Asked me if I'd take it, sadly could't due to lack of space to keep another car, and thats how Supernaut got it. 
Otherwise I'd have it to turn into a stripped NASCAR iinspired Trackcar...

That's a top car for not very much money.  Those later ones like the W reg one above rather lovely.

That looks way less shit than is reasonable for a £200 car, like it has an engine and wheels and everything.

 

You can put the wheels in my shed if you like the concept of storing bits of car 60 miles from the actual car.

In that case your parent's place is probably the better bet given that, with your new purchase, that 30 mile difference will be about £50 in petrol.

I drove Mason to my parents' farm today, to store one set of wheels in the shed.

I decided to go with storing the fancy-pants O.Z. wheels, as they're utterly immaculate, and if I keep them away from the winter salt / grot they're money in the bank. The standard wheels are grotty but have loads of tread on the tyres.
I whacked the standard wheels on and rinsed off the O.Z. wheels before storing them.


Before:

After:

I phoned ahead this morning to tell my parents I was dropping past, but never mentioned what I would be driving. My mum basically rolled her eyes and let me get on with it. My dad, when I told him how little I paid and how much stuff I got, laughed and said "fair enough". When I then told him what size of engine it had, his first reaction was "open the bonnet, then"

:D


The high idle when cold that it does is amusing. When leaving, I just selected D and let go of the brake and proceeded to drive down the farm track at 20mph without touching the pedals. Hurr.

Makes me regret selling mine! Oddly, Mrs SL often makes me feel bad about the fact I let it go (which makes me think I have licence to buy another one some day).

 

I found mine acquitted itself very well on a long, fast airfield-based track. Something twistier with more reliance on frequent, heavy braking might have been more of a challenge.

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13

And a couple of modern Toyotas

However despite the boxes stating "loaves (2)" and "fish (5)", the gathering was left to hunger as the boxes were actually containing a distributor cap for a mark 2 Fiesta and a fuel filter for a diesel Passat.

I've been using the Lexus for the last week or so and put about 600 miles on her until I dropped it at WW's tonight and it's a much better car than the BMW. I've got tabs on some later LS430's on my eBay watch list...
