Could you shoehorn it into Daffodil? That would be an interesting project!

Then you need to update your Cars list. Still, it would have been an interesting project (and WOW would she have surprised boy racers in their hot hatchbacks!).

You could remove the sump and the heads, then turn the engine upside down, replace the flywheel with a crank handle and you have a ready made 6 pot potato masher!! :)

Knowing how you're such a keen greenie :-D You could supply your own electricity needs with a domestic wind turbine, and you could shove a propeller onto the engine and use it to create a suitable wind for those days when there's no wind blowing. Simple :)

Even simpler, you could just point the exhaust at the wind turbine and do away with the propellor :-D

That just has to be saved. Same year, colour, interior as ours was. If I were in UK, I'd be jumping at that, and fitting an XUD9 — or even an EV project. ES9 though, Mike??

There was someone asking a couple of days ago why Tesla don't fit a turbine and generator on the roof so they never run out of electricity.*

James frequently says that there are no stupid questions but I think that is an exception.

*not anyone here, fortunately.
