For some (too many) months I have wasting my time on a piece of Italian tin which is finally 99% finished - so I thought at least one or two might like to see a picture!

At least now I ought to be able to spend more time on Isis matters...

It's quicker than an Isis but not as economical - having a similar sized carbon footprint to a major steelworks.

I presume Ferrari got the styling idea from an Isis though...... Since you are obviously not fond of it, I will take it off your hands as a gesture of international goodwill. I presume it has as many carburettors as cylinders? Gi's a gander under the bonnet, will ye man! Plus a few other views.

An absolutely beautiful engine! And each one of those carbs is probably quite economical....... so it's only when they get together that itthey become thirsty, rather like a football crowd.

PS. If my wish is your command, don't think you'll get off so lightly for the next two wishes!!

You could make yourself really popular with the Ferrari set by getting a bumper sticker that says 'My other car is a Morris Isis' or something (IMG:http://www.wolseleyforum.com/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Only with clean hands though!

Its actually white silicone sleeving over red leads - hours of fun with rubber gloves on.

I have a video somewhere of it running - I'll find it - and it does indeed sound magnificent.

Thanks - and my better half says it's Eyesores.

She calls them other things too but not printable.

I need a break from Ferraris now - or rather my bank account does - you cannot believe how much some of the bits are!
