Post by Paul WAP347 »

Hi I have just picked up my old black 2 door splitscreen ford 3tlr Ro20 supercharged morris WAP347 I sold the car about 20 years ago with out the reg now ( XFF120) on it. I kept the reg & walways said I will get her back one day ! & I have ! The chap i sold it too , did not use it & only did a few small jobs . There is a load of work to do but I will enjoy all of it . best quatermile was 12.3 with nos , not bad for a daily driver . she was featured in streetmachine & custum car back when i had hair :D

Welcome to the forum Paul.

What an excellent outcome! :D Really great that you were able to be reunited with your old friend, did you customise it yourself back then?

I was, but not done it for quite a while. Drag racing the minor took over, and I've yet to try my latest one. I've also got a tweaked X11 which is a bit quicker than the Blade.
My launch technique lets me down, Blade kept spinning and lifting at the same time, whilst X11 has linked brakes, so burnout not easy to do with my short legs :D
A couple of mates ran quick suzukis - mid 9's.
