I did Sir D.
Although in all honesty I did not know the meaning until now. My bad, especially since our BSA Troop did a few overnighters on it. Even took a work related photo standing on the deck too

Yes, VERY COOL!!
Pics wonít post so Iíll edit later and add them

What's the leather piece on the fan shaft? Some kind of dampner?




How about those spark plug wires!

1977 Celica resto-mod (but still all-Toyota!)



6 cylinder 3 liter FI engine (from Lexus GS300 and the like) with A/C and power steering - in lieu of the stock 2.2 4 cylinder.





Unbelievable interior work - especially the leather-over-oem-plastic components!
And underneath that shifter is a late model 5 speed and Supra rear suspension

It's easy to be innovative when you are blowing other people's billions. That doesn't make it any less stupid.

That's s period accessory to keep the water pump grease from spraying the inside of the hood. You can see some on the left side hood panel in the photo.

Hey Dave - thanks for that. I never would have guessed! FWIW it looked original. I was kinda hard but still pliable.
