My ever faithful 'rolla!
Swapped 20 fags for it to get the tyres off it for the wifes golf. but when I looked over it I decided to have it MOT'd and run about in it (had just sold my M3 the week before)
I figured I could run it until I blew it up. Nearly 4 years of kicking its ass later its still going strong!
In the last 4 years I've added 80,000 miles onto it.
I felt sorry for it last year, stuck some 2nd hand spax and lowering springs, a set of alloys off a scrap Rover, a new radiator and timing belt on it. Other than the odd service or to top up the washers I've never had to lift the bonnet!(Y)
I could have a nice new go faster car if I wanted but I promised myself I wouldn't ditch the Rolla until it died. It just seems a bit tougher than me!
Stripping my K11 out and tracking it crossed my mind as well lol. Might not be fast. But i bett it would be funI'm driving a pre-facelift K11 1.0 with battered bodywork, it was originally just going to be a temporary car but I've grown to like it over the last couple weeks so I think it's going to end up as a stripped out track slag.
