      All correct except its not a Cummins - it's a Commer TS3. Really cool bit of kit, sounds like a British equivalent to a Detroit two-stroke.

      Here's some stuff I've shot over the years. Love the idea of this thread. For those of you seriously into this sorta thing, there's a great book called "Inside The Paddock"...

      Yeah, I saw one of those and I described it as "Utterly Beige". Could also double as a hearing aid.

      Sooooo.... are they titled? Are they legal? EPA paperwork?? Import Docs???

      These are the things you should be asking. A notarized bill of sale and an old NH reg don't mean squat to the EPA when...

      Looks like it checks out pretty well. I 2nd the double check for any structural rust, but beyond that you're good to go. Looks like a nicely maintained mo-sheen.

      Yeah, that is cool! Wheels could easily be undone. I'm sure you could offload those in an urban area rather quickly. :thumbup:

      Six Cylinder XJR. Or if you want an XJS, look for a 4.0L coil on plug six-cylinder. They're lighter than the 6.0L V12, nearly as powerful and way WAY WWWAAAYYY more reliable. It's actually a...

      Wonder if he'd still be into her when she's covered in skin grafts.

      That bugs the hell out of me. A rider in full gear up front with his "pillion decoration" of a girlfriend wearing skimpy...

      They have a strong following, but only among Cosworth Vega enthusiasts. Price is about right for a decent example. They real problem with them is that, aside from the cylinder head, it's still a Vega.

      Some great riding out here! I was so pleased to discover that when I got here. There are some epic roads that I explore on my bike then think... "Boy, I want to come back here in the 2002" :laugh:...

      We never did dipping because there's no way to guarantee the crevasses and and box sections were completely clear of the chemical... plus its just a nasty process. Media blasting was our preferred...

      My thinking is to clean the areas as I work, because it's not going to be a quick project. That way, at least there's paint still on the areas I'm not working on.... I'll consult with my panel-beater...

      Panels are available, lots new from BMW and lots of aftermarket. So it's pretty straight forward in terms of getting the body back in action. Common rust areas are available in patches, which makes...

      The Grand Am of that era was SOOOO far behind the times it was just embarrassing. I remember Road and Track commenting that at the launch of the last Grand Am, the GM Boffins were touting the fact...

      A rotisserie is high on my priority list, but I certainly don't want to buy a typical commercially available one, but haven't really come up with a design for home built version. I'd though about...
