Here's a random picture for sake of it. Missing driving tbh, could do with a blow out. 

May have just done a deal for another old rusty rover to convert into an proper track car with My son.

Should be fun.

You're like me Jake, get bored not being able to drive them so just post a photo lol. I cant even remember the last time I drove DD, was ages ago! Looking forward to the Rover track car build if you get it mate. Would have loved to have done this with my Dad back in the day but things were tight money wise back in them days, so had to make do watching/helping him fix his own mk1 escort and Hillman Avengers lol. Good times though! Great thing to do with your son mate, and he'll not only love doing it just now but will appreciate it years down the line8-)

Yeah should be fun. Not sure what avenue to take with it. K swap or turbo the engine that's in there. Hmm.

Needs to be done on a sensible budget. And doesn't necessarily need to be reliable. 

Can break on track. And fix it up again part of the fun.

Belonged to Krzys's Mrs. Failed it MOT because it's the light weight version with holes in its sills and rear arches.

As I was looking for cheap motor as a project I asked of I could buy it rather than it go to the scrappy.

Gonna have a look at this welding before anything else. Then I think I've decided it's gonna have a k20 in it. Possibly the 160hp variant from the civic type s and accord.

That would be interesting - the k20 in the wife's old accord tourer was good, but just felt lacking for that big beast (especially when full of camping gear and roof box), would be much better suited to this though.
