Congrats on the cover shots of your viva scott!

Btw- my HB has a 3.7 to 1 magnum axle which will be spot on I think for a mixture of cruising and spirited driving! :D

Its been a while since Ive been on this forum, looking through this thread and the rest of the forum has made me see what Ive been missing!

Ive not had any luck finding another HB so kind of gave up for a while.

Ive been too distracted by house stuff, a TVR and motorbikes....

Scott.

Hi Phil, I had to sell it just before I got it finished to buy another house. Ive moved back down to Fife now.

Ah, so you moved back to the Kingdom of Fife eh?
Huntly too hectic for you?? Just as well I didn't go knocking on your door!!

Life treating you well offshore?

I've got the engine back in the Firenza, just need to sort out a couple little issues with electrics and hoses before I get her fired up.
Also, my new stainless manifold is right up against the rail on the inner wing so need to see if I can get any adjustment on it or else there's going to be a hell of a vibration!!

Good luck in the hunt for another HB, if I hear of anything I'll give you a shout.

Take care,

Phil
