Mind you, after looking into the engine bay of the Carlton I'd be frightened to use it - any untoward noises & bankruptcy could follow :lol:

AHHHHHHHHH

Firstly the Carlton is a replica due to the point someone mentioned i looked into owning and running a geniune one a while back, you can buy a really decent good condition one for around £15K but if any thing went wrong it would bankrupt me fixing it !!!!!!! Thus i went for the next best thing a replica based on a GSi3000 24v Manual they have a little over 200bhp as std and this ones modified and they have LSD's as std, and the exhaust note is very deep so it fools a lot of people into thinking its a geniune one, so happy days !!!!!!

The Chevette is a Geniune HS and i have done some digging into her history and it turns out she was modified to HSR Spec by Bill Blydenstien shortly after the Shepworth operations shut, thus she is as good as an original HSR. She has a geniune kit inc roof lip spoiler and one piece rear arch and side skirt assy's. And also has the 5 link road going HSR axle set up on her. She has a lot of mods inc engine up-grade's inc twin 48's, 4 into 1 manifold, Rose Jointed Short Shift, Full Cage, and the list goes on. She is actually up for sale and a deposit has been taken on her from a guy in Scotland so it may not be here for much longer.

But that may give me the time and money to finish my other Chevette off !!!!!

Well done my man.

Out of interest - where did you get your short shift kit or was it on the car when you got it? (I was recently reminded just how sh1t the standard shift is!)
Anyone have a 6R4 for sale? Unfortunately I've only got £1K spare but I could throw in a few eggs to sweeten the deal!

All the mods were on the car when i bought her, all i have done is added the 6 Lucas 20 20 spot lights like the old works cars, and also had the door DTV / Griffin Decals made and fitted to her.
