Asking for a friend, really
G

I'm wondering how you're going to get that big pumpkin up the backside of that little car?

A guy I know is  putting a turbo charged Meteor engine with twin cam heads in and Early Australian body Fairlaine
Well he thinks he is, I'm not convinced, to run at Lake Gairdiner.
Talking about it at the last Committee meeting, Lionel was just shaking his head, and Rod just sat there catching flys, although he may have been asleep
And Lionel's ordered the tyre

Actually, my question reminds me of a similar and pertinent one about Djembes,
"I am absolutely certain that drum won't fit up your arse however to remain so without proof would be foolish."

Have you bought a new car yet.

They tow a trailer like nothing else

Probably better off with a twin carb laser motor, wasn't a Meteor just a Laser with a boot? :roll:

It looks like my mind was in the gutter as usual, I took it to be a RR Meteor like Rod stuck in his 55! Elephants & sewing machines! :roll:
