Looking to convert your Dolomite?

Can't source a Sprint engine, axle or propshaft?

Don't want to copy the MX5, CA18, V8 crowd?

The perfect sustainable solution:

I have a few that don't need that much modification to have such a conversion.

I would love that as the old bill could not take it, fine it, as a car is not a car without an engine.

Might be a bit of a squeeze getting it in the bike sheds at school though!

Be a bit annoying if the dicks were in my way on a country road. Theyre bad enough on bycycles round our way, ignorant ba***rds. Rant over carry on :)

Cyclists don't bother me much, round our way it is scatty girls, barely in control of very large horses that make life miserable!

Horses should be under a bonnet, or in a field, not 2 abreast in a country lane!

I take it her expensive pastime involves something with 4 hooves, big teeth and no road sense? She is fine with hers as they are 400 miles away from me!

And yes I did mean brake horses!

Today I saw 2 more scatty girls on massive horses, this time, both of them were on their mobile phones! I wonder what the legality of this is?

Maybe I should've done this to the Corsa that I'm working on. It would've saved the young female owner a fortune in road tax, insurance, petrol and the cost of getting her licence.
