OT: some Alien content more British Alien stuff

Ok, everyone is posting there weekend stuff, so here's ours. First, for 914 content, still no heads for the Alien. So Sandy and I worked on her Healey. I completed the dis-assembly in preperation for the blaster, and she scraped about 40 lbs. of a thick dried dirt and oil off the chassis. (brit car rust proofing)

This car will also be an alien of sorts. It's getting a Suzuki Swift DOHC motor mated to a Samurai 5 speed box.

Look relatively solid Rich.

Have to admit I have a soft spot for LBC's (little british cars).

Also, my MGA was a wayyyy easier resto than the 914 has been.

Congrats

Will the heads off my old engine work? They just have the one exhaust stud issue.

My attorney really wants one of those bug-eyes. There's one (BRG, of course!) that's been sitting out back of a local shop for years. Maybe after the financial situation gets straightened out we'll see if we can pry it loose...

Then again, I need another project like I need... Another 914!

Yes, but I want to keep my euro spec motor intact if possible.

It looks intact, but that's just a drive-by impression. No clue what kind of shape it's really in.
