G,day....I have been searching the different threads here but have not been able to find any Soarers
( perhaps they are too new to be nostalgic ). But they are rear wheel drive so that has to be in their favour.
Untill late 2011 I have to admit to having never heard of them. At the time I was looking for a project for my retirement. I was keeping an eye out for the usual MG-Austin Healey type thing but for someone on the pension the price of these were just in dreamland. Then by chance I spotted this coupe on eBay and done some quick research with Google where I found the Z20 Soarer Forum. Anyway long story short I found myself bidding on and winning the car
As was stated by advertiser the motor was seized but in its favour was that the body was rust free. Interior was a bit rough, car had been left under a tree with door open so dogs could use it as a kennel.
Any way here are a couple of shots of how it was when I got it home in January 2012.
Interior is after bags of leaves and dog hair was removed.
My original plan was to get the car set up and do a few sprint type events, but in the meantime although the mind is still willing the body has told me otherwise. I will get back with more details of the happenings over the last 12 months.
In the meantime-
Have a good one....John B.
