Hi Steff! Not been on here for months! :oops: Work in the oil industry is not good at the moment, so the Viva has been mothballed for the moment. In storage until the Corsair is rebuilt as a daily driver! Got to get rid of the Fiesta to free up monthly funds. Once that's done, the Viva will be back in but it's getting a 2JZGTE from a Supra as the Cosworth is going back in the Corsair!

Regards, Leigh.

Hi guys! Not been here for a long time! Yes, I still have Valerie... she is in storage & will be until 2018. The Corsair is now rust free & undergoing a full concours restoration as will Varerie when she returns! I really can't help myself, can I? I simply couldn't let the Corsair rot away as it is the last link to my much missed Granda Jack. The Corsair is getting a 4x4 Cosworth YB & Valerie is getting the 2wd unit, albeit in N/A form built by Harris Performance Engines, so it'll be a right screamer!! I am looking forward to getting back onto Valerie & have planned out all the period mods including a Holbay 16v replica cam cover & possibly Jenvey DCOE lookalike throttle bodies! I hope everyone is well.

Regards,

Leigh.

Just had a look back through this thread. Hope you get back to it soon, looking forward to seeing Valerie at Tesco car park!

If you're missing your Viva fix then feel free to knock up two sets of floor pans for me ;)
