When I sell my convert in the spring I will still have a pre-prod

coupe.B  I want to build an autocross car from the coupe, but feel

similarly about chopping up the pre-prod coupe.B  I may sell or trade the

coupe for a rust free 7 coupe car / shell.B  I have enough spares to

build whatever I want out of it.

Charles,



I was not speaking just of the US in my reference to bourb stewardship, I

implied the human race in totality.



Volcanic carbon release is calculated to be 1% annually of what human generate

from burning fossil fuels alone, not other sources.



Forest fires are mostly carbon neutral.  The trees absorbed carbon while

growing and release it if burnt and also when they decay.  Consider that if we

burnt wood for fuel and sustained the forests in a balanced cycle the net

carbon effect would be very low.  Coal, oil and natural gas canbt do that.



We humans manifest the release of carbon into the environment but do

practically nothing to recapture it.  And, we make things worse by destroying

the natural systems that do capture carbon b mass deforestation for example,

or more dire is the destruction of carbon absorbing ocean life.



Itbs generally accepted by an overwhelming majority of climate scientists

that humans are responsible for nearly all the global warming thatbs

occurred in the last 50 years.



Every major developing nation has gone, or is going through a progression of

fuel sources that almost always starts with wood, moves through coal,

petrochemicals (including natural gas) towards (hopefully) clean renewable

energy.  The more technologically advanced nations should do more, and should

share that knowledge and technology with 2nd and 3rd world nations to help

them bypass the dirty energy sources.



Politicians at the behest of national and multinational corporations run the

machine worldwide.  Thatbs a cold hard fact.  The general populace follows

the salt lick wherever itbs placed by the elite.   Rarely are we common folk

willing to effect a change, unless webre pushed to the limit.  Those truly

in control play that point with consummate precision.



Sorry to get so far off-topic, but it actually relates.  The only way to solve

a problem is to understand it.  Or be damned lucky guessing.



Any effort that results in a cleaner method to move a Triumph down the road

likely can be shared with, or was gleaned from, similar efforts with other

brands/models of any age.  Itbs something that needs to happen, sooner than

later.



Cheers,



Karl Knowles

That's the 2nd one thats sold for 20k+ recently, gives me ammunition to up

the insurance on mine with Haggerty.  They are definitely worth more in

Europe at the moment.

Plus if you buy a nice 10k car your'e probably still going to drop another

5 into it getting it the way you want it.



Rob

too many wedges

I'd still have the hangup about modding a pre-prod coupe - but that's just

my opinion.

Yeah, and imagine any of us at 100+ years old doing the work.
