Thank you for the kind comments. The ride height in that photo is about as low as it goes and its a bit wearing to drive like that for too long.  Normal height is a bit up from there, but I was only going to drive into the middle of Regent's Part at dawn and block the road completely the one time to take that photo so dropped it down.


I'd like to have some fresh paint on it and try and getting looking smart again since there's various bits of primer and a front wing which is just clear laquered over bare steel at the moment.


Here's a photo of the Herald's engine not long after I did the swap.




There's a thread on that car on the blue for anyone interested though there's not a huge amount of detail on the Mazda swap.

Happy 50th! It's spent a good proportion of that time and mileage with you as well and it's definitely a car that has a lot of character and stories to tell.


This photo comes to mind when I think of it, emphasising the donk stance of mine......

That Little Chef is sadly now a Starbucks now....
Sans plomb or death.
