I'm sure the B-series transplant has been done, but as with the Minor, it's a big chunk of weight to dump over the front wheels.  It's significantly bigger and heavier than the A-series they came with.  I've had mad ideas of using a 2.0 Pinto or 2.3 Volvo 740, but really, a 1.6 or 1.8 MX5 engine and box would be a long way more than adequate, and somewhat lighter.  And we all know how MX5s like to rot!

My second A40 had a mildly tuned 1275 A-series and that was plenty powerful enough for the car - unless you're going to start upgrading wheels, brakes and suspension I wouldn't have wanted much more than the ~70bhp that was putting out.

Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow "Chipendale dashboard" - you live and learn, I wasn’t aware Thomas Chippendale (2 'p's please) was knocking out Shadow dashboards in the 1780s along with all the tables and chairs.  I guess we should be thankful it doesn’t have a Chippendales dashboard.ADCA1767-2067-49B4-B708-A44B01579DD9.thumb.jpeg.80ceb11629cedddb59f4cf06cfdd5882.jpeg

Tatty as hell, but 26k miles, a beige interior and nearly a year's MOT for £600? Bargain!

Ooh very nice, (well, not nice but you get the gist!) remember that exact one being up for sale last year and it caught my fancy then ... 🤔

The most expensive Daewoo on Gumtree, you do only get 28k miles on the clock though.. 

A snip at £1495. That's what I paid for one some fifteen years ago when I bought mine on an 03 plate in 2007/8! 

It's a 1.6 petrol manual. Which was as dire as it sounds. Not quite the £howmuch tax bracket though as it's older than 06 and not an auto. Fuel economy? 30mpg if you're lucky 😬

Mmm, misery. I still never found a good reason for the little LCD clock being placed where it is on the passenger side.

It's the strip club owners choice.
