You put a nissan motor in an Alfa?

I'm not sure how to react to that - a little bit of me is sad that it is no longer original ..


But mainly I think

I want one

Why not? Alfa put their engine in a Nissan.





DO NOT PUT ON KNOB OR BOLLOCKS!

Not my V6 £999 winner then? There's an article in the pipeline, thought it might be this month.

thanks, should be a laugh if I ever get it finished! Sadly a house move further from my parents has meant a process of finishing and selling projects to make some space!

Will get back to the locost one day!

The Alfa must be a genuinely really nice car to drive now? Theyve always fallen into the same group as TVRs for me, I'd love one but only with a new engine, box, wiring loom............
