I love this thread. Cars will always be a side-issue with me although she who will become Mrs Desert Polar Bear has a bug eye Impreza that I'm quite partial too.
I've just dropped my Beemer engine and gearbox off (two cylinder air cooled boxer bike engine) for some major rest0 and modification work. It's going to be north of 5K which is stupidly more than the bike is worth, and then I've got to ship it across the Atlantic.
Sometimes there is no logic only love and lust, and that is no bad thing.
Looking forward to more updates.
