 Is it this?.....    ;)



As suspected.  Another IC!   Can't keep the boy away!  

Footnote.

The irony would be Captain Cyphus if, as you ebb into old age you become physically disabled!  We all know you're not quite right in the cranium but it would be a fitting destiny!! ..

Stuart, that engine is not the right one for your Bambi ! You will need tougher suspension for that lump!

The pictures of the fully cleaned up Tippen Delta are available to interested folks from me. It tests out OK electrically, has all its bits assembled on the car, minimal replacement purchases required - headlight rim, standard Wipac, Girling hydraulic overhaul and there is something missing on the rear valance but not sure quite what as the boot clips have nothing to hook on. I have a set of new tyres, an obsolete size now, available for £50 if the car is to do more than static display. Seems it is a Mk6 and one of only 5 Tippen Deltas left if understand correctly. So actually quite rare and in a very easy to restore condition. Sat in my drive at the moment though it is Stuart's car. It will re-regester on its number we think as it has a record and a chassis number. It can go anywhere a G-Whizz can plus you might get away parking in disabled slots.
Next up BX and then onto the next 'Schmitt for a wedding.

Bambi - yep I was waiting for the price to be to much for Fizzer as I would have paid more. However it was his lead so first dibs go to the finder. If it had been a free for all I would own it I think.

Loverly Stuart! Well sniffed out and you barged Mr Bear aside in the scramble! All you will need now is a Suzuki CP80 engine with cvt transmission and a completely modified braking system and you will be away! Although as you have told me many times before your just as happy to looking at it. Looks quite nice in white.

This opportunity to acquire a very fine Tippen Delta has now passed as money has changed hands on a deal so it passes on to be restored and used as an electric powered car.

Charlie Watts, the gentleman drummer of the Rolling Stones has a collection of classic saloon cars like Lagondas and Bentleys. He does not drive, but makes his own suits and dresses to suit the car, then just sits in them relaxing in style. This was mentioned on Top Gear by guitarist Ronnie Wood, and this has been confirmed to me on a drummer's forum by Charlie's drum technician.
So Stuart, you are in fine company!
