I don't know why, although I suspect it's because it's Lamppo, but I really did burst out laughing at this!

I hope he brings it to the next GTG.

Thanks for all the comments guys, esp the **ss taking ones, all very funny.

It in pretty good nick body work wise, and the chassie and underside are solid. It has had an LPG convertion so should be nice and cheap to run. The inside however needs a bit of attention, a good clean, new seat/bed in the back, 3 point seat belts in the back installing, I think I will also replace the front seats as they are bucket seats and I dont think I have a "bucket-seat-ass",a leisure battery+split charge relay. And the internal lights need re-wiring because some fool has wired them off the rear near side light cluster which (i think) has cuased the fuse to pop and wire from the fuse looks a bit dodge.

It has been lowered for some reason which I am yet to fatum out, as for the alloys and fog lamps, they will be going at some point as I want it to look as original as poss.

Oh, and she is call Chucky Sue. :D

The name is just a daft name my lass heard on a kids program and it tickled her, there is a fair bit of work to do, but it is basically ready to use now just want to put our mark on it and make it a bit more homely and safe. The guy I bought it of used it (to sleep in) when he went stock car racing so it smells a bit oily inside.

The beds do cost a few quit, which is why I was tempted to sell the 2009 FLE, but I just couldnt let it go, think the 78 speedy will have to go instead.

Sounds like a lot of (fun) work! What about the writing on the side? :wink:
