There's something about these that I really like, there not super quick or the best styled, but there is just that "something" that makes them really appealing!

Health to enjoy!

Im in the same boat, theyre just wee granny cars until the subtle TTE touches make them stand out.

Tidy example, speedlines look in great condition, rare enough found nowdays in good condition. Looking forward to seeing it back at original spec.

Fair play to you but can't see the attraction. Your old BMW sport would be ten times the fun.

As Jola said when your scrubbing pots & pans @13 you have to be realistic what first car you want to aspire to.

Another Bay of the Garage filled Barry! :laughing: Best of luck with it, will you be at the 7's meeting this week?

The Starlets a bit like your Imp project, it just sort of happened lol

Yep, roll on B'court! You heading down? Think me & the woman are making a weekend of it (Heading down Fri evening)

Edit - just re-read, won't be able to make the meeting but on for the weekend.

Great wee car, we have one we use for lanes rallying. Just the normal 1332 starlet sportif but runs great and nothing done to modify it bar the back seats out and a strut brace. In fact around 95 percent of the southern drivers now use Starlet's although they are the 95 shape but same engine the 4efe.
