    Many of the "MotorSport" publications are good for many different cars. "Tuning S.U. Carburettors" is one.

    Another neat thing was the double-boom as they came back in for touch-down. That turn maneuver seemed to occur right above our hovel!

    Never owned one, worked on a few. Learned fairly quickly why it's said the words "French" and "engineering" should never be used in the same sentence. Mutually exclusive terms.
