    I don't know the spec and I don't know the car, but that is immaterial. It is still a used Dax. If there are really people out there who will spend close to £80k on a "recreation" (ie kit car) then...

    But it's your own fault. Your excessive CO2 emissions are causing global warming, making it rain more, which means you can't go out and cause more global warming! Mother nature is a clever b*tch!;)

    At the risk of sounding like a troll (which I am not); at that price; maybe 2055?

    Sorry I couldn't help it! Seriously? 48k for a Dax?

    I'm off now.

    How can I tell a MK1 from a 2 from a 3 by looking at a built car? I'm assuming the seller will not have built the car and may not know.

    Cheers. That would seem OK then, as I will not get more than circa 200hp out of a 3.5 without spending so much money as to make it unviable and potentially unreliable.

    Hi,

    I am considering buying a sierra based Sumo with RV8. What sort of power can the Sumo chassis/ Sierra running gear take safely? I am planning to re-build/ re-bore the lump to give as much as...

    Thanks I checked. It has little information but says just "PILGRIM". I checked another that is for sale at more money and that says "PILGRIM COBRA". No mention of Sumo on either.

    I don't know about the V5, but it is not on a Q plate. I presume the reg is from the donor, as it is a K reg, so donor 1991/2. I presume most Sumos are Sierra based? It's actually up for less than...

    Seems cheap?

    Hi,

    I've seen a Sumo with RV8 for sale which, on the face of it seems very cheap. £17k and it seems to have all the right bits; painted, Image wheels, good interior.

    Does this seem cheap? I...
