the best one IMHO, is a Sunbeam Tiger
I'll bet he surprised the heck out of the random BOSS302 off the line in that one! If I ever do another car that isn't an anonymous Dad car it will either be a Tiger or a 1962 Morgan +4 Super Sports.

Well I'm certainly not. BTW, has anyone noticed that this thread now has more than 4 times the posts of the second most replied to thread in the K-3 forum?

But what is the "likes to posts ratio"? Not that I would ever calculate such things myself, but if someone else did I might read about it.

Oddly, it's lagging in likes to post ratio by the same 4:1 that it leads in replies. Go figure......

Ya, but then how many "likes" can you hope to get, spitting out "one liners."

We just define the number of likes we have for the thread as above the baseline for this type of thread, and all the sudden, the thread is a winner.

I don't know. Henny Youngman made a career of it.
Of course, he did it while playing the violin.
Maybe that's why we're behind. No one is playing the violin. Yeah, that must be it. That's a relief; I was starting to think it might be lack of substance.

My mother-in-law can live with us as long as she wants to. Why not? It's her house.

If you don't know at least one Henny Youngman joke are you even alive?

I used to own a Sunbeam (Alpine) and they are nice little cars. A Tiger would be nice, but a Lotus Super Seven would be nicer!

Oh...and by the way, Colin Chapman would never buy a K-3 with Ricoh on the back.

One of the first cars I remember my dad having when I was a child was a Simca. c. 1960.

I suppose we could go on and on - but how do you deal with Lucas electrics in high-humidity Washington? (Or rather, analectrics)

Is that a medical/anatomical term?

Sure, but he'd need to change his UserID to 'MaryKay'
