  • New Toy

    The son in law has over the weekend bought himself another motor to play with and i can't bear to say what make it is.
    The clues are as follows --------

    It's Orange in colour
    The wheels look like snowflakes
    It's a three door
    The rear badge has a "S" then a "T" followed by a "3"

    ----- asked him why he had done this and he replied with a big grin "blame yer daughter" --- apparantly he picks it up next week.

    The Beemer as gone to a chap who said he would have it as it stood (smashed) so our Glen bit his hand off.

    Yours truly is looking forward to having a go in the aformentioned orange machine, and according to press reports they are pretty descent motors and have all the toys.

    Will keep you informed when i trash it --- ooppps, sorry, thrash it

          Should be careful there mate, they might pick up on the pushrod V8s in the Monaro, or that the XE and LET engines can trace their heritage back to when Cosworth came to help GM out

          I do like the rebranding Ford do though, fish an engine out of an old car, stick a .....tec badge on it and give it an up to date engine management. Vauxhall would never do that

          Would they

                      Yeah, the ST3 has all the toys, top of the range and all that, but in all honesty they don't do anything for me ---- must be mi age.
