Ultracapacitors

For years we have been testing homemade ultracapacitor banks in the old cars such as the one on the right. Now commercially available they are a considerable upgrade on original generator powered cars giving you constant power for lamps, quicker charging, easier on the generator, and most of all is not affected from being fully discharged if your car sits around. Due to the power output they are dangerous if you are not careful so do not install one yourself if you are unsure how to do so.

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.

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.
