Hello from Cornwall

Postby kdr555p » Tue Aug 04, 2020 11:06 pm

Hi there, just joined. Based in Cornwall with Firenza and Sportshatch which i've had for many years. Thanks to the lockdown finally making concerted effort to finish the Firenza and get it on the road. Engine fitted over last weekend so getting there. Anyone else down here in the far West?

Hi Fred. It's a 2300 HPF which is coming together well. Whereabouts did the Red Firenza come from? Not seen before. Thanks as well David for the welcome! Pics also of the Sportshatch. I'll add pics of the Firenza soon as 3 seems to be max!

Hayle, that's a fair way on from me. Trailered or drove home? We collected a Sportshatch years back, just after Hayle off the A30 but that's another story. Hi Marcus, thanks for the welcome. I've been following Adrian's exploits on the forum. I did see his Firenza in Cornwall on Penzance Promenade in the 80's well before he owned it. I've added some pics of JNX ftom last Saturday when we fitted the engine. It's a tight squeeze but we got there quite quickly. pics may show in reverse order,tried moving them around but no success..

Drove it home - only ran out of petrol once! :oops: Fortunately had a can in the boot for just in case - wasn't used to the 3.5 V8 thirst :P
Yes Adrian likes his cars and get out and about more than most :wink:
