I also used to set my ignition timing by taking the car up the cliffside at Stoke Fleming and backing off bit by bit till she stopped pinking. Nowadays I have no idea when it is right!

My Mk 1 Ruby is a hot-rod, having a Mk 2 cylinder head which adds 2-3 bhp. It will do a genuine 56mph, and will cruise on motorways at the same speed as lorries (which saves you getting blown away when they overtake).
I suppose it will blow up soon.
