Re: Hella Sweet Lemons Cars of the Week

One of these days, Eric, you're gonna break down and write one of these about Scrubby and/or the BlitzWagen (not to mention Ferdinand). I'm probably a little bit biased, but, like, so?

There will be many more lists. These are just a half-dozen I thought of for one post.

The linked posts in the bottom do have more British stuff, but we'd love to see an Austin Princess or a Morris Minor, of course.

Here in Washington I had a line on an ADO71 Princess, the "not an Austin except in New Zealand" iteration of the name, but it was not to be. I remain hopeful that it will resurface.

Anything on Mike Harrell's property should be on the 'We'd love to see in Lemons" list.

Re: Hella Sweet Lemons Cars of the Week

A few Austin Princesses have come up.  They are almost always on CL as Rolls Royce because that's what's stamped on the engine.  There's a couple of stumbling blocks to the Princess.  1. People think they are worth Rolls Royce money.  2.  I have this reluctance to race something weighing 4000lbs with prewar braking tech.  Speaking of glacially slow, a few Morris Minors have also popped up on the radar.  At some point though you have to stop collecting and start building.
