Its increasingly looking likely we might have to sell our ti.
I've got an 18 month boy and another on the way and just don't have the time to make the space and money taken up worth the effort right at the moment. A garage costs £500 a year to rent and insurance, tax, track day entries etc. etc. all add up to some very expensive days out.
The really galling thing is that since the engine and gearbox were rebuilt last year and the rolling road session at Mech Motorsports its running better than ever.
If it comes to it I'll put a full spec and spares list with a load of photos etc. in an add on the for sale section before we go down the dreaded e-bay route.
In the meantime here are some basic details in case anybody might be interested:
1983 ti, with rebuilt 1750cc 16v bottom end balanced & lightened, ported 8v head 136 BHP and over 100lb ft between 3-6500 rpm.
Bodywork basically solid, couple of patches on the jacking points for last years MOT but got a good few years in it before a rebuild would be required.
Bolt in cage, lowered on konis 4 or 5 sets of wheels (can't remember without checking)
Spares include a AROC 1.5 race engine, wings, gearboxes, boxes of gaskets etc.
We paid just over £2000 when we bought it a few years ago including the spares and have spent well over £1200 just on the engine and box in the last year or so but know we need to be realistic in these uncertain times.
Although it has been set up for track days / sprints and hillclimbs it is a useable road car (in the summer unless you refit the heater !).
We are down near Bristol and the car is taxed and tested so can be dragged out quite easily.
I think we would both rather it was out there getting a bit of use by someone who appreciates it rather than sitting in a garage not being used.
Will let you all know how the decision goes.....
