A thousand other things I cant remember and lots of thousand of pounds I can!
Not used since last summer, but resurrected, a gallon or two of Kendall & filter, fuelled up and flew through the new MOT... Looks a bit ratty.....perfect!!!
Its been mine for quite a few years and the only reason its going is that i've been made redundant and need to sustain a few months job hunting etc. Had to sell our house and keeping the car at my pal's in Northamptonshire. Not happy about it but there you go.
Thousands of hours & pounds to build and won't be trading!!!!
Its a loud, fast V8 Hot Rod that aint that keen on bends and sets off all the car alarms in the street..
Please note that the car is currently in Northamptonshire....viewings can easily be arranged.
