You would be surprised. People are like myself who bought a T type 25 years
ago when I  knew nothing about them. I bought a TD because I liked the way
it looked. I learned later on. Look how many people on this list who have
no idea who Cecil Kimber was!

I am not sure where I am coming from. These modifications , while not my
cup of tea, never bothered me, until this recent meeting. I then began to
consider the very long term affects . Before the mods were really minor,
but  Datsun steering boxes ,   5 speeds, tube shocks, disc brakes, stereos,
etc are really beginning to change every aspect of these cars. There is
something of a time warp when you drive a non modified car, that is being
lost and perhaps lost forever. My PA without sincros is more fun to drive
than a 5 speed. This has not been about car shows and trailer queens. Its
been about Maintaining the Breed for the future.

Thanks again for your thoughts
