Mis-matched wheels front and rear. It's already a genuine* drift car!

They're not mismatched, the rears have just twisted with all that torque.

 

Edit: In reverse gear.

Here's some more of it here

 

 

Great to see it still alive and kicking, brilliant car that.  Must be one of the most-owned Autoshite cars now by far.  I really like my 420iL with the same engine but somehow it's not quite got that same feeling as the 220SLi had.

 

I notice that someone has upgraded my scrapyard battery to a proper shiny new one but the proper Rover mats I got from Rimmer Bros are absent!  Considering it was looking pretty tatty last I had it, the bodywork's held up pretty well, I do hope it stays in the fold, it's something of a forum legend now.

I bought it for its towing ability but have since bought a 940 estate for the same reason so I'm hoping that someone else on here will want to take the rover on.
I've patched up the rear arch so it's unlikely to fail the next mot on welding.
I've had a couple of swap offers on it including an e36 318is and another 940 lpt estate. I'd rather it stayed within the fold but there seems to be a distinct lack of people who really want it.

If it really won't shift I might have to step in to stop it leaving the forum, although I could hardly be further away and have absolutely no need for a second 2.0 Rover hatchback!  Fingers crossed someone can offer it a home on here.

Aye up Mr FOAD, i'd be interested in some bits off that Polo, I often travel up to Dundee area with work, not sure where you are but let me know if thats doable. My son has the same coupe model, I know he would be interested in the grille / possibly tailgate & other bits but let me know and i'll have a chat with him. Next time i'm planning a trip up is around Nov/early Dec.

It's getting stripped and scrapped as soon as possible so let me know closer to the time and I'll see what's left, I'm selling everything cheap to get rid of it so if I can break even on it, great but there's a lot of local interest so I don't think I'll be left with a lot of stuff.

 

**Edit** Just saw on another thread you have a 1986 Lancer, If you could get me the parts required to have a lancer front end on my Proton I could hold some parts for you.

Quite a productive day, managed to sell a pair of front seats and a tailgate so soon enough I'll be able to claw half the money back I've wasted on the Polo...

That's the guy I bought it from just out of shot in the right photo. Definitely the strangest thing I've found in a used car...

Yeah, I've not heard anything from the concerto guy so didn't really have anything to report back with, I've given him your address and explained the situation.

Checked the spare on the Volvo and it's the same as the rear wheels so I'll just need to find another the same to have a complete set.

No, that style of interior is worthless so didn't see any pointy in removing it if nobody will ever want to buy it.

That will be one of the first things to go when it has it's makeover along with the pikey graphics. I'm toying with the idea of painting it but haven't decided whether to paint it red or change the colour altogether.
