    As best as I can see, the badge says Made in England. Also, the long lugs were Cabria by that point. One thing that's blowing my mind is that there appear to be gaskets under them lugs, which I've never seen on Cabrias. We need @Elvis to take a look.

    Gotta stand with Mr. Cranky on this one. As a guy with a "delicate" back," that floor gives me the willies. I have to be on the lookout for such.
