Seaboy, if you're not a troll, you're not a troll. "Troll" is not a nasty thing we call those we don't like--it's what we call fake posts that are really just bait to watch members go crazy. Picture going to a board for Austin Healy enthusiasts and posting that you are going to buy a friend's classic 3000, replace the body with fiberglas panels, bolt fins to the back, install an automatic transmission, and then drive it in the Paris-Dakar rally. You'd get quite a response, right? The Austin Healy heads would be suggesting that you were either crazy, misguided, or pulling their leg.

Some are just trying to figure what we've got here, because your plans look a little bit like the Austin Healy thing. No offense intended.
