    Blackjack-

    Sorry

    That's a replica built buy MB but not original....... but fakes are becoming more traditional daily :)

    I once offered to race one of those for "pinks" with this little Victorian car I owned many years

    They declned, good job for them. Goddeu would go 30+ two up

  16. Bluto - yes I know but it was so nicely done. Did you ever do the London to Brighton in that??

    Just started detailling the 347 Pontiac in my modified - but there's not a lot available off the shelf so I'm making or adapting stuff. Not in this picture but I have just fitted a really neat fuel filter off a Huey on the firewall.

    Wow, great collection of "traditional" stuff. But, just because someone makes, or did make, a part that will fit your engine, etc does not mean you have to install it. The Low Ridders have to have every accessory ever made on their Bombs, Billet Guys have to have every billet part, etc. An engine, a car, etc should be done with some forethought and class. Not just a bolt on bling-bling whore. Some cars the owner will say it is done, others are not done as long as they can bolt on one more goodie. My 2 cents.
