@silverfrost - Yep - Quad Webers 45 and 48's were put in the works TR7 / 8 Rally cars. Should sound awesome too, downside is 4 to 5 mpg when full throttle. There is a lot more to do on the engine yet but am getting there.

I remember going to the local dealership evening launch of the Mini Metro back in about 1980 when I was a kid. They had a Tony Pond livery works TR7 V8 in the showroom. There was plenty of what used to be called merchandise for sale. My parents bought my brother what could only be described as a bell-bottom jump suit in that red, white and blue design. I only got a BL rally team helmet sticker.

Lovely Alfa :wub:

Yes, the Alfa was just gorgeous. I also liked the 2 Proteus C Type reps that were there, as the build quality just shone through. Perversely, I was quite taken with the '62 TBird which, although obviously restored, had been done to an extraordinarily high standard. I liked the added touch of the 'Vote Kennedy' sticker in the windscreen too! :)

Feeling the 80s Group 5 love at the moment, just think the cars looks awesome,  and have a feeling project Kermit will be getting a lot wider,  looking into getting a spare set of my Esprit S2 rims cut out and made into 3 piece rims and stepped up to 17 " to put a set of 335 17 " on, should fill the gap lol   :)

Think an extra foot each side of the Esprit should sit well,  with radiators moved to the rear arches  :thumbup:  Have only tried it on a Fujimi model kit so far as i cant get my hands on my bodyshells lol,

I spent a good part of the weekend with another silver turbo from the 80s. 80sturbos.thumb.JPG.6b60ffc1774c7bc1fa5c5702a38c8807.JPG

No guesses what the other car is? Or is it that obvious? I had never seen one in the flesh and was surprised at the speed it held dancing through the corners on the long winding sections. A great driver I must add, me and the AMG were happy to use our power advantage to follow his pace.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.
