    Possibly three as even though I have never seen one, or photos of any, apparently some were mfg also as two doors for some earlier and/or export markets based on the Wiki.

    Okay, she ran the 10.29?
     
  11. Yes she did. She made 3 passes over the weekend. The last pass on Sunday was a 10.29 / 131.

    No surprise... she has a 6.00 Top Dragster license and has gone 7.49 / 181 in a super comp dragster. She's darn right dangerous on the tree as well.

    Ron Leek, The very good Meltdown announcer not only said "Perfect" for "Prefect" but he mispronounces "Anglia" too. Something like "angula".

    I liked his story about crewing for the "Greek".

    Think wrbw32 was 'phoneticizing' 'attoiney'. (it's a New York thing)

    The attorney mentioned 'irony' as he paced before the jury. His suit showed wrinkles from sitting, so during the recess, a young girl who noticed innocently asked, "Is that a 'law suit'?

  21. My favorite is when someone sees a tunnel ram intake and says "it's got a blower".

    Couldn't stand it any more, looked up prefect. "Put in front, i.e. in charge." Sounds like it fits that little beast pretty good.

  28. You could have educated her without making her feel bad by explaining that the model of car was a Ford Prefect and that the name was a little play on words. She sounds intelligent enough to have understood, and then wouldn't run the risk of ridicule for having not understood :) We need to educate the youngin's without putting them down if we expect them to learn ;)
