@ Alastair Clements (and thanks to Goodwood for the prompt) - the 309 GTi is an vastly underrated car. And hearing you know of an Mi16 engine whereabouts, this surely has all the makings of a fine track car project/editorial special series...

Sorry to be away for so long, but i have to agree the 309GTi was greatly underated. I turned my last one into a little bit of a track machine on a budget(£522 spent inc purchase, top end rebuild, suspension rebuild and stainless exhaust).
It did three track days and the only fault i had was a broken bonnet catch, which is more than could be said for my friends Evo and Impreza which took about 15mins to lunch their engines!

It also did a road trip to LeMans, though i was glad i had left the interior intact for that.

Wish i hadnt sold it, but i had a need for something RWD!

If you have the oportunity, buy now before they all disapear!
