It was pillar box red with bucket seats and guages from a washing machine ? The rust in the doors had been covered in sheets of fablon :roll:
Lasted 2 months and expired in a big bang and lots of oil and steam :lol: :lol:

opposite my offices there is a recycling centre in Taunton. From time to time I see some very valuable classic and vintage cars sitting in a pile waiting to be crushed.
Last month there was a split screen Morris Minor.
Yesterday there was a beautiful Wolsley/Riley from the 1950's I think it was a 4/44 ? anyway do you think I could find a classic car forum on the net ? no chance . I was hoping I could find someone interested to rush down there and take it away and rescue such an important part of our automotive heritage.

My first car I bought, still have it although it is rather past it, will do something with it one day, probably involving a tin of white paint (I keep telling myself :lol: )

It is probably one of the worst built cars ever Everything rattled loose or fell apart. Roofline is level with my hips though :lol:

Daily driver Civic. Converted to a 1.5 manual on twin carbs.

My toy, a 2.0 Vtec Crx, decent torque and a couple of hundred horsepower and it weighs next to nothing.
Needs a little tidying though, but it's not covered in rust like most of them.

This is a great thread 8) , love the old Esprit, potential money pit though :shock:

This was a dream car i had about four years ago

It's a 68 powered by a mild four barrel small block so fuel consumption wasn't too bad but sold it because it was just so friggin big :roll: , took up the same space as a long wheel base Transit :shock:
