Never enough!! Been thinking about the next car recently- couple of years away but spotted a Mk2 Clio V6 the other day and it got me thinking... or a Z-cars mini... would need a bike transporter though, RS4 avant?

Trying to decide if I can justify sunday away from the books (exam on friday) to go watch a couple of old mates in the SMRC at Knockhill, or the banger WC at Cowdenbeath on saturday night...

Going to pick up the old boy's new toy next weekend- 2 berth camper on a Berlingo chassis, '10 plate factory direct, hot water, night heater, shower and TV, plus I get access to it any time- bit different from my old transit...

Z cars Minis are cool 8), be tight getting a bike in one though, probably just as tight as a Clio V6 though :lol:

Been thinking about the Escort motor durring the week, probably wont be the 2.8i now, maybe an XE or Zetec, or maybe even Jap or something bonkers like a Volvo five pot, it could probably be made to take anything, one of the previous owners was going to run a Honda S2000 motor.

Get that A40 sorted Dave 8)
