I note the comment about St.Paul.  Thanks for setting me straight.

I'm into weird wagons.  After seeing the new Ford V8 powered MG sport sedan
I was in lust, since there was talk of a wagon version.  I havn't kept up on
the press, so don't know what is happening lately.

For a short time I was thinking of getting into a Ford Focus, as Moss is
selling a supercharger for the car.  Methinks a Supercharged Ford Focus
wagon would be an interesting daily commuter.  Then Ford SVO came out with a
kit to install a 5 liter V8 into the Focus, converting the car to rear wheel
drive.  Hmmmmm.   5 liter V8 Ford Focus Wagon.  Paint it electric blue and
stick some MG badges on it, add a bit of stainless mesh on the nose.

Hey, I can dream can't I?

I guess I'll get back to working on my Rover SD1.  I can just think of it as
an MGB GT V8 5 door.   : )          (see I do use them once in a while).

currently driving a 1987 Toyota Camry wagon.  DOHC and a wheezy exhaust
