Vorsprung Durch Tecnic

Apparently, Audi TT TDi 1900cc driven by Brian Jukes (according to the programme). Apparently it was all too much for him as no results were posted for this car or driver.

What happens to all the XXXX's ?

Tim, not to seem facetious in any way, have you tried shelf-filling at Tesco or working in a fast food place?

2 Unknown? Coupe's discovered

I believe there is a bloke in Australia building coupe new coupe chassis (we've all seen and admired the "mermar74" thread). If they were available, would that facilitate an acceptable rebuild? (Just out of curiosity)

B178RWK SS1 #54

Jim, you and Phil recently offered me suggestions for converting this car to an hydraulic clutch (to overcome my unique problems), is this another job to be added to the list of jobs to be done on #54? I am sure some of the other ageing owners would be interested. If that is the case, will you be us...

FOR SALE: 1985 SS1 1600 GALVANISED CHASSIS!

oops! I forgot to mention the splendid work done by the previous owner who did such a good job of regenerating the car to its' present standard. It is nowhere near concours condition but is a good basic small sports car capable of giving lots of fun.

I should also have added that the car is currently on the road, taxed for another month and insured and TESTED until March...
