Wow!  That looks like some serious equipment.  More than I have need/ 
room for, though, and NJ would tack several hundred miles on to my trip.

Perhaps I exaggerated the weight of the engine a little bit.  I was  
cross-posting to the MG list, where most of the engines in question  
can be picked up by hand by one or two guys... I think the XK motor  
weighs something like 600 lbs.
