Paul Geary stopped by this afternoon with his T25 truck. what can I say but 'wow, what a neat ride!'. It's running a built 'box (from Bears) with longer 1st and 2nd gears, big porsche brakes all round and, of course, the matching tuned 3.6litre 6-cylinder motor with a RUF chipped ECU.
Oh, did I forget to mention that it's due a nitrous kit anyday soon, too! I'd imagine it must be 250hp ish (over 300 when the gas goes on..), and it sounds just awesome.
On the road it's a real sleeper. mild mannered and easy to drive... until you drop the hammer, that is! What a beast - I really want it!
Apparently it's keeping the ratty outward appearance for real sleeper appeal. watch out for it at a drag strip near you in 2009 ;)
if you don't already have one of these in toolkit, get one! 20lb/ft of torque by hand is multiplied through the gearing enough to undo a rear hub nut. it makes working on brakes a doddle!
it was used twice yesterday - they also work great on flywheel gland nuts, too. i don't know what i'd do without mine

sadly the auction has closed, but just have a look through the catalogue - it's impressive!
it's hard to believe that so many rare vintage cabriolet's, coachbuilts and early porsche's could come up for sale at one time, clearly a collector's clearout!
