Metro or Maestro?


K-series in a Maestro seems like a lot of work, when the T-series turbo ought to be a bolt in. And I've had a Montego turbo.


No, it's this:

Well, it isn't the ugliest car in your street. That's for certain.  ;D

Dropbox...... but I can't see them either so I used the 'quote' button to find where they were hosted.   ;D

When everybody is at home we've a fine supply of ugly: another Multipla, a Voyager, two 500s - one of them an L which competes with the Juke that another neighbour has just acquired, an Alfa and my mother's Focus. What we need is an aging Omega to add a touch of shabby gentility. No, there's one of those too ;D

Good lord Nick.. I can only assume someone paid you to take it away? ;D

I had one, once, as a company car.. mine was the 1.4D devoid of any kind of power. Still managed to spin it into a ditch at 17, though that might have been because the front subframe was, prior to that event, two halves of a subframe no longer attached to each other.. only the best BL quality parts.

(I too can't see the pictures without playing the quote-the-post-copy-the-link-remove-the-end-bit game)

Power isn't a problem, as it has the 1.8VVC engine. And all of the GTI suspension parts that are necessary for such conversions.

Front wheel drive was once unthinkable with anything more than 250bhp, but there are quite a few cars which seem to go in a straight line with it nowadays.
