Right finally got somthing nice....

She's a 1.3 DX auto (bit different, wierd to drive an auto), its done 92K and came with a full dealer service history WOW...was part exed with some granny for a new fiesta...what a bargain...

Here she is.....









OK i will get her cleaned up over the weekend and get some more shots, but so far she is totally standard (not for long)...

I will post up a bit of a shopping list later but Ned thinks we should do a dual carb swap asap....No B16's in this...maybe a head swap at some stage...

But for now keep it simple, slam, wheels and zaust.....and maybe some tunes (its still has the original tape player how retro)

Comments please lads???

Thankx

Very nice, i love to see a car of this age un molestored and in good condition, looks like a good buy!!!

If i were you i'd go over it with a fine tooth comb and sort any inperfections out now before you start changing stuff.

would look sick with this front (not sure the specs etc)
