Still Duke-ing it


Recommended Posts

Not much chatter here on the Jaguar replicas. I still have my Duke Classic Roadsters replica. I've had some reliability problems the past couple of years and haven't driven it much. The last outing took 4 hours to do a 30 mile loop because the car stalled eight times and I had to wait for it to cool off before it would start and go a bit farther. My mechanic isolated the problem to the fuel pump overheating. A new electric pump seems to have solved the problem. I just did a 50 mile drive today without a hiccup. And my vibration problems were the most obvious of all--tires out of balance. The car is running its best ever since we bought it almost 5 years ago. No plan to sell immediately, but will try next summer. It's still a blast to drive. Especially when it doesn't threaten to strand me.

I wish there were more resources for Classic Roadsters, like parts and suppliers. Thankfully the Chevette and Pinto/Mustang chassis are still reasonably well supported with parts and information.
