After far too many years I've finally started to update this site again. We have a new look and new content will be added on an almost daily basis. I propose detailed pages for every engine type since the '60s M10 and pages for all newer car models up to the present. Existing pages will all be updated. I promise, it'll have been worth the wait. Your ideas for content are very welcome.

Some of the pictures on this site were taken in the 1990s with a very early digital camera, sorry for the quality.
