So, Jay, what are the plans start to end (compound charge, obviously), and what is the aim? Track monster for competing in, track days, road going sleeper?

Scarily, probably not! :lol:
We need to have some kind of celebratory get together once this, 132 and my Stellar are all finished. Probably close to Stroud to save on Doc's fuel bill...
pah! 132 should see 7.5MPG easy. Probably more than the Stellar will manage with your right foot!
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...

Following a long period of denial, clarity has finally convinced me that the valver needs to find a new home.

So, if anyone's in the market for a serious project, speak now or forever hold your peace as it's slowly dismantled.

The Athena is also going as a mild project and all the parts stockpile.

I'm probably interested in some or more of the stock pile, but I cant believe your throwing the towel in on the valver! You promised me another fast lap!

I'd like to think that anyone in the market for that kind of car would be aware of that. But, point taken.

I think the cars lovely, not too ott but stands out, as I read the advert it isn't clear about the plate so just a suggestion.

This has now sold and gone to its new home in Ireland.

Perhaps Shane it's new owner will be along at some point, though having read the car's forum history, he may already be among us.

I wish him a long and happy stewardship.

Au revoir mon Valver!
