interesting programme, seen most of them so far i think. i like the engineering aspect but never like the end result and think yeah ok they are one offs but I don’t see where the unrealistic valuations come from.
sos is my favourite if i’m honest.

The Firenza (droopsnoot), was a cool motor in my opinion now and back in it's time. I didn't have the cash back then to buy a Firenza, so settled for a 2.3 Magnum. Basically a 4 door Viva with a big engine.

Nice looking motor, the Firenza was the coupe version of the Magnum. I like the shape of the coupe version, didn't have the money to buy one back in the day. Was 18 when I owned my 2.3 Magnum. These are holding their value now, funny how some cars do, some don't. Maybe one day the calibra might, although the turbo 4x4 version goes for a bit. My prediction is that the first that do will be the 2.0 8v engines & the redtop ones. I'd have the 8v version if I was to buy a calibra now.
I put a 10" sports steering wheel on my Magnum, without PAS. Those were the days when men were men:ROFLMAO:I also managed to break off one of the steering wheel spokes on the 10" wheel, not a problem, I just mig welded it back on. The days when safety always came first:ROFLMAO:
