Short DescriptionOriginal 1.6 pos that I restored to its former glory and a year later it chewed its engine up. Had a 2.0 turbo lump in the garage that I had saved from my old phase 1 605 svti which I later scrapped then found out it was the last surviving model (gutted) so its turned into a bit of a sleeper now.
