    £550 sounds a bit optimistic for a car that hasn’t run in over 12 years. £150 maybe.

    Exactly and what can you do with it? Too expensive to rag about and use it in the manner intended, too easily stolen to take it about and go to the pub in it without standing sentry over it. Then to top it all you’ll take it to a classic car show and someone who sounds like his mouth is full of bread will tell you it’s wank and his A4 diesel would piss all over it.

    I don’t know rose tinted glasses and all that, what seemed like a great time in 1988 in the sun sat in your dads Granada Ghia cruising along listening to Paul Young ‘No Parlez’ transcribes to 32 years later cashing your pension in at 55 and laying at a funny angle in your 50’s welding up the sills.

    Finished the NSX.
    Please don't compare it with efforts of someone who knows what they are doing, especially the paint.
    I did get all of the features to work nicely though, opening engine compartment, pop up headlights and steering.
    I removed the driver's window because the 'masking tape' that I used when spraying the black windscreen border, bled everywhere. The other windows were not so bad.

    You could buy an old classic but unless you’ve the ability to repair it yourself it’s going to cost you. Plus cost of parts, as soon as the bottomless pockets of the yuppies get into it the prices of spares goes through the roof. Take cassette tapes before the hipsters got into them you couldn’t give them away, now even a Engelbert Humperdinck tape is worth £11 million quid.

    I’ve got a spare Superkings cement mixer I’m sure somewhere. 
    Anyway im going to do a restoration on this sad specimen. It was a wildcat dragster but the engine has been filled in, the suspension is fucked, no glass and it’s been painted. Badly.

    It’s not a lack of skills usually . Simple business . Enough snaggy shit comes with normal jobs without taking it in on purpose. 
    I could rebuild a Maserati engine no problem - would I take it on as a job? Would I fuck as like .

    60mph Head on into an Audi A4 that turned into my path. Had I been in the Senator/Sierra/Mercury/manta at the time I’d have probably died. 
     
    this is one reason I love Mk3 mondeos.

    I’d establish first if it’s the manifold blowing or the gasket, sometimes those type blow in between cyl 2 & 3, it usually cracks. What you could do if this is the case and what I’d do given the circumstances would be if there is a crack try some intumescent sealant, smear it in to the crack then let it cure. Might do the trick. Cast welding something like this is unreliable as they’ll usually crack again.

    Managed to pick a 9 pack up with the MGB in, pleased to see they have started doing trailers as well, the kids favourite one is the caravan from a few years ago as you can tow it with the others. Sky busters were there too at £3 with the Top Gun ones. Quite pleasing to see that they’ve made an effort to broaden the range somewhat.
