Is your car all ready for its boat ride Bruce ?
What if UFOs are just us from the future coming back in time to sight see?
Or might be to snatch women?

Good question and timing Phil...
I have gone down hill rapidly, and in fact writing this from hospital.
The old boy, the humpy that is! is finished and ready to drive on after an oil and filter change, not by me any more, but unfortunately I'm not.
So disappointedly the whole adventure is off.
But other goals have been achieved.
Even if I am discharded tommorrow, being in poor health, Tasmania is too far away from my oncology doctor and hospital.

One of the highlights was to meet yourself and Denis, i am very disappinted from that aspect too.

So from my perspective it would have fool hardy, i couldn't drive on the track, fact i can't drive at all due pain relief drugs, and unfair on my family if i have another turn while there,or even the stress of anticipation.
I would have trouble driving Baskerville at present let alone in a fast humpy.  My mates who have finished it off and run it in have complimented on the mechanical rebuild, to qoute "s@#$ Bruce did this go this fast before!!!", So that made me happy.
Corvette season hurry up? Well Corvette for me :)

That would have given you a real buzz Bruce, when you are in the process of hotting up a motor, you are questioning yourself  the whole time " I wonder how much difference this change will make? " :) :) :)

Hey Bruce, it's important to look after yourself right now, the humpy will be waiting for you when you're feeling up to it. I'm sure you will get a chance to try her out for yourself soon enough.

Praying for you mate.

He has has expired fj race cars as a young bloke and still a top hit rod builder painter has driven some cars, yep "stroked my ego" hehe
It hadn't had any.major work in 15 years other than normal servicing and had some hard work especially at hill climbs ( and dare I say it... Towing Caravan, man it was tough getting if the line even on the flat!!)
It had only started to take the protective white cover film off the bigend bearings, and the bore and ring lands didn't need any work.
So same bearing sizes in, rings were now off catalogue, so 2 sets $60! Can't resist a bargain and ready for next rebuild  :D ).
But my machinist mate said "let's take a little more off here this time. Ohhhh and gee these new exhaust valves have machined up well..."
Plus to be more awkward went side draft Weber( well now Dellohrto).
Very pleased I started and finished all the mechanical early got 90% done, that would have been a personal disappoint.
At least we have no control over the health issue. :)

Everyone is thinking of you here at XGN mate. Everytime we run an old (I mean CLASSIC) car some one says it is easier or more difficult or same as the COBRA!!
