Car of the Month November/ December 2010

  Submitted by Steve Slight



This is my X1/9 which I have restored myself. It was originally gold, but I wanted something different so I mixed my own paint colour, a nice golden colour that has a hint of green in it.

I spent 8 months rebuilding the engine, rejetted the carb and fitted a k+n filter and a race spec cam. I have also fitted a leather interior.

I have owned it for 4 years after my brother had owned it for 18 months previously.
