Volvo hotrod something of an acquired taste!Wasn't that heavily featured (twice irrc) in Custom Car many moons back?

It's been about for many years. Andy Saunders originally built it in about '81/'82 I think. It's really a piece of UK Kustom history. Nice that it's been kept alive all these years.

Its been rebuilt twice, and has looked completely different every time.The first version of it is featured in a book i have.It was lighter in colour and had single headlamps, and looked like a 50s american custom, think 'Grease Lightening'Its been around for aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagggges now, looks bloody nice.Wonder what happened to Saunders six wheeled CX..........

While I respect Mr Saunders, I think that Amazon is fucking awful.Amazons don't have the width to carry off this 'Kustom' bollocks that everyone thinks they can. They're not a bloody '53 Mercury and I wish people would realise that.They don't have a V8, so they don't sound right.Also, a lot of how a modded car looks and appears to me is actually down to the surrounding environment. You might be able to wing that in Long Beach, but in a car park in Putney when it's pissing down? Fuck off.Perhaps it's just because I was born after this hot rod craze died down, but I really don't get it. I didn't get maxxing either, and I think most originality purists are boring shits.I'll go and get me 99 Flake and top it off with some MISERY, grrrrrrrr.

Looked standard but had a very very hairy 24v twin turbo lump. Blew the motor at Bruntingthorpe doing something on the hairy side of 190 mph....

Don't you mean the SCARY side of 190 :shock:

This one's pretty gruesome in white. Even though it's all the fashion now because of ipods it still reminds me of when Bonnie Tyler drove an all-white Golf cabrio in 1988 :roll: It's even got one of those popup sunroofs. Just what a homebuilt car needs is another hole in the roof

Interior looks smartly done by component car standards and I still like them.

Are they designed around Mk2 Fezza doors and glass?

This car was to be an easy to do project for me as i am not mechanically minded, so much so, that just changing the plugs was a challenge. However, i did change the plugs, and even went on to changing the points, condensor, rotor arm and cap. Now, it did run and drive lovley before i decided to do these things, as i drove it home when i bought it, but it seems not to want to start now, it seems to fire up but not start, i checked to see if petrol was comming out of what i think is the fuel pipe but non come out when i sucked it and the new plugs i put in are still dry.

 

Well you certainly can't call this guy a quitter. :lol::roll:

Those 1.4 Sport Fiesta are pretty rare now but man, did they rust badly.

 

My mother in law had an 87 E plate one in the early 90's when I was still in the motor trade and it needed new rear arches before it was 5/6 years old. Really badly rotten too, not just a few scabs.

 

What an abortion that kit car countach is:

I can't remember seening a Corolla this shape before, Quite a tidy thing though.

It's a KE20, must be quite a rare shape. Street Machine built one in the late 90's and fitted it with an engine from an AE86 when AE86's were £100 scrappers! It also got the AE86 struts and mk1 Celica LSD. All bolted straight in. It was a utter hoot to drive. I owned it for a few years. I believe it went to Ireland...

Eh? The man from delmonti he say what??.What on earth is he meaning?Is he selling them as restoration projects.He canny be seriouse surley?

Pretty sure that's the quality of a freebie on-line Polish to English translator programme. I had some Chinese to English versions on trial last year, and this is very similar.
