I really love the look of your car. The decal/paint colour combination works really well but there's lots of nice little touches like the side repeaters and even the type of tyre seems to set the "old-school" look off nicely. And, of course, it's beautifully clean and polished.

that's really nice of you to say so, thanks very much.

I only have a couple more mods to add and she will be just about perfect in my eyes, according to the look that I am going for.

I'll tell you true about that Mk1.
I had to wring the last Bjeezuz out my 1840cc Mk2.5 Sport through the twisties one time just to keep up.
Looks can be deceiving..it's a ruddy Velcro to tarmac go-kart to boot that wee beauty.

Latest addition, a bit more security to hopefully deter any casual thieves...

NRG short boss and quick release.

Interior is looking good (similar to mine minus the tan and leather).

Do you find you catch your arm on the window switches? That's the only thing that put me off getting that style.

Got my roof cleaned and reproofed today.

Brushed, hoovered, washed with Johnsons Baby Bath and then reproofed with Fabsil Gold.

Just need to get her through the MOT on Monday now! Then I can do a proper For Sale post.

Cars looking great, apart from the ugly for sale sticker, you should take that off and keep it 8)

Life is a series of chapters opening & closing.
I hope whoever signed the adoption papers treats it as deserved.

The new owner is a 50 year old engineer who plans to keep the car until he gives up driving & has plans to turbo her.

I trust he will look after her.

Now she's sold, I guarantee my piece will finally appear in Soft Top Hard Top that I submitted last Nov :D

For anyone that's interested, the new owner of my Eunos got in touch today with an update.

She is now running a turbo and putting out around 230bhp so a wee bit quicker than when I owned her!

Lovely car. The only thing that puts me off is the offset reg. plate!

Probably would show a Scoobie a clean pair of heals. Nice.
I had "fun" with you just playing keepy-up in my Sport before FI. :shock:

Just had her MOT'd. Not even any advisories. I might be interested in selling my Mk. 2.5 SVT, though. Reg MX54 TWO.
