Yes its member Zippystars car. It has a few issues that Mr Sibley will be helping me with. (thanks Dave your a legend)

Its the first time i drove a 21 today, and with out sounding too much like a wimp, Its fast. I got in it expecting it to drive a bit like a heavier Renault 5 Turbo. Nope. Its smooth, powerful, comfy and quite honestly a pleasure to drive. Thats like the exact opposite of a 5. lol Well kinda my 5 is quite powerful actually. Anyway besides the few little niggles like speedo cable needed and gearbox mounts, im really happy.

I know that car from somewhere. the exhaust is a JAP slash cut jobbie, and remember selling it to someone a long time ago ?

Who was the previous owner ?
