I'm reminded of the Jensen Interceptor ;-)
Was in London a few years ago, went to an exhibit at the London Museum of Fine Arts, name of the
exhibit was "Sex and the Motor Car" - couldn't pass that up.
Very little sex - I guess that's how they got people in the door - but a fairly good selection of
cars including a Jensen Interceptor.
Anyway, the Jensen had a "spec sheet" on a stand, and it said "Chrysler V-6 engine". I read this and
said, nope, that's wrong, and went to find the curator.
Said curator sniffily told me it was definitely a V-6 and I was simply wrong ("bloody ignorant
I invited him to walk across the aisle with me and count the spark plugs, and to prove me wrong, he
agreed to. After all, what could *I* know, *HE* ran the museum.
The expression on his face when he had to count past six was priceless . . .
Horsepower is like money - some is good, more is better, and "too much" is just enough - maybe - and
I tend to doubt it.
(3.6 liters is *just* adequate . . . for a motorcycle ;-)
