Thanks everyone for your replies. uummm maybe a no go
as I, like most people want to build one of these cars because of their dimensions and therefore looks. I think I will just have to finish my house here in France so I can put it on the market to move back to the UK. If we get what we want for this house I will be able to afford to build a car
. Just to throw an idea into the air, would a Fiat v6 engine fit into a Herald/Spitfire more would the drive train handle the power?, I can buy a whole car for £1500. I would really like to fit a Maserati engine but I think they might be a bit pricey
p.s Paul ,I saw on your thread that you were visiting Friends in Oxford, I'm from Oxford (Headington) just wondered what part of Oxford your friends are in. Looked like a good night.
