It was kinda like the mini Austin would have made if they were making Fords.. You almost never had to break into a corner if you kept winter tires on.. Willing to bet my hat that your cooling pwobs (leaks and cracked rads aside) mostly related to ignition timing being a little hot - but that gave them a serious fun factor so everyone set them that way.. I have often thought about picking a rusted out one from a yard and taking it ice racing come winter around here - it might even make a decent clubman rally outfit if I took out the, what, 6 and half pounds of interior?.. -- J Dexter - webmaster - http://www.dexterdyne.org/ all tunes - no cookies no subscription no weather no ads no news no phone in - RealAudio 8+ Required - all the Time Radio Free Dexterdyne Top Tune o'be-do-da-day Martin Lee - You Was http://www.dexterdyne.org/888/098.RAM
