    Clarksons Car years...

    Just been watching this on the Discovery Channel and was surprised at two cars in general..

    the Lotus Sunbeam i knew it was quick with the 2.2 engine but not as quick to do 0-60 in 6.6 seconds :shock:

    and the other one was a Shove-it.... i mean Chevette with a 2.3 litre engine shoe horned into that miniscule engine bay :shock: for cars that are now 20+ year old they both took my fancy i liked them but maybe it was just the power i liked and the fact both cars were rear wheel drive... could have some fun in those

    The engine bay on a chevette is bloody huge. Here's a V6 in one...



    Pleny of room for a couple more cylinders!!!

    Infact the 2.3 strated life as a 4.6 V8 - all VX did was take off one bank of cylinders, hence it has the 'slant' to the engine

    I saw a Chevette once with a C30se in it. A Manta too!
