Wow... nice work! That said "lucky" may not be the right term... more like most unusual! I don't think I could avoid driving any special car given the choice. Most lucky is going to have to go to someone who destroyed the Ferrari they owned and no one was injured. Followed by the Lottery winner who is now an owner... or since "ever lived" is included in the description... someone who inherited a "lost" one of a kind F car.Ive got to be the luckiest Ferrari owner who ever lived.
I've owned 3 over the years and none of them was drivable so I never had one break down on me!
Brought them damaged, repaired them (or just tidied them up) and sold them for a profit.
I would be the only Ferrari owner I know (and I've known several hundred) who have made money on them.
Yea Justen, sometimes being an engineer does limit the options that I consider......although I've definitely considered setting the dam thing on fire many times! But it's really getting there now; I gotta admit I've been hung up on this belt drive system in general, and these idlers in particular, for waayyy too long.looking tough mate....just get it running blo0dy engineers
Hahaha Andy by that time, I'll be too old and decrepit to drive the car, but I'll show it to my great-grandkids and tell them it's what we used to have fun doing before there was texting, video games, and FaceBook, and when there was still something called gasoline. As if they'll be interested - in 20 years they'll just look up from their i-whatevers, give me that lost deer in the headlights look and say "but why would you want to break the law and go fast? Big Brother would punish you......"At least you will be able to enter the vintage category of the car shows when she's all done. Do we run a book again on estimated FWHP?
Love Ya work John, keep us posted.
Steve, by the time this thing is finished, they'll probably just look at it and wonder what it is, and where the power outlet is located to plug it in But thanks for the compliment mateI'd love to see this nice engine at a Sema show. It'll get a lot of head turners with "wow". Can't wait to see it in the car.
Brandon, since you're the guy with the machine shop, that sounds like an offer Wanna build it?pulley should be easy enough!
