Finally Back in Action

Guys,

Thought i'd let you know that finally after about 15 months of being of the road my calais is going to be back very soon.

I have owned the car for 10 years and it is still in immaculate condition. Its also a original 5 speed.

Brand new rajab built bottom end, head recoe'd with port and polish, HD springs, special cam with adjustable vernier.

The MX7 has been the mother of all my problems, I have had new parts actually made up for it which have taken a long time, and shrtened the throw etc in the box. She will now hold the power with ease.

Plenty more of the usual mods of course.

So if you see me out in it don't be shy give me a hello.

White / Silver Calais rolling on VX GTS with a sunroof.

Cheers
