Or even the slightly rarer Uberflange Stigmata. And anyone who attempts
that deserves a medal for bravery, both for the complexity of custom
machining it is going to require to to parts being made to fit Metrinch
fittings and spacing, and mobody has tried that since the fall of the
berlin wall, and all the East German engineers said "Fuck how did we get
it so wrong, bugger that for a game of tinpot dictators" and went back
to good old fashion AF Whitworth to fit in with other technology of
equivalent advancement, and also because of the roasting he is going to
get from the true classic buffs, the Duke of edinburgh included, is

It never fails to amaze me the people who buy a car for
its looks/image/apparant value .... then decide it ain't fast
enough so they then start modifying it.
Isn't it better to start with something light, then add big bhp ... sort
of getting a head start on things???
Or at the very least, do more research instead of buying on impulse.
Well, things that are very light are usually shit, and don't have all the
mod cons people want nowadays. Unless of course you have space for 2
Well theres nothing wrong with wanting something that looks nice and goes
well, but its people that buy the base model and then try and make it

I think you'll find that many get what mummy and daddy give them,
usually what the parents see as a "safe" car. Then they realise that
the bog-standard Reginald MoleHusbandMobile has as much bird-pulling
power as a dose of the clap.
So they try to make it more desireable.
 I know someone who against all advice to the contrary bought her
child a Corsa, because it was "safe". The child died in a horrific road
crash (no other car involved) and now the parent is an agitator for more
restrictive road legislation. At no point does it appear to connect with
her consciousness that had the child been driving a decent car (say a

could they come to?" and never at the NCAP test rating.

NOW THATS MORE LIKE IT.
I have to dodge flies with my citroen ax.
If there is anything else as flimsy and weak as my ax, i'd be amazed.
...... And then annoyed that i didn't buy one to do some big bhp work on.
I had a stone hit my bonnet once, the bounce up and hit the windscreen.
The bonnet now has a dent ... the windscreen doesn't .... therefore the
windscreen is the strongest part of my car (yes and i believe those rac
