Back to the land of the living again.....

So about a year ago, my beloved GTV died on me from a cambelt failure. Lack of funds meant that I had to leave it on the drive and buy a ``sensible`` car. So I bought a VW Bora diesel. Boy what a comedown. I actually have to plan overtaking manoevers a week in advance now!

I can't take it anymore and have decided to take the plunge and buy a recon engine (any suggestions where to buy one from would be most welcome) so that I can get behind the wheel again.

Hope to be back in the land of the living again soon...:-)

Do an engine rebuild, it's very satisfying and you finish with an engine in tip top condition.
