February 23rd: No, this isn't my car. I just thought I'd show you what mine could have looked like if the stock market had not have tanked. (Actually, I'm going to paint mine its original Brambilla Blue.) This is an SV for sale in Bobileff's shop. Gary has four or five Miuras in his shop at the moment.
|Mine still looks like this. The good news is that I've managed to fund some more restoration work, and the frame is going to be completely finished soon!|
|Not much new here. It hasn't changed in a long time, but it's ready for the final S touchs. There will be some minor modifications to change over to the S-style front latches.|
|One more picture of the front. I have to thank my wife for giving me a digital camera for Christmas (and for many things, including her support of this project). These, and all future shots, will be taken with my 4MP Minolta DiMAGE F100. I love it.|
|Here is where most of the work remains. This will be completely finished and brought up to full SV specs, including the rear suspension. I've decided to convert over to the lower A arms (based on Espada parts) and replace the P400/S trailing link setup. There has been much debate about this modification, but I believe it will improve the handling, give me 2" more rear track, and still (I hope) fit under the P400/S rear body fenders. I'm not going to convert to wider fenders and 9" wheels. Too expensive for me, and I like the cleaner look of the S anyway. (Besides, just try to find SV taillight assemblies anywhere!)|
