Cant wait, really excited, just talked to the current owner and made the arrangements to go and pick her up. Going to be a bit of a pain but hopefully have enough guys to help get it out and onto the trailer. Wait until you see the pics of it now!

heres the only pics i have of it from about 12-13 yrs ago.

I could never be pissed messing about with that. I doubt I'd want any of my old cars back, let alone one that's fucked.

Best of luck and I hope you see it through.

Its not that bad with some time and cash thrown at it - jobs a good 'un, if I had the chance to get my old XR3i back which was in similar condition I'd sort it.

Looking forward to the progress mate, ignore the 'why not buy a minter to start with' shite

All in all a good day, well pleased, couldnt care less about the condition its in, its my first car and i have it back, its going to get fixed properly and i cant wait to get it onto the road, most likely to have a 400 bhp 4x4 cossy stuck into it since most of it needs to be cut apart anyway.... cant wait!

Totally over the moon, the wifes no too happy but i think she knows fine well that there wasnt going to be any other decision than bringing it home, its the car that i always wanted back and when i had it all those years ago i talked to someone down south, (think it was roger motorsport?) about putting the cossy in. Being 17-18 i didnt have the money to do it but now i might just be able to swing it....

was sitting in the seats last night making brum brum noises!!
