As suggested by Ian, I thought I would create another sticky thread with links to the resto threads for the OHV cars (the 1300 & 1500 engine cars).

DazasDolly's 1500TC (Mable)

Andrew_27's Toledo (Tina)

Jordan T's Toledo (Eeyore)

Purplebargeken's 1300fwd (Flipper)

Howard81's 1500HL auto (during his custodianship)
The same car under the custodianship of the next owner (Cheesy) HERE

Purplebargeken's 1500TC (Lemondrop)

Lord Tolly's Toledo (Little White Tolly)
Purplebargeken bought the car back and continued the thread until he sold the car again.

Purplebargeken's 1500TC auto (Snowdrop)
The subsequent owner's resto thread is HERE

Tessa the 1500fwd during Nathan's custodianship
The bodywork and paint thread HERE
Another thread HERE

Mat T.'s 1972 Toledo

Purplebrageken's Little Green Dolly

Dollyboy's Project Gloria a 1976 Honeysuckle Toledo which had a few mods done.

If anybody has any suggestions for any other such epic threads, I'll add them to the list.

Nice one...!

Maybe a thread for modified/track day car convertions/restorations?!

It's good to see these OHV motors together.

Well I'm flattered obviously, but I'm not sure my car counts as an OHV any more, since its Vauxhall engine is SOHC.
might be better off in Grifterkids proposed modified thread!

Yes it should be in such a "modified" thread.

I'll get to work on it...

Can you add Nath's 1500FWD to the list then I can update it.

Cheers :D
