Apparently this Rolls Royce has now become the most expensive car in the world being offered for sale with a price tag of around $14 Million.
If you are a history buff as I am you'll want to download the well illustrated 11 page COMPLETE HISTORY
of this amazing car.

Given the money, I wonder how many of us Jag enthusiasts would go for such a car. Watching the video was interesting and the engine sounds fantastic but if ever I was to win a mega multi-million dollar sweepstakes........ definitely not my cup of… Continue

The picture below is owned and hosted by http://www.khulsey.com/
. The owner of the site is a professional illustrator. And what an illustrator he is, just FANTASTIC!
There is a fabulous section on cars. Take some time to check it out. It is one of the best websites I've come across. Included on the site is also a very good free tutorial on using Adobe Photoshop.

The winter months in Canada can be brutal. To make things more interesting I've decided to undertake an educational DIY project. Rebuilding a pair of Stromberg Carbs from an E-Type Series 2. I've never tackled such a project before so I figured its never too late to learn something new. OR of course screw up something new.
I'll be taking lots of pictures as the work progresses. So stay tuned.
If anybody knows the best place and price to pick up repair kits for these… Continue

The FHC I am working on had a cheap radio installed where the center drawer goes. In the process of restoration, I purchased a new interior wood set from Saul at British Autowood. (The set is gorgeous!).
Can anyone help me, or point me to where I can find the drawer slides and related bracketry for this drawer.

Can one of you tell me which brake drums went with which model. I have a wire-wheel, 54 FHC. I noticed that two of my drums are dished and two are flat-faced. Which is right?
Does anyone have the correct drums I need? Thanks,

Yesterday did my weekly visit to my XK120 OTS project
. Waiting for an estimate on the cockpit coverings. The previous week I had left a sample of the seat color to get a match on the interior.
They are doing a lot of sanding, filling, priming, sanding... someday it will actually get some paint on it. These guys are perfectionists. I am afraid that when they get done, I won't want to drive it, but put it on… Continue
