Lotus in top 10 cars & valve clearance

Land Rover is owned by Ford.

On the subject of shims, the guys who installed the new valve seats
cut them a little to deep. I had a few thou taken from the underside
of the cam followers, so that I could get shims that were thin enough.
I did take a thou off a couple of the shims on a oil stone but don't
recommend it as it takes forever.

4 brits, 4 germans, 1 yank and 1 plate of pasta.......its a fair
spread.......although not strictly true, but I was going for the
original country of origin and ownership
The list I suppose now reads
1 Ford
2 Porsche Aktiengesellschaft
3 DRB-Hicom (protons parent company)
4 DaimlerChrysler
6 Ford
7 VW/Audi
8 Range Rover.....mmmm....owned by land rover...owned by

Its official. Lotus is a cool car and attracts the opposite sex. I

just been reading the MSN website and they did a survey of the 10
cars for men to drive to attract women.
Who would have thought that a 30 year old rust bucket in need of
would be a "babe magnet".
I am just off to find that bottle of Brut or High Karate aftershave

hidden for special occasions.
