Always sad to see them go, but needs must sometimes. I'm sure it'll all be forgotten when you pick up the Yugo...sorry, have I given it away????

Aw, shame Nick. You missed out on a pro-street Zodiac. Rebuilt (never been run) 302, new Comp Cams camshaft, Canfield ally heads, Weiand intake, Holley etc. Brand new TCI C4 and hi-stall torque converter. 9" Ford, Gaz Sierra 4x4 struts, Cosworth hubs and calipers, Sierra 4x4 steering rack/column. And all for about a quarter of what you've paid for a shonky old Cortina with a tired 302 :incheek::incheek::incheek:

No, it's not running yet Nick. It needs brake lines plumbing in, rewiring and prop before it can. Then it needs paint and trim :D

Although it sounds very good Mike, I'm after something up & running that i can just tinker with over winter. The car i'm buying is ideal.
