|Photo| This too is factory ride height

Davin’s post of the Lamborghini creeping out of a driveway resonated with me as my newest most recent addition to the fleet is at stock ride height but scrapes over everything. That’s the exhaust in the picture above. It’s about three and a quarter inches off the ground.

These exhaust clamps dangled another half inch or so lower, making this car able to drive over things only a little thicker than a crushed soda can without scraping.

Some quick hacksaw work increased the ride height to a streetable level. I can’t go anywhere near a speed bump though. Speed bumps, it appears, are a newer invention than is this car.

Stay tuned for a formal introduction. You’ll be seeing a lot more of this car.

    • It’s a good thing I have no intention of entering this car in any concours events. “Gasp! The exhaust clamps are too short! Look! The fan shroud is red and not the correct shade of yellow.”

      Pah! Make it reliable and drive the hell out of it is my philosophy.
