In the first pic, is that where you got the car or is that where you stay?
I drove past there the other day checking out the Opel Rekord that was there.

That's where I bought it from Mark, the guy had a decent 20M too ...

Cannot wait for the body work and interior to be done ... while that happens I will be doing some stuff to the engine too.

Twin 38 Webers (Rolly intake) ... high compression pistons ... cam (not sure which one yet) ... aluminium radiator ... aluminium rocker covers and a bunch of chroming and dress up bits from Burton

... quick one ... i have been going back and forth about whether I should put in a 302 or just keep it V6? what do you guys think?

looks awesome, love the old skool rim in black

my cousin was selling a 2door as well but no papers so didn't want to buy it, a friend of mine is building a Granada 2door( might be a Perana, will need to verify) with a 460ci motor
