    Re: Replacing the witches nose in-situ. BN1

    Re: 1956 Nasty Boy

    There is something a bit suspicious about this car and its recent history. The last 2 times it was on Ebay, both in MA, it had a title. Now all of a sudden it is in NJ and is sold only with a bill...

    Re: Austin Healey 100 engine color
