Andy,

Reference your statement - The Commer is immortal, didn't you know? - of course it is - as an example of British automotive engineering at its finest peak, it will live forever more - I was simply suggesting that maybe it now deserved the same sort of veneration and treatment that is accorded to the historic race cars - pampered and polished - or will you continue with the great tradition of only fixing it only when it breaks and using its performance to the maximum at every opportunity?  Wink

The Commer is venerated wherever it goes. Except by me. It is currently languishing for the winter in the corner of a field under a tree. I might top up it's anti freeze mix if it is lucky.

It has no performance as such (40bhp) and weighs well over two tons laden for Le Mans. It is made of really think steel, you should try drilling through it! Last year going up a mild hill, it was so slow, I was able to put it in first gear, light a fag, smoke it, fiddle around changing the cassette tape in the wireless, before changing into second gear.

It never breaks down so there is absolutely no need for any maintenance. Ever.

I think turbocharging the poor little asthmatic Commer engine may be a bit terminal  Wink

I remember seeing a Fiat 127 with a similar modification that chucked it's con rods through the sump not long after  Cry

However, a jet engine - there's an EXCELLANT idea.

I'm really struggling to see the Commer ever looking like one of those.  Certainly give the Gendarmerie something to think about Grin
