    I find I will do a pr when there is little to no wind.

    More wind, slower times. Any advantage a tailwind my provide does not overcome the penalty of a headwind.

    A TA crank has a 50.4 bcd and can take a 26-tooth chainring. Can be setup as a double or triple.

    A #3 Regina cog can be up to 31 teeth.

    I fail to see a gearing problem.

    A vintage bike is an investment if you are a vintage bike dealer. I don't understand wringing your hands if you are not a vitage bike dealer.

    But if for whatever reason it bothers you, the answer...

    Pretty much all of it. Doesn't hold a candle to small or big block American. Not to mention the fact that the previously mentioned "British" cars were entirely conceived by Americans.

    I'm with you on the 289. The 427 looks bloated to my eye.

    While British design is fine, British drivetrains are crap, hence using Ford. Reliable like dirt.

    Why do the British drink warm beer?

    Personally, I like the look of 4 Webers over the single Holley.

    Again, iirc, it has been 25 years, the 289s seemed to have the Webers and the 427s would have either. But either could be an...

    Iirc, the one in the picture is a mk2. But I did also work on a couple of mk4s. Those are mostly 'merkin.

    But I am not a fan of the monocoque chassis, in a GT40 or an E-Type. Rust repair is...

    This is me replacing the fuel pump on a GT40. Now that was wrenching.

    Funny you should mention that. As a matter of fact, I helped rebuild a 1950 XK120 alloy body. Difference between then and now wrenching on a bike is that I was paid to work on the Jag. Albeit...

    You sayin' my commemorative Austin Powers doll action figure is not going to be sought after in the next decade?

    Come on up. I've got a lovely vittoria magherita, cambio corsa and pista just waiting for your magic fingers. You can rub and feel them all day long.

    I for one will get on the haters gotta hate bandwagon.
