100 miles or so on a glorious Autumn day.
    Still T shirt weather but a bit cool in the shadows.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Saw this mythical BMW Z M coupe the other day. Supposedly the design was so good that it drove like a go cart on a AFX slot track

    IMG_1089 (1).jpgwell its not vintage yet, buts its mine. Its really a racing car impersonating a cathedral. 650 hp twin turbocharged V12 with full time all wheel drive. I bought it new in 2015 and its likely I'll keep it forever.

    This is a video inspection of a very original 1966 E Type Jaguar. I follow the guy's channel, He's Canadian and works with his Dad repairing and restoring Jaguars.

    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    At the time I bought my first Riley for 25, I could have bought a 1934 Aston Martin for 50. Value now- ouch!
    My pal bought it, and broke it to sell the parts for a profit. I bet it's now the basis of an Ulster somewhere...

    PS: it looked like this...

    The Iso reminds me of the Gordon Keeble.

    Both by Bertone.
    I think the G-K is the better one.

    A friend had one back in the 60s. I didn't realize, back then, that they only made a hundred of them. He moved onto a V8 aluminium TVR.

    A guy I knew took a Lola CanAm car, put a street 327 in it (300HP or so), added turn indicators, wipers & a few other things & got it registered. There was nothing on the road that could catch him. Including cops - though he did finally discover that radio is faster...

    ^ I don't hate it but I can't read the data plate. Although it does look a bit new in the numbers area.

    Pretty ambiguous ad. If it's constructed from a basically dead/wrecking yard car I have no problem with it.

    I just pushed this one out the door...
    New B20b Engine and trans, semi-metallic brakes, cunifer brake lines, 1" sway bars, Konis, rebuilt SU's, 4-2-1 exhaust, etc., it is off to the tire store.
    Next stop is Orcas Island...

    I never had a 544, but I sure had a bunch of 122s & 2 1800s. Wonderful cars in so many ways. Are you off to Orcas on a trip - or are you selling it?

    Certainly not a pretty CanAm car - but interesting! Kicked butt for a season until banned.
