The Leaper Under the Lean To Mate?

I actually have no idea what the owner said regarding this S-type. But, my friend Chris Mosera spied it while he winds his way around Australia. Nice catch.

Steel vs. Wire

I received a set of very rusty steel wheels with my MK2 when I bought it about 3 years ago.

Sitting as they were in my basement getting rustier, I decided to do something about it.

So, I had them sand blasted and powder coated. Good thing my Dad works for a sand blaster and powder coater. I went for a semi-gloss navy blue. Which matches the leather and carpets.

Now, for all the BaT fans out there if I ever sell my car they can chuck on the steel wheels. I love BaT but they harp on one style of execution for cars too much and always opting for steel wheels over wires is a bit boring. I actually like the wires on my car. The steel wheels make a standard MK2 look dowdy. If you are going with the Coombs look, steel wheels look cool.

Any way, judge for yourself.

Race Time Zones

I've been wanting a clock for the garage.

And while at Goodwill today in Westport I found this three zone clock. A few moments on the printer and - a really cool racing clock.

Just stripped entire front suspension. Getting it powder coated. New brakes. New rotors.

All brought on by need for new bushings and adjustable coil overs. While you're in there...
