    Right then, its been a busy couple of weeks... After speaking to my Stepdad (Pete of Lite Welding Ltd) it was decided it was time to build a car 'for me' rather than buying cars that were done / nearly done and then finishing/changing them to how i wanted them to be. The plan was set I would...

    I'm posting these on behalf of Keith as he's without a computer at the minute, he finally found them after having a post Christmas clear up. There's a few gaps as he isn't really one for taking photos. Keith's the one with the shiney hair cut, the other bloke's Terry Barrow. This is pretty much...

Car was destined for the scrap yard as the owner at the time did not think it was worth fixing, I took it for an MOT to...

    I'm not a big fan of the conventional, even when it's in the context of something unconventional. So I fancied the idea of building a slightly different engine. I watched ebay for a while and eventually a Ford 400M came up. No gearbox and it was seized, but I got it for next to nothing. It sat...
