Thanks, Lance.  The history article is the most thorough and accurate 
piece that I have read.  Written as it was in 1976, just after the 
introduction of the SD1, it is still a wonderful resource for early V8 

Your car was well received by British V8 and I wonder why no more of our 
Rover folks have made submissions to the mag.  I was not aware that Dan 
had Jim Hall's Chaparral II engine (possibly a Traco?).  Hall shifted to 
Chevy engines with the IIC.  He was, of course, based right up the road 
in Midland, Texas.
