That one was on ebay a couple years back with a story of how it belonged to Paul Newman or something like that.

It was up in seattle few years back but it was the wrong time for me. It was not running right and they wanted to get rid of it. But it could have not gone to a better person. It looks really nice, better than it did before. I would think now its a colectors item.

Kirban had a neat old 30's/40's coupe with a hot air motor in it...


I was toying with the idea of my hot air, or an LC2 motor into my old MG midget... but I sold the Midget... that would have been a fast car!!! lol


That GN Camino is AWESOME!!!!! I saw one at E-town about 4 years ago... it looked so amazing... I want one!!!

Your friend that now has the green Regal- did he ever do the conversion?
He had a lot of fun on the track with the NA motor as I recall.
