Isn't it interesting. One is definitely not enough! The joy of multiples is you can experiment and compare. I am planning to do a T5 gearbox swap and will try it to start with the really long (0.63) 5th to start to see if that resolves the issue of motorway work. Will put a 3.55 in one othe others and compare.

Nowhere near as tidy as some of the previous cars but here are mine. The shot was taken before I acquired a +2 shell. And my wife thinks I have a problem! Some people.

Coving? Hell, I know a guy here in the Atlanta area who put wainscoting, fancy paint, and a crystal chandelier in his garage! At the time, said garage was home to an '87 Esprit and a '67 Ford Hearse.
