 There is another in France.  I saw it last May.  I don't know if it is the
same one I saw pictures of some eight years ago since the owner had only
bought it recently  and from an intermediary if it is indeed the same on.
Pretty clever and convenient.

And be accessible after the cable breaks.

I saw a TR3A years ago that had been modified so the entire hood, apron and
front fender area pivoted forward, ala Spitfire etc.  Seemed like a lot of
work, but sure would make changing the radiator a lot easier!

I think that was at TRfest in San Diego, around 2000 or 2001; but no idea of
the owner's name or how to contact him.
