After about 3 months of hunting and researching, I've found a 1992 red lpt for 2000 euro. Just absolutely chuffed and had to post :) The same seller had a blue lpt which had been uprated a bit, had an intercooler with nice fpt pipework, uprated fpr, and the boost had been upped a bit. Unfortunately the fpr was leaking petrol, the turbo was whining, water pump bearing was gone, there was an oil leak and the gearchange was absolutely terrible. He wanted 4000 euro for it, and wouldn't budge, so I just had to let it go.
Gearchange on the car I'm buying is amazing, it actually seems normal ( I currently have a nissan ). Its an english car, 141k on the clock, but seems to have been looked after. There is some rust underneath from road salt, but nothing serious. Rear shock mounts seem perfect, no bubbles on the paintwork either. Engine sounds sweet, no timing chain rattle. I'll post pictures as soon as I get the car, and I'm sure I'll have many questions as well.

Oh my goodness-- I think it is! :lol: Nice catch.


Phil, I love the c900. I've had six or seven of them :eek: Once you've had one and enjoyed it, you'll never go back...

They have thre wheels and a fondness for skidding along a road on their roof :lol:

My brother saw one travelling down a gentle descent in a village, and at normal speeds. When the road levelled out this three-wheeler flipped onto its roof and skidded to a halt :lol:

But we love 'em anyway! :D Some folk even tune them :eek:

When i used to work at a garage there was a guy who came there to fill up his reliant often. He said it was easy to roll his if you took corners too fast, and he had done it!.

The only damage from rolling his was a slightly bent petrol filler and a cap that was impossible to remove unless you had the special knack. Quite impressive really since i'm sure my saab would get more damage if i rolled it!

Makes me think of the nemesis of Mr. Bean...I forget what particular 3-wheeler that was...
