Hi Baggo.

I entirely understand your point of view on the matter, and to some extent I agree with you.

BUT, given the choice, I think that a modern replica would be my choice, and an affordable one at that.

The last breed of AC Ace and Aceca with the Ford 5 litre (302 cu in) engine would seem to be worthy of being modern classics ?

PS I think of you every time (most days) an Ebay scammer lists a Nimbus motorcycle.

Hi Baggy,
As usual it's everyone to their own, but if pushed, I would have to go for a Facel Vega HK500 either manual or automatic, followed by a Sunbeam Tiger. regarding there latter, a good friend Brian had one which he "slightly" modified with a Holley 4 choke downdraft carb, a Hewland 5 sp straight cut box and a Salisbury limited slip diff.
Top speed about 100mph but hell it got there very, very fast.
That's enough about me on cars for now.

John

I was going to expand on the classic car theme, but would the "car" bit of this thread be better transferred to the "coffee bar" section ?
