    Bit of a chavvy reputation but could be bloody rapid cars, crazy to thing off the power figures some people made from a 1.4 8v pushrod engine. Just make sure the boost hasn't been wound up before you rag it else it'll be short lived lol.

    I've been racking my brains, and I can't think of it!

    I'm sure it was Ian - but I'm talking about way up in the Highlands here.. he lived in the Strathconnon Glen.

    Edit: I'm remembering more about it now. It was a deep purple colour.. and had like, pink specs and styling on it too I'm sure.

    Ah right, not the same guy then. My mate painted his a kind of purple colour and stayed at his Grans during the week just along the road from where you live now.
