AWESOME.

That's the absolute spit of the one I had a few years ago!
The Turdmobile, as it was not-very-affectionately known, was the same colour spec year verything. Don't think that one has got the optional mossy footwells or mouldy headlining though (there was a hole in the A-pillar that let the rain in). Probably my most shitey of shite to date.

Donor Engine From: 1989 Rover Metro GTa (MG) 1275cc A+ Series engine (leaded fuel)

OK. But why? That Smart would have been 62hp originally with a very light 599cc three cylinder turbo. It now has a '72hp' lump of oil dropping pig-iron bolted in the boot...

The car was built on a budget and time frame, so some things could have been done better

Yes, like fitting another Smart engine?

I've also got a few spare bits left over...

Oh-kaay...

Now that's some pointless 'modification'. Why! Why!How would that be affected by MoT regs? And which unlucky sap has just paid two large for it? Imagine if you bought that for yer bird.... "Is it a turbo?" "Even better than that my dear! It's got a Metro engine... wait... come back.. waiiiiit!"

Gotta be a decent investment, even if you just biffed around in it for a few years, much betterer value than a 7000 mile '07' reg Micra.

How old are you milf? I'm insured with Footman James (I think) on my old shitters, seems to be a standard fare of £90 off them for a classic car policy!

I'm 22, as far as I know Lancaster is the only classic car insurance provider that insures anyone under 25. I managed to get a good quote from them on my old 900, just over £200. They must think the Audi is a bit too thrilling for me.

O - K. So, does that make him more trustworthy?

I doubt it. I wouldn't trust anyone called Dave further than I could throw them.I think he's just put his name on there so people know who to ask for if they phone him. Nice car though. Although the lack of a rear wiper is puzzling - pretty much every hatchback Ford above a Popular had a rear wiper in the '80s, as I remember it.

The 440 is the light duty 'ping pong ball delivery van' - slightly higher geared and a marina car axle. The 575 is the hard-ass builders van, its got an MGB axle which is stronger and a 4.55:1 axle ratio for a 60mph terminal speed.

Ah, turdZ. I'd been getting all excited over 4.5in wheels too. Some MGF bizz woud look snazzy though.
