Prospective Westy Owner

Recommended Posts

Hi all, looking at buying a sports car (weekend/track use) that fits in my tiny single garage and a 7-style car fits the bill.  

Obviously Westys have a good reputation and a fantastic enthusiast following so I’m keen to get involved. 

Not looking to buy new and I’m after something that I can work on with my son to teach him some mechanics so in the market for an unfinished project or cheap second-hand car (old/needs renovation maybe?).

I’m a mechanical engineer by trade (time served) and so fixer-uppers, failed engines etc are not an issue.

 

If anyone has any advice or knows of a car for sale that might fit the bill please let me know - I’m based in Warwickshire.

thanks in advance :yes:

Thanks Stuart, yes but only if I could find  cheap kit, don’t want to spend the money on new

In order to protect members privacy from all the bots and unscrupulous people that inhabit the internet and bombard us daily with spam, I’m afraid there’s a couple of things the club has to be strict about, one is only allowing paid up members to use the PM system. And the other, is restricting the ability of non-members to post in certain sections of the Boardroom, even those on the one month trial membership.

I hope you understand.
