If you dont have a V8,

You must be some kind of god damned commie!

There, I've said it.😆
mrsbradey

Thankfully, I have a V8 ! :-)

Does yours go brum rumble rumble when you turn the key? Mine doesn't currently have a key.😞
mrsbradey

Mine not rumbling either just yet!

I am doing plenty of rumbling at present, and don't think cooling system on par as I'm currently overheating vigorously !!!!
mrsbradey

But I have 3 sets of keys! Seems a touch unfair Ducati!  Laughing

There are cars out there that are not V8's?  Shocked  Shocked  Shocked  Shocked

WTF is the world coming to....
orkneycadian

Then again, I have heard of folk claiming they have a V8 when it has less than a 350 in it!  Folk running around with a Rover V8 shoehorned into something thinking they were the dogs dangly bits! Laughing

I had a TR7 V8. Went like stabbed rat!

A Buick 215 made a half decent wiper motor. Had one once, but wasn't overly inspiring.  Guess it was lucky if it made 150 horses, and most of those went on the conversion of petrol into carbon monoxide.
ducati

On the upside, it's half the weight of a ford 289 and makes similar power. For a bit more fun add another 50 ponys with 4 barrel and decent manifold (ooh top tip simples).😁

As the saying goes, Theres no replacement for displacement.

If we are going to stay in the EU, they should make it compulsory for V8's to have at least 349 cu.  Anything lower should get demoted to a V6 on the grounds that the pots are simply not big enough.

I have debated this summer making sure I do not fall foul of any such rulings by upgrading to a 378

Alternatively, we could just vote for Trump - I am sure then that even 427's will be deemed a little on the light side.

Yep, thinking of stuffing a 351 in ma mustang.👌
ducati

Actually, more likely a modern overhead cam jobby.
orkneycadian

Och, away and shite.  Camshaft lives in the V where it belongs.

Next you'll be telling us you want sat nav, electric windows and DVD screens for the kids.... Rolling Eyes
ducati

Kids?? 😲
orkneycadian

Oh well, theres hope for you yet, even though you want to drop a sewing machine motor in your rust bucket!  Get youself on Ebay for a crate engine - Go for stupidly low prices over there, and you could probably import as " a sample or a gift"!  Laughing

Nothing less than a 350 now!
orkneycadian

Mustangs getting as common as muck here now.  Must be about 4 or 5 of them running around, with another new one sitting at the Ford place.  Rapidly becoming the runaround of choice for hairdressers.
ducati

Good, I intend to make a living selling them.😊
orkneycadian

Think you are a bit late on that one.  Every hairdresser over here seems to have one now, and the one at the Ford dealer is a convertible - Apparantly the official definition of a hairdressers car is one that is convertible and has an undersized engine for its looks.  Guess that one ticks both boxes then.....

Maybe there are still a few hairdresses that side of the Firth that still use the TT, the MGF or the Z3 that are looking to replace?
ducati

I'm not sure we have any hair dressers over here. Have you been to Wick? Anyway, they don't have to have a Mustang. Actually I am more a Mopar person.
orkneycadian

Sorry, I just assumed that was the typical Caithness female's take on fashion.  Or that they had fallen victim to the shearing crofter in the Specsavers advert.

Ever hopeful that once we have buggered off from the EU, and with Trumpy boy banning hybrid vehicles across the pond, that we can have a V8 trade deal with the US of A.

They build shedloads of them in Detroit and not Mexico, ship them over here and we run them.  When free of the shackles of Brussels, we can abolish VAT on fuel and drop the basic price to the same as Venezuelas.  Probably about 10p per tankful.

Bring it on!  Cool
