A comercial pilot career took me to Hawaii in 1977. I bought my 140 in 1995. After retiring in 2005, I have more time to keep it looking, and running,. A side benefit of ownership is all the friends I've met here and around the world.(email)
Updated December 10th, 2010. Not legal proof of ownership.

Orginal engine is missing. Car is currently fitted with a MK 2 3.8L engine with two HD8 carb's, performance cams, and an aluminum flywheel. I wouldn't install the cams if I was going to do it over again. I am rebuilding a G series engine (original XK-140 series) which will have a "C" head. I swapped the rear axel from a 150 which made it possible to fit the original spoked rims and lowered the ratio considerably. I kept the disc brakes from the 150 also, but didn't install the "plumbing" that normally went on the 150. The car is used as a daily driver and after a new electrical harness was fitted, it became 100% more reliable. It is the only FH 140 on the island except for one other with a Chevy engine that's been sitting in a garage or many years.
