Hello - just drove 2500miles around europe in a classic 2000 turbo

Hi all,

Im new here,

i purchased a 1996 UK spec 2000 turbo 3 months back for a trip across Europe for 700

We drove from Warwickshire, to France, Switzerland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, and back home in 9 days covering 2500 miles including visiting the Nurburgring in the poring rain.
We also do the black Forrest in Germany and The San Berdino Pass.

Iv fallen in love with my rust bucket but the gearbox has started whining, the cars done 109000 miles and the underside is in need of some welding due to rust on the jacking points. i want to turn it into a simple track car, with no engine mods but some decent brakes, tires and possibly suspension. So let me know what you think or recommend to do.

decent pads and disk plus brake lines will prob be enough, strip it and the weight saving will realy help as well.
