Are there any cardboard boxes where you are going, and does the Capri handbrake work? If not, you'll have to take the 8. :lol:

Yes mate thanks..bit sore today but ill live..car will be sorted...it was never a show pony...track stallion will return...
Its not a runner...i do believe the Turbo Technics suffered fuel starvation on the out pistons and apparently that is what is wrong with this 1...its been in a container 10plus years...i keep telling him to get it out and restore or sell...he keeps threatening to put an s2000 engine in it...
Ill get some piccys next time im down there.
