How about a Porshaa!  8)

Much as the idea of owning a 3 litre 4 pot tickles me, I'd be more interested if the bottom half of it hadn't departed this world. :-\

Then again, as a potential engine donor for the Westfield... ???

Cunning that, 2 extra holes to store your spare spark plugs in. 8)

I wish I could find a classic car with no bodywork. Hmm. Maybe a Reliant Scimitar?

I didn't know there was a 3ltr 6 cylinder MG, but I bet they go like a scalded cat and are a hoot to drive!  8)  :y

Probably not so great at stopping or going round corners.....  :-\  ;D

Well, they're a bit quicker than the 1800 but a lot heavier at the front. The Leyland 3.0l six is one of the lumps that makes the Essex V6 seem like a good engine.


It's just like the V6 Capris: more of a relaxed GT.

I saw a classic car on the M25 this morning that had no bodywork. A Triumph (on a trailer) where most of the body had already dissolved away.. that's what you meant, right? ;D

I think I'll stick to kit cars*.


*- remembers he's got a bodywork panel to replace on the Westfield. Been sitting on it for about 6 months now. ::)

Plastic Welsh hatchbacks are awesome.
I would like to know what will happen this year, but I don't have 20 20 vision.
