A quick introduction
I am TheLaughingCow (my friends call me martyn)
Im in Essex, ive been into the classic mini scene my whole life.
A regular poster on online mini forums and my daily drive is a 1978 mini clubman saloon.
For years ive been trying to find a mint reasonably priced Triumph GT6,
(not everyones cup of tea i know!)
i must be a sucker for poorly built british rustboxes
then i stumbled across the MX250 kit..... WOW imediately i knew i have to make one of these. I've had two mx5s eunos imports before and i love the way they handle (almost as good as a mini!) the last 2 months relentless rain has caused an abundance of viable donor cars, so what better time!!
This week i took the plunge and ordered the Mx250 kit.
I have already sourced the donor car, a Manual eunos v spec with LSD, aircon power steering, tan leathers. came with plenty of sellable extras, a new tan roof fitted(with heated glass screen) 2 sets of original mazda wheels, tan torneau, a full car cover
even had full tank of petrol, MOT and 8 months Tax
all for £600
only needs some minor sill repairs, (my job for next week)
my build notes are as follows
* Im not building a ferrari replica, just a classic looking fastback coupe
* want it ready for spring 2014
* as many mod-cons as possible
* once assembled and prepped, vehicle will be vinyl wrapped
as a demonstrator for www.essexvehiclewraps.com
* Must be FAST
* Must be LOUD
i will add some donor car pics
