Looks like a project then, a bit of T cut, some bog and an aerosol :)

Temtpting, I'll watch it and see how much the puggers want to give for it, which seems rather likely since it's advertised as "begging to be a 205 converstion"....

Still, it was a really tidy car.
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Oh dude, dont get me wrong mate, it's your car to do with what you want, and absolutley, it's right in this case that only a total nutter would rebuild that car, to 99.9% of people that car is spares only.

I was mearly mooting the point that puggers tend to pay larg money for engines / ecu's, which is more than I would have for a car that would need a load more spending on it to make it right like.

If you get 600 notes or so from the pug boys then fair play to you, better the monies in your pocket than sat in the drive.

Having only sold this car a little while ago, I can confirm the engine in it is a minter. It runs really well and pulls very strongly.

If only mine ran as sweetly. :(

Because it's f**ked mate. :wink:

I'd buy it for the engine to put in mine, as although mine was only rebuilt a while ago, this runs better. But Chris knows how much the loom, box and lump are worth....hence his price tag.

Can't balme Matt for that, money talks and all that. At least the dude who took the engine out is offering the rest for parts, a lot of others would have just binned the remains.
