    FTFY. Impressively clean, lowish miles; probably as close as you're going to come to your unicorn for a while. A week or two either way with the miata/jeep wouldn't be the worst thing in the world...:twisted:

    Ownership Verified: 1995 Jaguar XJR manual

    Oh, I generated plenty of smoke trying to jump a loose connection to ground before figuring out the terminal block the wire broke from was actually a capacitor!<_<derp

    I'll have to see if I can dig up any pictures of it... The plastic is the most delightful shade of pink after 26 years in the sun.:lol: You're right on the steel though, good ol' galvanizing. Hearsay on my part based on what I'm told by the one doing the refreshing.

    I know where he can get a nice running one. Recently refreshed electronics! Only minorly debilitating rust issues!

    Woodward Dream Cruise (Michigan) - August 20, 2016

    My first thought would have been to always dismiss Canada, but 90 miles brings the break even/risk assessment closer than I'd have thought. But that's it's a bit easier to make the decision considering :lol:

    Woodward Dream Cruise (Michigan) - August 20, 2016

    I'm up for giving it a shot this year. Sounds like a better chance of meeting up rather than last year's "constant distance from each other maintaining position in the parade circling up and down the strip". Still fun, but a different experience... Also, for whatever reason, I got a major case...

    Ownership Verified: My 1992 Peugeot 405 Mi16

    At 2300 lbs, and with its short gearing and rev happy engine, I wasn't ever left wanting with mine, though, in modern context, it's certainly not the fastest car.

    Congratulations! It is indeed, the finest french ff 4 door sports saloon in its class! Now, find where the CPS is so I can fix mine! That's the one!

    Foam core? You could probably do a pretty decent job laying it up like CF. I'll second the boat builder/repair. One of my friends picked up a bumper roll of glass ~6'x10' for $20. Too short to make a boat, but plenty for the skateboards he was making at the time. Leveraging their experience...

    I thought you were being facetious about how often firefox updates. Then I checked the copy I have on my work computer. By golly, it's at 40.0...
