love the alloys on it. what else you thinking of doing? looks nice as it though
Nothing else to be honest (yet), its got wheels, lowering springs, splitter and rear difuser, full turbo back exhaust and some other bits. Just moved out my parents house so funds are a bit tight now haha!

Tempted to get a zunsport lower grill and get a stick on plate, and I would like to take it in for a remap but ideally you'd need a block mod done and an RS clutch so thats £1000-£1500 before you've even started paying for the actual remap and supporting mods!

Paul that is an absolute beauty!!!! Clearly I haven't been to a meet in too long; work kept me away tonight sorry. So how long have you had it? Will you be bringing it to MBC on the 26th?

Hi Rich,

Slight adaptation of the truth as my old man purchased it a couple on months back,so it isn't mine but I am insured on it and love it so much that if he sells it I will buy it so I guess it is mine to be smile

Its got a cracking list of mods but one thing that may surprise most is the spec from the factory. 2L Twin Cam engine, Limited Slip Diff, 5 Speed gearbox, Twin Line servo brakes, Disc brakes all around. Not much to get excited about by todays standards but in 1973 this was high tech and all from a company renowned for being sh*t!

Should be at MBC and it was at the last meet, see photo below:

Bloody hell nimrod r1 in the background. I spent 5 years on 51 sqn keeping that old bird in the air. Well technically I worked ms, not air vehicle but it was the best posting I have had.

My previous ride, ended up with the dreaded bore score on 5 and 6 cylinders and needed a rebuild so I traded it in.



for this. A bit different but a lovely car. Still mush the Porsche but until I can get into 981, then I'm holding off.



The wife just traded this in for a 125d, bought her to tears but moving from being an OIM in the North Sea to trainee power station operator involved a lot of miles compared to only being home 6 months of the year an forced a change.



Although when qualified to run power stations she has eyes on a SVM Nissan GT-R, I'm trying to talk her into a Cayman gt4 or lotus exige s. Hopefully I win :-).

Just bought this - taking over duties from the aging Forester.
Quite punchy for a 1.4 turbo, and impressive amount of standard kit.

Had this for nearly 2 years. Her name is Lilith and she comes out of hibernation this weekend for the breakfast meet at the Sharnbrook Hotel. Then off to Auto Torque for a service and MOT next week.
