If coveting thy neighbor's garage is a sin, then send me to hell.

What's powering that white one?

Perhaps a trip up across the border... Hows next weekend sound? Actually bring the Cobra up too! lol (I have beer on tap, if thats what it takes)

I'd love to know how those bike engine minis feel!

I have a vtec project on the go, but I've always had an interest in the bike engine conversions.

Unfortunately it would be impossible to drive the Cobra up to Canada in summer, it gets very hot inside, even though we've put three layers of insulation under the carpets, but I really appreciate the offer, very nice of you. if you want to read Steve 's (Birdman) construction thread for the Minibusa it's in the Z Cars section of this forum.
Personally that car frightens the living daylights out of me..

Mabird... I'll check out the build thread sometime. I would love to know how the high RPM & sequentially shifting feels/sounds to drive. It's one of those conversions that I strive to drive one day.
It's too bad that you're Cobra is so hot to drive in the summer time, what a great car for summer cruises. Is that a common issue, that they get very hot to drive?

Yes it's common, we went on a cruise last summer and my feet looked like they had been sunburned red from the heat on the passenger side. It had got so hot that it had melted the foam on the backside of the carpet to the floor.

But it's still a fantastic car even though its an ERA replica

x2!! That's quite a garage! 3 Minis, a Cobra and a 4 post lift. That's the stuff dreams are made of. I will certainly check out your build thread on the Busa powered Monster. I always wondered how many people there were in the US with multiple minis. It looks like one of them is a late model Sportspack. I have been tempted with the idea of building a Factory Five replica cobra as a fun summer car but I have always wanted to do a VTEC mini and I'd love to go for a ride in a Z cars mini. I tip my hat to you!
