    I read part of the link to your SOL tour - quite a challenge depending on the vehicle. I've had my own experience with leakers - Triumph motorcycles in the 60's and 70's!

    Do you mean you dont mind the distortion the lens gives ?
    Or do you not notice it.

    Of the dozen pre-1970 cars we only had two issues (both SHOCKINGLY due to failed electrical components! One voltage regulator and one generator) so it seems to prove my adage that if you drive them often enough they work out all of their issues. I drove my car (a '65 E-type Jaguar) 3,150 miles in a week, and it ran flawlessly - in temps from below freezing to 104°F, and from sea-level to 11,000'. Mind you, it also burned a full change worth of oil, and 90% of the Lucas gear has been replaced by modern-ish Japanese & American stuff (Hitachi alternator, Nippondenso starter, Mallory distributor, and Facet fuel pump.)

    I kind of like the drama that the distortion of this lens adds to images. To each their own I guess.
