1971BB427 Little British cars with American V8's are cool! I like what you've done with the Thames, and it looks like it's gonna be a great ride!
I built an old '46 Austin sedan myself, and powered it with a 327 Chevy. Done in the 60's gasser style on mine.

Here's a shot of mine, and my buddy's '52 Austin PU truck.
