McGuinn,

I don't get this: are you for real? :eek: Have you actually destroyed Toad's car? :eek: If so, how come?

Yes Mel, sorry!
Minor slip-of-the-wrist with the long arm, and the car got whipped away and trashed onto a scrap heap.
It's going to be made into small chunks of metal now, then shipped to the nordics for melting....
If you look closely at the first photo, you can see the AO sticker on the rear window!

The reason for all of this mahem...? Well since I brought it racing in a quarry it's been sitting outside of my house! That was 3 months ago! I need to free up space in the drive-way now that I have a new 145...

Who's BONKERS now??? :lol:

I'm going to sell the engine as one part.
Toad will be on soon I expect... :) he's working at the moment.

I stripped everything from the car, only thing left in it was fuel pump (by mistake!) and an old gearbox from my current 145... oh and stinky upholstery...

I'll have a chat with the man himself shortly.
I'm sure he'll be on the blower quite soon as he honestly didn't know that I was going to do THAT to his car!!! :lol: :lol:

Maybe we could arrange for you to bring the belegured car over here, and I will do the engine replacement... I woudn't be up to doing a conrod/crank myself though, maybe Toad would be more experienced with those.

Don't book the boat yet!

The story goes....

the bottom end bearings went, towed it to my mechanic 5 weeks ago, mechanic has been very busy, mechanic sent crank to engineering company to be reground, engineering company ring up yesterday to say crank is unrepairable plus one conrod is mashed, today am very !!!!ed off and have mostly been looking for new engine/bottom end/second hand crank/miracle...

i dont know whether i can just whack a bottom end from a 1.7 16v on it, i dont know whether i can bung a crank/bottom end from 33 series boxer engine on it...

so many questions that not alot of people know the answer to :(

not driven for 5 weeks and am getting really annoyed!!!
