  9. Checkin' in. Took the Coupe to GOW at Prescott Hillclimb over the weekend. Performed faultlessly as overladen camping chariot on the 160 mile drive down at a steady 55-65, surprisingly well as hillclimb missile once emptied of tools and stuff, but copious revs over the weekend have caused a rod to politely knock for some attention. The last 40 miles or so nursed her home OK. After 12 years of abuse, in three different vehicles and thousands of miles I guess it'll be the civil thing to do to open up the sump and give the required restorative action to my favourite diamond B... photo by John Isaacs

    That barrelnose car is just right, in my humble opinion. Nice looking dog, too. I can't imagine a more enjoyable automobile for a dog to ride in. That's a compliment, by the way.

    Just picked up this little roadster, picking up a downdraft intake this weekend and some 35 ford wires.

    Does anyone know the length of the board required to adjust the brakes? The car easily makes it up to 40mph, coming back to 0 on the other hand is another story.
