Talking some serious anti-sway bars on that car.

It's nice, but this was really floating my boat when I was looking last night:

Someone buy my TVR so I can bid on it...

I remember that TR4 running the East coast during Nationals.

Wow, the 4 almost looks too straight to be a long time racer. A lot of time must have been spent on the body.
Saw the Vitesse run at MidOhio many years ago. It was quite a strong runner that weekend.
Both cars would be a ball.

I like that triple master cylinder/ Wildwood brake setup, I need something like that!

Hey Matrryanmusic,welcome to the craziest forum on the planet. Nice to see someone from the City of Destiny on board.
What type of 8 is in that thing?

302 ford out of a 74 Mustang with a c3 auto Tranny. I started a thread with pics of my car in the new users part of the forum. Hit me up if you hear of any Triumphs criusing since we're having such nice weather

That sucks, mine is stuck in the garage until I get a 5 buck brake switch from Moss Motors. With any luck it'll be here on Friday right when the weather heads south....

One of those plastic jobs?. I would use 1 out of a different make. The ones the big 3 sell are not the best quality.

I thought about trying to get a local brake light switch, but my local Autozone parts girl gave me a blank stare when I tried explaining to her that I needed a generic switch. It was easier to order one out of the Moss catalog that is the same as what I have now, we'll see how well it works, It was only 5 bucks anyways and I don't have to do any mods to the way it is mounted.

Check out the Hot Rod and auto electric sites they have lots. I must say my 6 still has the plastic and it is on the list to change it as I can't keep it adjusted right.

Hey Don,
Please re direct any more comment's about my car to my new members thread, that way we don't get this thread to Off topic:https://www.britishcarforum.com/bcforum/ubbthreads.php/ubb/showflat/Number/419370#Post419370

Thanks,
Matt

Off topic in this place is a common occurrence.

Well, if you want to get Off-Topic, A buddy of mine sent me a link to the Gene Simmons/Shannon Tweed Sex Tape today.

Matty,

Mentioning things like that will get you more than off topic. I know that you meant nothing, but Basil is very strict about language and content.

And welcome to the forum!
