About 1750cc worth of naturally aspirated excitement. During ownership, I replaced every single part of the drive train – including a hand-build of the motor with Macca, having had his cousin do crank, bearings, replacement pistons and rings. Tuned length extractors plus the wider pots made it a little more exciting than usual, but I think I was more excited than anyone else.
It used to terrify the fathers of the girls I picked up in it.
Well… it made them laugh with something.
Perched on the back is James Danenberg’s pork pie hat, which disappeared when the Subaru Liberty was stolen a few years back. James: I still have your books, wish I could return the hat.
