If you're going all the way to Bellingham, you might as well make the short jaunt up to Vancouver and show me that beast in person! :p

Bah, then I'd need to deal with the border.

Would that thing be able to cross the border? :-D

I think my best border story was when I was driving down to Oregon in my old CJ5. The guy takes my passenger and my passports looks at them, asks "where are you headed?" I reply, "South Oreogon, to meet up with some friends." He looks at my Jeep and says, "In THAT?! Ok, have fun." And he let me go.

I don't think he was being entirely sincere with the "Have fun" part. :lol:

I have enough trouble with the 5k RPM rev limiter that is imposed when the engine is cold, it must be miserable to be limited to 4k for hundreds of miles :blink:

I was given the green light to start revving it. Holy mother of God.

Another $600 another problem fixed. The last guy who worked on the car didn't hook up the ignition correctly which resulted in the plugs being fouled once a week.

I'm starting to think I might sell the thing at some point.

I plan on selling the MG soon as I hardly drive it anymore now that I have a working motorcycle. If anyone here is interested PM me.

There goes the weirdest, quirkiest car of FG. It's been fun reading the updates here. Any replacements planned?

My Guzzi is the replacement. :) It wasn't a practical car in the city and I've found motorcycles to be more enjoyable.
