Great car this. Had the pleasure of a few passenger laps in this car around the nurburgring a few moons back. Really well setup. I didnt even realise you still had this! Looks a bit different to how I remember though

My fd was my first rotary totally bog standard....and i had no knowledge coming from modified nissans and subaru....i modified it over 2 years. Coilovers fmic etc. She detonated 1 day after a trackday few years back..was pretty broke at time so went on ebay...i was truly gutted.

Ok, I see. Well, now you have knowledge to do track beast, "few" Renesis have taught you ;) And seems like that car wont need any big jobs, looks like good car to play with. And dont like show&shine...

If oiling and cooling are working, dont have to worry about them. Maybe that gearbox if its noisy. Swap 6speed on it :P

Yep always had cooling and boost control issues on last 1 that lead to its demise. 2nd bite of cherry.

So turned up this morning, reconnected the battery, put a bit of fuel in (there was about 1/4 of a tank in it but its probably 2 years old now so put some fresh super in)

Checked the oil, clean as a whistle and at the correct level.  Turned the key, and got a bit emotional....couldn't believe how quick it started considering its not run for probably over a year now.

Congrats Jon, looks like a nice little project for the winter  :)

Bobfish - I'll bet you'll be a bit emotional when the car is taken away - looks like you've had a great time with her in the past. Be good to see it back on the road though  :)

Damn, Im so jealous to Jon at the moment... :( Seems like he is getting a really awesome car. Cant believe, that spec and that fast car is only 3500£... I´m speechless...  If Bobfish doesent change his mind :D

But most important is that car is going to good home and Jon will take care of it. (if he doesent crash it! ;) )
