The website has been updated now with most of the Porsche pictures taken last fall. The videos are yet to come.

Other projects we have been engaged in include:

1974 BMW 2002 Turbo rally car - resurrecting a street car from a former rally car. Looks stock, but it isn't. :-) We are getting lots of help from our buddy TJ correcting design issues with the configuration and correcting issues with the configuration put together for the rally car. The engine is at Auto Service and Suppy where Matt will inspect the components and hone and replace the pistons at the very least. TJ will talk to Steve Bauer in Port Perry and draw on his experience with M10 and S14 motors to get a feeling as to what HP our stroked M10 with an S14 crank and rods can handle.We will create a separate entry under the Projects tab.

1961 Jaguar flat floor E-type - restoration. The tub and bonnet were done by Paul at Grove Auto Metal. We picked up the tub at Ken Mason along with all the parts to be had in early January. The bonnet required a trip to Paul's.  Parts are laid out on the floor awaiting my ministrations. We will create a separate entry under the Projects tab to track the progress of this project


1971 Ford F100 - 3 on the tree transmission linkage fix

1991 Landrover - Replaced broken console and broken speedo drive gears in transmission

1974 BMW 2002 Turbo Silver - Picked up this beauty in California. Nicely restored needing very little to make it perfect

1974 BMW 2002 Turbo Silver

1974 BMW 2002 Turbo White - Repaired some damage to front spoiler, painted, and applied turbo decals

1974 BMW 2002 Turbo another white one - applied missing decals along sides

2008 Radical SR8 - Transaxle suffered catastrophic failure. After deciding to rebuild it rather than replace it, then came the comparison shopping for components looking for price and availability. We went with Radical UK as the supplier. Now just awaiting delivery.
