I've got more than enough projects at the moment, thank you...

That said, this came across the screen at $10,500 and piqued my interest... LINK 1966 S-type and one of the cheaper cars that outfit sells. But don't worry, the stuff I'm smoking isn't THAT good that it would make me buy such a car in a moment of irrationality!

Not trying to take over your thread but a couple more "beauts" came across my screen today... I look at one europooper and FBM thinks I'm in the market!

Just in time for winter! 1976 Triumph TR7 with SBC350/700R4/Ford9". Only $9500! They drive it around in the parking lot in the link and it sounds decent but I was left empty when they did not smoke the tires or do donuts with it... LINK

And for the Jacques or Pierre in your life, a 1985 Renault 11 Turbo, probably a 5-speed. Only asking $6900! I have nothing to say about this one...

PS: they have an older video of a 69 AMX. VIDEO The ones they DO have in stock are going for $40,000ish. Makes me regret selling my 69 Javelin back in my youth. Had a SBC327w/Z/28 intake/TH350/posi/Hurst H/H shifter. License plate was "CHVPWR"

Don't worry about thread drift.
That Triumph looks hard to work on without even lifting the hood.
The 220D is like working on a car from the '50s. Everything easy to see and access. I find it hard enough to work on the 300 Mercedes. In fact I would have sold it, but my wife's family had one. She grew up with a Mercedes and she likes it.

Good ol' Crossfire under the hood as if a normal SBC wouldn't be hard enough to work on. Your Benz pic for comparison.

Wired in the Corvette dash--must have had a 'vette donor. Note the tie-rod/dry-rod and subframe spacers (for oil pan clearance? ). This car gets scarier the more you look at it--just because something "fits" doesn't mean you should.

I'm surprised that SBC engine can get enough cooling with the funky radiator it must have.
I'm glad I'll never work on that thing.
