I guess it's never to late to find a site more suitable to my building tastes. I've restored a Sunbeam Tiger, owned an FX4 Austin that I always thought of repowering, a TVR 280i Tasmine that was perfect as is. Currently I still have an 85 XJS Jaguar that I spent untold hours installing a stock TPI 350 Corvette with a 700R4 overdrive trans. This is a common swap (unlike when I stuffed a 302 sbf into a 142 Volvo) but I went for the harder job of building a harness and keeping the FI. As a bonus I ended up with the V12 alloy block that I turned into a coffee table that holds a full case of wine. As I mentioned I'm old and don't drive much anymore so the Jag may go up for sale. Some of my work can be seen in the link below.

Welcome to BritishV8, Wayne!

I really like the Triumph Daytona.
