Volvo 240 makes a cheap donor. Front uprights don't really work well, but it makes a decent donor otherwise. The B230f with a K or H cam can make about 150HP with a very flat torque curve. The Dana 30 rear end is perfect for a Book frame. I made a shortened, widened oil pan and shortened the oil pickup. Took about 1.25 off the depth of the motor. You can always find a Turbo version if you want lots of power.

Hmmm...not sure about that one! Really, I suspect the best way to deal with daughter-in-law butt size is to pretend you don't even see it...ever!

Mother-in-law butts, however can be estimated (don't never, EVER, measure it!) in terms of fathoms, leagues, chains, rods, or (for REALLY wide ones - the kind where they're showing off if they're sitting on a single bar stool) parsecs. Any units of measure larger than that might leave one open to accusations of exaggeration...

Of course, there is volume to be considered too, with the possibility of adjacent gravitational changes. One shouldn't mention the inexplicable veering of small cars in the direction of it, or the fact that light seems to bend in its vicinity. Commenting on the frequency of families taking up shade beneath said mass for picnics on sunny days is right out.

:D :cheers:

A far safer alternative is to simple look at the lady while she sits on a chair, or ideally, a bench. And then, by the dark of the moon, making sure the lady's sleeping pill has fully engaged, go measure the seat she was sitting in while observed. Yes, she's my ex now...

LOL!! I've got one of those, too! She was (and remains) known as "The Dragon" to all who knew her...for good reason! That's why I'm still working, at 65 - my ex, on the other hand, is a millionaire...and enjoying my pension (and hers), my house, my cars, etc. :BH:
