    Spotted this on Ebay - summer time motoring - its a big out lay of money, but what a car and the time an effort that has gone into it would it be worth the money, the main reason for looking is that i am after a Dolly Sprint and I missed a good one last week.

    If I had £15k to blow on a summer car, I could think of many better than a Triumph, like a Caterham 7 maybe. Damn, for that money I could buy and run at least 10 used cars that could put the Stag to shame on power, looks, comfort, handling, etc. but each to their own. A car is a very personal thing.

    Good luck with it Paul! :)

    So what about a MK 2 Escort RS2000 drop snout

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ESCORT-MK2-RS2000 ... 7C294%3A50

    Plain and simple bare bones motoring - No airbags, no abs, no T.Control, no driver aids, wind up windows, no air con etc
    and only a radio - bring in on.

    Paul.
