My uncle and cousins are looking at going to The Ring next year with a few of their mates. The challenge that has been set down is to get there and around (in the best time possible) in a car that only cost £400.
Has anyone got any suggestions? They're pretty handy with DIY mechanics but their experience is gnerally with Triumphs (mostly Spitfires, GT6s, TR6s, etc).
I've pointed out a Vectra V6 on MIG that has a poorly engine and suggested that they keep a look out for Astra GTE bargains on ebay but I've also said that it may be worth trying to pick up a MK3 astra and chucking in an XE or XEV or something (should just about be under budget if they shop smart).
Anyone got any other suggestions?
