  1. Pop in for a cupa when your up over the moors I'll probably be in the garage for the next year or so when I'm not working
  2. An AK Cobra rep pick up next month and I've got a Pontiac Firebird motor on its way to pop in old school carb one
  3. I've been a bit quiet on here since the MSA ROPS change a few years ago Ive been trying to decide what to do next and enjoying the car on the road Its been great and I've enjoyed every second of it especially the speed series, that's why I bought a Westfield But the need to build my own from start has taken over rational thinking and I've sold up Some who know me better will already know it's not a Westfield The new owner has promised to join your ranks and I might just hang around to keep an eye on you all Its been great Andy
  4. I'm thinking of parting with my Megapin MK3 600cc race sprint and hillclimb car. It was built in 1993 by Ian Scott of Megapin Racing Cars as a hillclimb sprint car and is running a Yamaha R6 bike engine with the 6 speed gearbox. 340kgs and 105BHP = 314BHP per TON. Slicks on alloy wheels and a set of wets on steel wheels. Protec shocks new 2 years ago. Exhaust in stainless new 2 years ago. Quick release steering wheel. New FIA harness fitted last year. Last year it had a refresh with new front wing, rear wing, side pods, nose cone, engine cover and lost 30kgs in the process. Megapins are based on the old Mini's so drive shafts, diff, brakes and hubs are easy to obtain parts for and R6 engines are common and quite cheap too. It's a great way to get into a single seater and I've had a great time . I may consider a px for something interesting like an AC Cobra kit car project, Maybe a Land Rover or Range Rover or even a RIB boat [not sure where I'm going after this much fun]. Please no time wasters or dreamers. Its a race car and not road legal, no heater, air con or roof and no driver aids at all. It's a complete assault on your senses and a crazy ride. If that's not for you buy a Toyota Prius and move on!!!!!
