Thanks, will pick up a copy when it comes out.

I've owned and also raced Twin Cams and they never deserved the negative reputation they got. The story behind it is interesting, though.

Had internal politics not came into play at BMC, I think the Austin Healey 100 would have had a twin came in 1955 or 56.  It would have extended the 100's life a few years and maybe they would have improved the chassis and steering with that additional time. http://www.acmefluid.com.au/larry/hhstory.html

In reply to dougie :

Cool history, dougie. Thanks for sharing. Internal politics and BMC seems like a common thread, though.
