CNC Heads offer off the shelf ported heads for VX V6, https://www.cncheads.co.uk/vauxhall/vauxhall-vectra-3-2/
Might save a lot of experimentation.

“ Introducing: the Hoonipigasus! This is the hill climb beast that I’ll be racing at this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. It’s a Porsche 911 SVSR, built by BBi Autosport in partnership with Mobil 1, and it’s a one-of-a-kind, mid-engine, twin-turbo, 1400hp, AWD, 1000kg, weapon. This meth-fueled monster is intended to be the world’s ultimate Porsche race car build with the sole purpose of trying to win the top class in the 100th running of the legendary PPIHC race. We’ve also teamed up with former pro snowboarder, musician, and internationally acclaimed street artist Trouble (Trevor) Andrew, a.k.a. Gucci Ghost, to launch this incredible new livery on this build. The livery, color, and name pays homage to the infamous 1971 Porsche 917/20 “Pink Pig”. Lots of work and planning went into this, and this project is just incredible!“

Do a google for photos.

Now that sounds like a serious contemnder!
..that is literally, "money no object" :P

I saw a white Mk1 Escort with ribbons on it outside the local church a couple of years ago, waiting for the happy couple, I bet she was thrilled!

Washed it.  Sun came out. Streak central.

Should have also dried it.  :P ::)

Sun dried  :D
A water filter is a revelation, until the media gets saturated, then you wish you'd just paid someone else to do it...but where's the satisfaction in that?

I am having a clear out, and if you can pick it up THIS WEEKEND you can have it.
3.2 Elite Auto box, from 105,000mile car, seemed to work ok before it was removed, dry stored since
Sunroof, was working before being removed.
Various random bits of beige trim, heater box etc  may have already been put in the wheelie bin, but you can poke about in there if you want to. Doors, switches, seats and dash have already gone.
I'll be around Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning by arrangement.
I won't keep anything for you, or post it, unit has to be cleared by Monday, and then it will be gone.
Thanks.

Won’t be long before someone says good Omegas will command high prices. Oops I just have!

When everyone is driving economical, ele tric cars that are speed governed, old luxurious gas guzzlers will be highly sought after. The only problem might be living long enough to see it happen. Our children will though.
sshh, don't tell anyone, I might be able to tuck another one away while they are still cheap...the good thing about today's future classics, is that you can actually enjoy a long road trip in them, as long as they are well looked after. I'm not sure how far I'd want to go in a 4 speed non-AC equipped plastic seated Mk1 Escort these days....

Washed & polished the RRS next job is to feed the leather would have done it today but run out of balm, ordered some off the bay.
What make do you use? I was told that anything with natural oils will work, and there are lot of claims by detailing companies about their products which make it a minefield.
