    How could anyone tell? With all the good beer out there why would anyone drink this rice and corn based swill in the first place? There used to be a place in DC called the Brickskeller. They had...

    Re: Any B-17 experts here?

    Looks like an ERCO (maybe) or Motor Products (likely) from a B24. Could have been a field mod, or perhaps a test. The E model had only a flex mounted forward firing gun, and the Germans especially...

    Re: Interesting Propostition

    So Doug, here is how I might approach it. (I had a 64 anglia estate loong ago) The Cortina estate looks like a pretty cool car, and in decent shape. (I may have missed some inbetween threads...) What...

    Re: Glass fuses

    Sometimes the solder that secures the actual fuse wire to the end caps will melt (More common on high amp fuses) causing similar problems. That can be frustrating to find, as the test probe...

    Re: Saab 9-3 - Need Information

    My advice?? Walk up to it, turn 180 degrees, and run like ****. Saab is out of business. Electronic parts are already hard to come by, Saab specific parts are no longer being made. Sure, it is a nice...

    Re: Jaguar MkII's with 6cyl or V8 motors?

    The V12 is a lot wider tho, and that makes fitting it to one of the small sedans trickey The easiest way to go on a retrofit might be to buy a rusty but running series 3 XJ6. It is a 4.2 version of...

    Re: What to buy? My Explorer is dead!

    I would just have a tranny put in the exploder unless there are other pressing/pending issues with it. Otherwise a 93 through 97 XJ6 Jag is cheap reliable transportation. (Yes, that is a true...

    Re: AH vs E Type

    Ya'll are funny, I LIKE the later 2+2s just fine. Longer wheelbase, and bigger doors... And from the drivers seat, you can't really tell. The only thing they lose out on is when you turn for a look...

    Re: Goodwood on Speed

    I really liked the dice between the MK1 Jag and the A40. Couple of MK7s in that one as well. The Can Am was good too, but disappointed at no McLaren MK8s. I have GOT to attend that some day.

    Can the vibration be reproduced with the car on a lift? The guibos are pretty trouble free if not visibly cracked, but make sure the bolts are tight. It seems that the standard XJR wheels bend fairly...
