Car of the Month June 2011

Submitted by Tiff Nowak

Bought from a classified ad on "Pistonheads", the car had been off the road since 2006, when it was vandalized and the quarter window broken. I trailered it home and it started right away with a bit of petrol down the intake. I rebuilt all the brakes and fitted a replacement window, gear stick and went through

all the electrics. The car died a few days later when the crank sensor packed up. A new one was fitted along with a new timing belt and full service. It's now MOT'd and on the road, and will be doing 250 miles a week to work and back. Plans are to get rid of the horrible exhaust, tidy up the body a wee bit and hopefully take it abroad!
