Diamond 24v breaking
« on: November 11, 2016, 03:33:36 PM »
Due to ill health and lack of funds i have decided to break/sell my Diamond the car has had the engine completely rebuilt with abs chains new guides as well as bearings and rings the head has been skimmed and ported and flowed and hasnt been used on the road since! The shell is in need of the usual tlw and a new screen and tailgate plus a few other odds and ends due to the engine work i want 1500 for the whole car or 1200 for the engine (to do just the chains and guides costs around 2000) so not that steep really!
what would life be like if we all drove fwd cars? feckin boring that's what rear drive or bust

Chris. Is that the one that was kept in your garage ?.
1993 2.0 CD(X)i Auto Estate (Rioja Red very little tin worm & reasonable paint).
RIP - 1992 2.0 CDXi Manual Estate (Spectral Blue with far too much tin worm, now only parts).

Old age means wondering: Do I really have to struggle to become an expert in something I might never need to do again.
