    Howdy From Colorado, 1960 Hillman Husky, Lotus Twink powered .

    We've owned the car for about five years now. We went from the original 1392cc to a Hillman Minx 1725 with Alpine tranny to the Lotus twincam (drysumped) & Ford close ratio 4-speed out of my 1965 U2 Mallock.

    We've had the seats retrimmed in blood-clot red, and layed down a few boxes worth of sound deadening stuff. Just finished rewiring the car (went from one fuse to 12), added a bunch of gauges for engine monitoring & have done some suspension & brake upgrades as well.

    Looking forward to hanging out here & helping out anyone that needs a hand from across the pond.

    Seen a few when I've been in the states, always pro street. This looks a nice neat package.
