So this year i decided i was going to go bigger, after bids on ebay on ebay on Rover V8's and a jag v12, i sat down in the pub with a friend of mine and we decided if i was going to do it, do it right so chevy small block was on the cards, so here it is straight from drag tractor pull thingy, my Chevy 327 small block.

Next up wheels, i chased a couple of sets on ebay and through friends but nothing panned out, i seen a pair of 15x12 centrelines on ebay and set out from the begining of the auction to win them, i got out bid in the last seconds after winning the auction for 6 days, gutted to say the least, 2 weeks later what pops into my ebay but, an item you were watching has been relisted, so a couple of emails and phone calls and a 8 hr round trip and ive got my wheels, i love them:smoke:

Standard jag axle mate I toyed with the idea of shortening it, but after speaking to a guy I know who has ran both he said standard length was the way to go, it comes in at 198cm with them rims on , 20mm under max width for a trike and is 3m long
