      Hello everyone!

      For every buildup... There is a story.. And here is mine:

      It all started when The Brit was driving around the country side of the UK. He spotted the car under a tree full of dust and decided to stop! After a Chat with the lady he found out she was a widow and that her late husband was the original owner of the breadvan. With 80k miles and mint condition he bought the car on the spot and brought it over to USA. A friend of mine went and bought the car from him! It was live at first sight for me. I offered to buy it from him, but he wouldn't budge. Until he found the car he really wanted, Acura EL, so he called me saying he needed to sell it right away to buy the Acura and gave me first pick, there were 3 others trying to buy it. But since he knew I would appreciate it more then anyone, he waited on me to get home from school. We closed the deal after I took my wife on a ride in it!

      I got it and changed wheels right away! As he sold me the car with 13s steel wheels.

      I drove the car a bit and first and only problem, the dizzy went. After getting tired of looking for it I found the forum of Club Polo UK. Became a member and started looking at the British tuning style, and I have to admit! The 1.4 16V AFH is very nice with the carbs.

      So I started looking for all the engine choices. And finally bought a AFH there. It will be shipped to me and I will get it going and carbed! I will be doing more things to it.

      Orchid Euro is going to get it here.. and I have some amazing people over there helping out to get the engine to the port!!

      Here is what Is being done: (red is done.. Blue is being worked on)

      Engine
      -AFH swap
      -Carbs
      -Electronic ignition
      -Shave bay
      -Slim radiator
      -Polished bits
      -Powdercoated bits


      Interior
      -Wood steering wheel
      -Wood shift knob
      -Leather wrap the cloth part of the seats (not the checker board)


      Suspension
      -Cup kit
      -Bags over struts


      Drivetrain
      -Rear disc conversion
      -New bushings all around
      -New breaks
      -Powdercoating on all metal bits


      Wheels
      -BBS RF reverse mounted prima Donna style with gold bolts and gold center cap


      Sound
      -Custom Side exit exhaust
      -Custom stealth box
      -Custom speaker mounts
