Hi dude. I'll need to share the oppo+ circle with you. Once you accept that you can start posting (I'd start with an introduction). People will then add you back most likely and you'll start seeing their posts.

Any questions just ask :)

Look what turned up today!

It's so damn pretty. Full credit to a chap by the name of Peter Burgess. He's a head porting specialist for a whole host of Brit engines.

I didn't expect him to paint it as well :)

I want it so bad...

Triumph Toledo 2-door, 1.5l TC engine, been in dry storage so minimal rot. £995. For comparison, they sit somewhere between a 2002 and an OG Mini in size. Good little runabout until I can swap in a Sprint 2.0l 16v engine, the STA rear from a Triumph 2000 (same track width) and the quad rounds from a Dolomite.

+Kale Golden  Really not tricky. If the brakes work, the lights work, there's tread on the tyres and there's no rust near the suspension hardpoints it'll pass. Really basic stuff :)

It checks more things , but they're just flagged up to the owner provided they aren't immediately dangerous.

Wordlopnik: 'Endling'

Endling, from zoology, means 'the last living individual of a species'. Quite a forlorn term, when you think about it.

Fitting for Max's ride though.

I've just discovered how kickass Fiat 124 Coupes are. Every bit a competitor to the Alfa GTV.

Fit one with an Abarth 2.0l and you could keep up with 2000 GTVs, 2002Tiis and Dolomite Sprints :)

Sure their worth a bit. They should be!! But that doesn't mean a GTV or something else you love more won't land in your lap at an affordable price. That is the nice thing about "modern" cars , they made lots. Keep an eye out ,

Just as a point of comparison, this is the head before I sent it away.

Also some ports. For porting and things.

So this is why I can't afford that Toledo I posted earlier.

GAZ is a good word :)

From my little word series:

Sisu (Finnish), meaning 'strength of will, determination, perseverance, and acting rationally in the face of adversity. Defined by a long-term element; it is not momentary courage​'.

Perfectly exemplified by this man.

Couple of little updates. Block and crank are back from Sutton rebore, so I can start painting the block and get it looking pretty. The whole rotating assembly will be going off to a 'shop tomorrow to be balanced, along with the pistons to have their weights equalised.

The head work's also been finished and it's waiting for collection. Oh, and as the Rimmerbros sale was extended I've blown even more of my budget on Spit bits.

Some shiny GAZ shocks and springs to be precise :)

As an aside, this picture actually appeared in a brochure for the Spitfire back in '67. Utterly brilliant :)

​Dear God want.

Alfa 6 for £2000. Only two major issues. 1, it's LHD. 2, it's in France.

Simple, right?
