Not to pic nits and from not much info in that pic. The MKII should have solid spokes on the steering wheel not the incredibly flexible wire spokes in the pic. The cockpit cowling says J2  the suspension link and from what I gather of the nose proportions say J2. Need a look at the front grille work. But as it stands I'm sticking with my original call on that and be damned with it.:rolleyes:

It is indeed an Allard J2X (original), the nose sticks out further than the tires and there's the wider gap between the spares and the door. Send me an address and I'll ship your prize. smily_headphones1.gif

Hutnicks, be sure to update us when you get it! I missed both the original competition and the sudden-death round (I guess my hours are different from you all), but I'd be interested to see what Magick's sending.

lol - I had to take a shot at the J2X Mk II - you have to go big or go home...

BTW, here's another J2X (more accurately a J-2X):



294,000 pounds of thrust! That's still much less than the SSME's over 500,000 lbs, or the mighty F1's over 1.5 Million lbs. The J-2X hasn't actually been built yet, and just as with every other interesting project related to space travel, it has been announced that it will be cancelled.

Speaking of Allard, the modern J2X-C is always stunning when you see one at an event or hear it on the track.

I don't think anyone was as happy to get home as Pablo, he travels well but I could tell that he was getting tired of pooping on a strange floor. In hotel rooms, he actually makes a conscious effort to do his business around the puppy pads, instead of on them. I wonder if we'll get charged for carpet cleaning, again.

You could always dispute your bill by telling them you are shocked that a high class place would let a rat into their hotel.

"Sir, there is a rat in our room. You would think that in a high class place like this, you could keep the rats out of our room."

Oh, and while were on the automotive thread here. Take a packet of their hot sauce and put it on a penny leave it overnight. It will wind up looking like it just came from the mint. Magnificent metal polish, if a touch odorous.:D

I wonder if Magick's detailers at the shop know about this? :D

post #5655 of 7351
Magicks detailers will be spending a lot of time on the loo if they started knowing it.
