So this time last Friday I owned a Stage 3.8 coral blue turbo....I was all set to splurge more monies on it for the forthcoming balmy Summer.

Things kind of changed come a fanciful phonecall on the Saturday and before I knew it I had placed a tentative advert on here.

 

What followed was one crazy ol week....by Monday lunchtime I was speaking to Tom and by 10pm we had hammered out a price. Tuesday afternoon I picked him up from Chelmsford train station, a quick test drive, thorough walk round and Tom was on his way (after bombarding the poor bloke with everything I could think of!). So a sale in (technically) two days...not bad.

 

Over the next few days more negogiations went on for a car I always lusted after. And thanks to Chris for the swift purchase of my hardtop I picked the car up this Morning at 8am.

 

So, what do you get after owning something that shoves you down the road....

 

Naturally something more expensive....slower....may cost more to run and even more agricultural. Yes, logic truly went out the window :lol:

 

It was hardly a secret on here so here is the spacehopper....

I absolutely love it....oh and naturally I've already broken it!!

 

(must add in a huge thank you to Mama D for loaning me some monies too...as I couldn't quite do a straight swap financially!!)

Hard-on emoticon required, I would ask Wolfie to sort me out - but that could be taken the wrong way. Epic purchase.

Lovely car. Remember saying to Darron when 5oc car was for sale that i would rather have that than his far more expensive GT3, oh how he laughed. Hopefully it does you well but alas 5oc's car is one i couldn't part with mine + 10k for! Does that have a honda conversion? List of spec?
