    Re: TVR with Essex V-6 engine question

    Re: Closed Rally Car - Options?

    My choice would be the Volvo 122s. Plenty of rally history, plenty of parts (IPD) and plenty of support. Nearly indestructible.

  13. Re: Anyone have a Marcos? or seen one in states?

    Sold for $9200. Problem is that they didn't make convertibles(spyders) until much later with the 1986 Mantula. So that was a chop job.
