    Used torsion bars??

    Do TB eventually deform, and/or lose designed torque resistance, like leaf springs? If so, would the front end sag? Can the bar be twisted, to restore height and response? FWIW, I bought new ones, reasonable price for my 63 Vert, 1.05, I think and am pleased with the ride!

    E Mopars.

    on a lark, I rented a Mustang Mach E 2 d ago for a short trip to the ocean from Portland. NEVER AGAIN. It took me all afternoon, downloading an app, talking to 2 separate charging companies' reps to turn on the inop, or unresponsive charging station. Then...for 30-40 min, TEN miles more range...

    Chrysler Turbine car on display in Washington DC!

    FWIW, I saw the BRM turbine with Rover engine run at Brands Hatch in 67 or 68. It was quietly leading until the engine stuck on and it went into a safety bank. I had a rover P6, sold as the 3500S here, that was designed to accommodate that turbine engine; hence the coil springs are horizontal...
