The bit at 1 minute 17 was special. A 6R4 Metro at full chat is something worth listening too.

They used to build them at the old Rover factory (now BMW) across the road from me and used to give them a test drive up the dual carrageways next to the factory in the early hours of the morning the amount of times id be going home and 1 would come past you on what appeared full chat with the noise coming from the exhaust was awsome :tup:

I was once asked how I got the Rover in my CF sounding so good.......... It was a Streight 6 ventora lump with a Transit diesel based exhaust system....... This was a well respected rodder and chassis builder who frequents this wonderful place.
Must admit it did sound good.

Doesn't sound particularly great, but for 'driven to within an inch of their life'......

sorry... i'll find another one....

I put up what I though was a Pinto Powered dragster, but the car was called Pinto and was a v8... sorry scouring YouTube hasn't yielded any great results.

I was specifically thinking of the Pinto powered Just4Fun rail run over here and the Cossie Probe (John Tebenham?)

Sorry for wasting a thread space.. :tdown:
