    Question about the differentail. If it ain't broke don't fix it?

    My new old Jet Age 300

    Hey thanks , man. I appreciate that. I really don't know anything about these cars, except that I like the way they look, and what they represent. My dad usually had import cars. Vw's, Jaguar, Triumph,BMW... so that's what I grew up with. They're nice, but there's no "glory."
