Default back to an hard top for me nice s2

got an hardtop again after having to break my last one as it was rotten then had to get an run round quick i had a cab turbo come up cheap but i miss having a hard top so this came up cheap .the car has been sitting for about 8 months. some bits needs sorting big time here are some pics when i got it back home. There was no antifreeze in it what so ever car was just about running it was miss fireing like a bitch when i got it and found out it had wrong plugs in it so got a new header tank and some antifreeze and new leads and plugs it just about runs now i got told there was a quife gearbox in it but there are no bills to say it is i said it was fucked gearbox leather not to bad in it also the alarm is about as old as the car some chave bits on it to come off asap car is from Scotland if any of you boys know if it. the car in in the rsoc up there it has been well looked after in the past just a shame for the last 5 years

so it was you was it i bought this car on ebay only to be told he had sole it that day lol. was a bit of a trek to come down for it to be honest! I bought a white one at the weekend instead for similar money. Agree about the gearbox that bit didn;t add up to me either, advertised as a straight cut one that wouldn't go in gear?

I wanted a white one anyway so will let you off

Loved southend, havent been for a very long time, about 2003-4. On a tuesday night i think. You can tell when you were there. Also remember on thr journey home, coming up to the halfway house, 2 cars coming up from behind, your convertable absolutely pissed past me. Then it seemed like the sapphire cosworth didnt really have a chance.
