Re: engine sp

Howdy, SP's use a rear axle ratio of 2.88 (which I have been told are worth big $$'s to those who are building Cobras to exact replicas), while the remaining Mk III's use 3.07 ratios in the rear end.

Re: Sandwell

My father is a baker and has three ovens at his shop, with only two in use. The third sits immediately below the second, and while it doesn't work, it will reach around 80 degrees C when the top oven is on.
