Fiat 500 Awaits MOT

Our Fiat 500 Abarth has now been finished and is awaiting an MOT. We’ve soldered the wires to the bulbs in the rear lights to resolve the poor condition, repaired the number plate light, choke, fitted a fiddly gear stick head, completed the steering rack conversion, amended the electrics and brake master cylinder reservoir.

A Car For Life: 1998 Citroen Saxo VTR

Craig recently purchased this little 1998 Citroen Saxo VTR, which is the same model and year of his first car. Fondly reminiscing his early days of driving, Craig tells us he’s bought this to keep for his son to learn in. Loick, Craig’s 4 year old son, will be owning and driving a much loved classic when he’s 17 in 2034.

Craig’s Saxo, which was identical to this one, featured TSW Alpine Wheels and a large sound system. Unfortunately, Craig and his beloved Saxo had an unfortunate run-in with a tree, for which the Saxo did not survive. It is rare to find a Saxo these days that hasn’t been mod’ed and changed for rally spec. This particular motor has been loved and cared for with only 20,000 miles on the clock, making a unique example of the much-loved daily.

Until 2034, this little Saxo will be cared for and stored, awaiting its new owner.
