    Thatís it man - got it for free so how bad! Will get a friend of mine to hydrodip the interior plastics in carbon fiber and Iíll pull the roof liner and dye it black. The engine was home to a beautiful rats nest along with the remains of its owner, I think it might fire up ok so not sure what Iíll do with the block if it does. Iíll try get it running during the week and see from there

    Not my Scooby... but in daily commuter news, I at last got rid of the smelly, gutless sh*tbox that was my old transit connect.

    I picked this very tidy & original Irish Fiesta Sport van up there two weeks ago as a new company run-around with the obligatory set of Compomotive MO5 1784's.

    Needs a set of Kaylan mud-flaps now due to the wider 8" rims... but in general, I'm really happy with it & averaging 55mpg!! Whoop whoop!

    Talking

    Not sure how to upload video but the rat mobile roared into life this afternoon with just a battery and an improvised fuel pump, after about 30 secs of running, the fuel pump kicked into life too. Alternator is totally seized but apart from that itís running really smooth - tough as old boots that yoke - sat up for 6 years solid and literally first turn of the key !!!
