Never understood why you got rid of your old SS1 and then started again - it still goes well Steve.

Apart from being a glutton for punishment, I decided I wanted the challenge of building myself a competition car from scratch. So bought this one which had been off the road for about 14 years, and set about doing a nut and bolt rebuild with a few go faster bits thrown in. So far so good :lol:
