History
A old rallycar, well used, hard used, still a rallycar.

A buddy of mine bought this car many years ago. It went at that time very well with 2,0L engine. The car was sold with such great remorse that he a few years later bought it back.

After a few years of big spending, much engine construction and working hours and little driving, he decided to go up a division when it comes to cars.
And put the car for out sale all to cheap.
I could not let it go so cheap. So I bought it.

for further inspection:
The top was cracked pistons were burned, rear side was torn loose from the floor.
The chairs and seatbelts expired.
Maybe the price was right after all.

Now I build new a head, but did not manage to achieve the same flow as the custom built head. But I approach these numbers... little by little.
