After the need for some new panels and various other parts after Cadwell, it was decided the best course of action would be to buy a complete car to donate what was required and which would be used to pirate further parts from as and when required.
eBay turned up trumps again, with Richard and Darren collecting the car and other spares from a great guy called Jim. Thanks to Jim for his help in loading the car on trailer and making an excellent cuppa.
The bodywork is in fairly good condition. The engine was recently swapped but currently doesn't run. The reason is believed to be some kind of electrical glitch, so Darren and Richard plan to sort that out after the driver's front wing, light, and other parts are used to repair Karen's car in time for Mallory Park. Here's hoping that both projects run smoothly.
Karen was considering stripping the car of what was required, scrapping the chassis and selling on anything else. Richard on the other hand, is day-dreaming about using it for a MK2 turbo engine conversion!
