still got the dakar also for the moment ,,will prob let it go for a fraction of its worth to free up some room on the drive , thing is with the dakar , you can only sell it to someone that wants a dakar , and as the company has not done any promotional work or demonstrater builds since steve bennett died , there are not many people that are hooked on getting one, shame really ,, will prob end up selling it for peanuts

hi kev ,, to be honest i am driving this every day and the fuel actually seems to go further than in the dakar , even though the engine is a lot bigger ,, i think its due to having an auto box and cruise control etc , it does run well , i am very pleased with it , yes dj harry would be looking agreeing to this for the shows , i will be getting a sticker replicated that he had on his nova as a bit of a tribute , ''aint no vauxhall''
plans for it ,, well i bought this one because it is mostly original with only minor mods , a few blue led's , thats it ,, first thing is to bring the imperfections up to scratch , list so far , replace front grill as small crack in existing one, replace side light as misted up replace speedo mech as not counting the miles on the odometer, and a mate is going to recharge the aircon for me next weekend, that is really all i can find ,, when that is all done i will look at fitting the seat swivels that i have for it so all chairs can be turned to face each other for a game of cards etc ,
chassis and underneath is mint so also looking at finding somewhere that can waxoyl it for me properly ,
