How did we ever restore cars without the Internet? At Gunner’s Great Garage we are workling on a 1960 Daimler SP250, which is a fairly rare machine. You don’t find parts for it at the NAPA store or even in the J.C. Whitney Catalog. In fact, in the pre-internet era, parts may have been “unobtanium.” Today things are different. In just a little over and hour, we googled up some links, “chatted” with some Daimler enthusiasts in Australia. made contact with a British fan of the car and soon had a complete set of images showing a first-class restoration of a SP250. Any car collector who doesn’t use the Internet today is definitely “behind the curve.”
