    turbo and intercooler look out of place but it must fly. would look better with a clubby front, extra 90mm of turbo hiding goodness

    No where near as epic as the civic but here is a bit of Morris in my dads shed if anyone is interested

    Morris Minor panel van (year is mid 50's cant remeber exactly)
    Mods done in the 70's. All info is from my vauge memory of dad telling me years ago/ looking at pic

    Holden Red motor bored to approx 200ci
    engine mid mounted, firewall recessed
    torana font end (brakes ect)
    Ford 9in diff and rear brakes ect
    Very short drive ratios
    Peugeot Steeing rack (from memory.. there is something Peugeot in there lol)
    Mooneyes hydrolic brake and clutch setup
    3 point harness' ect
    Had tripple webbers but were taken off for streetablitly... now has dual side draft carbies (something like that)
    Was regoed up until 97ish when when my parents started to build out house and couldnt afford to have 2 morris minors regoed (the other one is my dad's first car that is another panel van with a 1100cc healey sprite motor) so this one got the cut

    It used to be a show/drag car, seen pics had immaculate british racing green paint, engine bay all grey wrinkle coat

    It ran a 13 sec pass... which now is nothing special, but back then was a bloody quick street regoed car.... Espeically from a morris minor
    Chucked wheel stands off launch and had wheelie bars on it :p

    Unfortuantly 30-40 years later it is looking worse for wear...espeically when we were moving into new house it was living outside for a good 5+ years

    Really hope we roll it out of the shed in the future for a respray and rego...
    would be an epic cruiser
