Previous Daily drive - 1996 Ford Fiesta Mk4. Fitted with a 1.7 Ford Puma engine. Lovely nippy little thing. Now for sale.
Just sold this little gem. 1987 Volvo 360 Saloon 2.0 GLT. Quite rare in saloon form. 60k miles and it drives like new.
2001 Ford Racing Puma Ltd Ed. No.471 of 500. Fantastic FWD car. handles great. Bought as a repair job as I didnt want to see it go for scrap and recently sold it to a friend I see regularly, but he's crashed it, twice! Eurgh!
But all that fades into the background right now. I have plans to import a KGC10 GTR 'Clone'. Still need to get afew things sorted but trying to get as much info as possible together prior to jumping in and getting some part of it very wrong. For a start I need to clear some space for it...
