Those two are just for the engine, my LC runs off a 24v system and needs a fair bit of grunt to start. I have a separate 'leisure' battery for the fridge and charge points that is rigged up to a split charge system.

I didn't actually mean to buy it, I bid on ebay expecting to be outbid and no one did. Adam only comes with 3 doors and I needed 5. Plus it's a poor mans Fiat 500.

Ah I see. Buying a car on eBay without test driving it is braver than anything I could do tbh, how do you know you are not buying a box of problems ? (Unlikely on a low mileage car). Was it from a dealer ?

I'd already driven a 2015 corsa thoouugh different variant so no shocks there. The guy buys them cat s and has garages do them up. 12 month mot plus i had vauxhall near me check it out and it passed on everything. He's got v good feedback and posts pics of the damage. Cost 4k for a 2015 with 5.5k miles plus the se is the top variant besides elite. I'll pop a link up when I'm home.

My daughter has an Adam. The steering and handling are shocking.

The corsa is very solid, no suprises in steering or handling, it's actually quite a dull car to drive even though it's a 1.4 90bhp. It has city mode which loosens the steering wheel, good for parking.

The bunny or PC? It's overkill for what I need, but should be fun. Been offered a ludicrously good cpu cooler for a decent price, but having just blown my budget, I'm a bit reluctant, even with the good price. Trying to shift the cooler I have now, if I can get £20 for it (maybe even £15...), I might go for it. Even more overkill, but at least it won't be too hot.

This has been on my wish list for around 15 years, I started looking seriously 2 years ago and finally found what I was looking for. It's a turnkey factory built car from a company called ERA based in Connecticut, they are one of the premier companies in this business with a reputation for a very well engineer product that is an accurate replica of the original Cobra.

Thanks guys, after getting flooded in Harvey last year and having to rebuild the house, I decided life was too short to wait any longer. It’s a very visceral experience to drive, definately have to recalibrate the brain after driving my regular car.

Well yes and no, it's a 427S/C car with a 428 engine, which may of the originals were actually fitted with to keep the costs down. Engine build specs are:

• 428 - Believed to be a 1968 block based on some of the numbers
• Scat 4.250 forged crank and rods giving 462 ci
• Mahle forged Pistons
• Edelbrock aluminum heads
• Edelbrock aluminum intake
• Holley 750 vac carb
• Howard hydraulic roller cam
• Harland Sharp rocker assembly
• Canton road race oil pan

A streetable engine with 500HP and 520 lbft, which works nicely on a 2600lbs car :D

Don’t worry , I’m unlikely to have people round who will soil it with poo and Rapey jizz

I have many faults, but lack of hygiene is not one of them

So it will be soiled by normal jizz or is all jizz rapey in your head?

I had to. Went with the 2700 which is a 1.3 ton vehicle without the turbo the 2500 has and no airconditioning. Had the back section rubberized. It is an impressive 2800mm long x 1320 wide with drop sides. Really was a nice drive from the dealership but not a vehicle I will get to drive much.
