    Lude Has Perished, Time For An Upgrade

    So while cruising at 100kmph under no engine load apart from rolling revs, Timing belt snapped at 285000 k's. Very early for it to snap and not a really happy camper. So rather than throw more money at the once proud car I decided to bin it at get something that is practical for me and my wife.

    We love to renovate so needs a tray, love to fish so needs to tow the boat... only logical choice was this amazing machine.

    First photo of when I bought it.



    This photo is after a good was and in the setting sunlight so you can appreciate the awesome colour.



    This is it after getting the last of the parts fitted that I bought with it.



    This cars a dream to drive...
