did you buy that car from or near Kidderminster ?

Looks familiar

I bought it in Bristol, and looking at the big history file that came with it, it's spent all it's life in the South West.

Top Stuff. Good luck at the PPC challenge. Shall keep an eye on the Mag for results and piccy's of the Scim's lap of honour. Make room on the mantlepiece!.

It's parallel on a SE6 with power steering. Hope this helps.

Cheers
Nath

Even better with decent rubber...keep selling those bits and you might be able to get some half dcent tyres on it in time with some budget juggling..?

Does the MoT test itself come into the PPC budget then??

Yep, MOT if it needs one has to be included as well.

There still chatting about my MOT the other day in the garage. Seems it met with approval all round and left an impression.

My mate who was somewhat sceptical about the whole thing took it for a spin yesterday. He came back saying it could become a popular swap and could beliveve how nice it is to drive.

I'm wondering how many test drives its going to get at Curbrough? :D

Cheers
Nath

"Nath's Test Day" - bookings now being taken... :wink:

As I suspected - something "slightly different" but well done does tend to get enthusiasts interested...look at the amount of posts in this thread!!!

Its nice to see something different from the usual Rover V8/Ford 2.9i/24V Cosworth swaps. I think the thing that helps is the way it just looks "right"..

Are you keeping the Omega dash, or will it be "engineered out" after the PPC Challenge?

EDIT: 9 more posts and it'll be the most popular thread on here..
