    13's for $1300 barina sb?

    cunts, ive bought this for $300:



    my plan is to gut the thing, like seriously, no interior bar a seat and clocks, big holes in stuff, and perspex windows, and add a 2.0 calibra engine. does the car have to be roadworthy? and reg'd? cos that blows $700 of my budget.

    advice?

    ta.

    If you can sift through the Chav-Spec rubbish some of the UK Opel/Vauxhaul forums have a lot of info on these things. Wealth of parts commonality between the GM Family I and Family II engines.

    Subscribed. I have a soft spot for these. I found the Mother in law a decent one of these things and she liked it so much she put it through a lot of plate glass, an office block and a heap of marble tiles. Fair effort really. Been almost 4 years now and she hasn't driven since. Good luck with it!

    Never race a car that you like.
    This will be an excellent race car.

    If you've built 20 of them, what advice do you seek from us?

    Did they change the firewall on or something on these? The printer I used to work for had 5 SB Combos and the one I usually used couldn't fit my steelcap boots in the driver's footwell. Yet no issue with the other, newer, ones on the fleet.
    They were less shit then I thought.
