The project mpact thread is worth a read. Quite impressive engineering to my eyes.

I know. Probably easier to just Google instead.

Ta DJ. Will have a read later. I've read a few over the years, but it was the silly Disco one that had me paying closer attention to that section of PH more. I'll try and find the one-off special called Medusa that some bloke built later - I helped him out a few years ago with a land/highways dispute.

Another thread from the Heritage F1 guy with the high milesage 996.

This time it's a 1998 Minardi F1, in the original condition it was last used by Minardi 8-)

This one has been one of my favourites to read. A guy that's had a lot of Vauxhalls over the years (Monzas, Carltons, Senators mainly). There's a general theme as per the title, but towards the current end he goes into detail about his "Lotus" Carlton - genuinely interesting to read about the history of this particular car and how it came to be.

Why I’m not allowed to own “two” of anything anymore......
