Thought i’d say hello, i’ve always been into cars and had quiet a few, mostly hot hatches.
After driving an 1.6 mk1 a few years back I knew I wanted one, so after selling my motorcycle I bought a Mk1 1.8 Havard, not in the best condition but it’s not rotten either. So far i’ve replaced the very rotten exhaust and learnt the hard way about the different size cats. I don’t live too far from Goodwood and managed to take it on a track day a few weeks before lock down, which was great. The car did start to get on the hot side, but the roof down and heater on full resolved that for the day. Since then i’ve replaced the radiator, thermostat and hoses. Hopefully i’ll test that out soon.
There is a long list of things i’d like to do to the car, at the moment i’m working on the essentials. First of which is the handbrake, which is only making token gestures towards it’s job.
I’m sure i’ll meet some of you once the lock down has finished.
