Spelt is actually also the past tense of the verb Spell. I had to look that up.

It was more entertaining when you simply had your one word reply of "Spelt?".

I'm pretty sure it's "spelled" unless we're using the Queen's. Which I'm ok with I suppose given the lineage of our cars and my great-grandfather.

[QUOTE=Chris Vitale;364074]Let's get this thread back on track.

Feline Scale

Based on a woman's age, this scale classifies women (who prey on younger men for their sexual appetite) as felines.

Whle I agree this is a much more entertaining segway than Neils bragging about wanting something that his daddy said he could do but will never get around to doing because he is too busy claiming to catch all sorts of diseases from poor young inexperienced girls who are too dumb and knieve to know any better than to fall for his richer than thou egocentric materialistic bullshit..shoot, where was I ...oh thats right... I believe the ORIGINAL topic was something about building a Puma in LA...????? ah crap... I like cougars...

My uncle had a Cougar once, 1969 Mercury. Only car I was ever in that I saw the speedo needle past the 140 mph mark as he raced a Vette going south on I-5 near Orange county. He went to Vietnam and the car got repo'd.

Cougar Eliminator? Nice car, especially with the 428CJ or Boss 302 option.

Um, talking about trucks again . . .

Neil, the most problematic part is that you are in California. Before I was a Defender guy I was a G-wagen guy. I had two gray market G-wagens. Mercedes stopped selling me parts when they began importing the G500, and so I moved over to the Defender and haven't looked back, but let me tell you, owning a gray market vehicle has its caveats.

First, it should be said that the rules have changed. There's no 25 year rule in California. Instead, it's vehicles first sold in 1975 or older that are not subject to smog regs. Which means any Defender will have to pass a smog test. There are certain situations where CARB will sign off on a gray market vehicle. There has to be another vehicle from that manufacturer that was legally imported that has the exact same motor and all the same smog equipment. And guess what. You have to provide all the documentation that cites what that vehicle is, and what all the smog accoutrements are, etc. etc.

You can buy an NAS D-90 and start swapping parts, but you will still have to pass a smog test, and the car will still have to have the same size/kind of motor and smog crap as it did when it was new or the inspector will fail you without even shoving the sniffer up your pipe. You may not substitute a diesel motor for gasoline. You may not put a smaller, more efficient, less polluting motor in. You can't change anything motor-wise if the car was built after '75. This is why old Broncos, Jeeps, and FJ's fetch such a high price.

You can swap a diesel in any 93,94,95 defender you want in California. You do the swap, go to the DMV and get an inspection and you are then smog exempt. I know multiple people who have done it.

Still not sure why we indulge Neil with these discussions. He isn't building or buying shit.

And if I do, how much will you give me? I'm a little busy these last few weeks but I'm still looking. For me, like I told you before, its about finding the right one.

Well what can I say, you must have a lot of free time on your hands. Realistically, I only have 2 more cars that I personally want in my collection. A PUMA 110 and a Lamborghini Aventador. After that I'll end my quest in finding the coolest cars. And if I can't find someone around here willing to sell me a nicely equipt PUMA, than I'll eventually biuld one. Either way I'll get one.

Well it seems you have plenty of free time to bullshit on here about skanks and trucks.

I think we should change the title back to "Biulding".

Any of you post on this thread one more time and you're "black-balled" for a month from the group !
