    I sold it when the engine blew. :slap: ...If only I knew then what I know now.

    I could have just taken a good used 22RE from a pickup and swapped it in easy, probably wouldn't have taken a whole weekend. But I was 20, and although I tinkered with cars, I thought an engine swap was over my head.

    It was black, too. 5-speed, IRS, four discs. And so clean... :cry:

    The TVR V8 is a Buick engine that GM discontinued in 62 and sold the design to British Leyland. They have used it in all sorts of vehicles since then, almost totally unchanged. BMW owns the design now and have finally made some updates.
