been thinking of jacking it in and getting a Noddy Car

Anyone had any experience with Westfields/Caterhams? I hear they are cheap to run.
I wouldn't mind a focused car kept in the garage for dry days and track use. Maybe get and 400 quid banger for day to day use.
I've had two big bills on the Spec C that's left me wondering that there maybe alternative routes.

Re: been thinking of jacking it in and getting a Noddy Car

a mate of mine has a "stimulator"started off with an Alfa Gulietta Turbo engine in,fast as fook,then wanted more power and grated a cranked Rover V8 into it from the other "stimulator" he bought,which now runs Flux's TVR Tuscon championship engine in it,all i can say is,foooooook,1st and 2nd are a complete waste of time constant 360's whether you want it to or not ..he's also got one with a "busa turbo"in it,that is awsome,cheap to run there's not alot that will keep with either cars round here


or you could do what a mate has done and go classic tax exempt
just a shame my dolly isn't tax exempt
