Kiwi:

I agree, I love old race cars as they were parked. If I had the money and the storage I would have a bunch of them.



WOW! shocked That really is a period race car, it'd be a shame to throw all that away.
How about we rattle the bushes n see if we can find you an undesirable stock one to hack up?

Too bad it only takes Jay Leno/Billy Joel type money to preserve & restore auto racing history . . . . . .  sad

I wish my dad had suggested finance to me as a career instead of engineering, then I'd be able to pay guys to restore stuff for me . . . cry
Oh, well.   Too late to change careers now.   Take heed warspite . . . . .   be careful about what you wish for . . . . .

Looks like I stepped in it with a friend.   embarassed

Sorry, Trent.

There's just so damned many "specialty" parts for this thing that so many suppliers don't stock - they've got me by the nutz.

No worries, that's why I put in the grinning smiley. Off the wall specialty cars can be a PIA dealing with niche suppliers.
