New project - This time with Board Approval!

#1 Post by GTiJohn » Sun Nov 26, 2017 3:32 pm

OK so it's not one of our club cars and not even a Rover but I couldn't resist, especially as my first car was also a Dolomite, just not a Sprint and that's of course what I really wanted!

Think of it as the GTi of its time.

These are of course the 'good' photos :laughing2

This time I ran it past my first and as it's neither big, nor ugly and doesn't have orange carpets it got the thumbs up :clapping

It's a long term one and won't deflect me too much from club business
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams
