Restoration Failure

This 1966 MG MGB has less than 100 miles since restoration at another shop, which incidentally is no longer is around. The rod bearings were completely worn out, the timing chain tensioner had never been engaged, and camshaft key was almost completely sheared off. Now machined properly and back together the owner can finally enjoy their family heirloom.

This engine has a 10:1 compression ratio, makes 9 pounds of boost, and produces 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque with 100 octane fuel. On our dyno with this configuration and running 91 octane for testing purposes we are seeing 541 horsepower and 613 lb-ft. of torque.

The Modern World

After dealing with modem-like speeds from our DSL provider since opening we have finally been upgraded to a fiber connection, also known as a usable internet! This should improve communication, allow for quicker updates, and for those car clubs whom we host their websites — quicker updates and more features.

Before: 1957 Lloyd LP-600 Alexander

The Lloyd Alexander featuring a four-speed gear-box was offered, in parallel with the Lloyd 600, between 1957 and 1961. One difference visible from the outside was that the Lloyd Alexander included an opening hatch into the rear luggage locker, whereas drivers of the Lloyd 600 had to reach behind the rear seat in order to access the luggage locker.

Super Swamper

This 1973 Pinzgauar 710M ten person troop transporter now wears a set of Interco Narrow S.S. “Super Swamper” tires. The original prototype was developed around 1969 and production began in 1971, as a successor of the Steyr-Daimler-Puch Haflinger 700 AP 4×4 light military multi purpose offroad vehicle.
