Thought it was about time to get some pics up of my little project.
Is a 1990 import which seems from first impressions in pretty good condition. The last couple of months I've been stripping a doner car (1991 BBR Turbo) for any parts that may become useful in future. These include, AutoPower roll bar, Koni adjustable shocks, uprated adjustable sway bars. These are the cream of the strip but have also a full set of suspension arms front and rear along with subframe which come factory braced and have lightest of surface rust being an old Californian car. Happy Dayz
This is not going to a big build just a revamp. Funnily enough remember saying that when I was into 5th scale RC car.
Anyway just for now some pictures of my Ernie before the work starts. As said it looks fine but I do look forward to the road ahead !
No mate, last couple of years have been full on and no real free time to work on the car, but now just wanting to get on the road and have some free time 👍 Bought the car from a friend of a friend which purchased it from somewhere in longwell green. Was it your old car ?
Thats a shame mate - If you ever want a hand with anything just message me as I always keen to spanner on 5's and only live around the corner. The car has no history with me; I just would love to see more MK1's around as they are few and far between around here.
howardb66: Had a drive of couple of 911s. They’re a funny old thing with the engine dangling right out of the wrong side of the rear axle. They go nicely & make a great noise tho.

wannabe: I drove one on one of those experience days - it was just like I've read about, all patter-y front end and weight transfer! I can see why people who like driving like them - the challenge of getting it right must be constant and rewarding (until rain!)

V6: The reality is, I suspect many of my dream cars would end up in a hedge on fire.
