One of my customers has a scimiter with a 4.6 ex range rover v8 stuffed into it.

It's a beautifully built car and looks standard apart from some modern bmw alloys

It's a proper 'what if' car that surprises everybody

Sounds well fit as well!

In the mid 90's I was based at HMS Inskip. It was in the middle of nowhere. Access was via some nice twisty A and B roads.
At the time I had a 1380 mk2 cooper, it went well and was more than a match for the Nova GTE, Capri 2.8 injection, PUG 205 GTI that my mates had. Until we hit the motorway then I was toast, it ran out of breath at about a ton!

One night, I nipped out for some fags, I needed to go to the 24 hour petrol station that was quite a way from the base. There was a big roundabout under the motorway, it was quiet nothing on the roads as it was the middle of the night, I was busy giving the cooper the lead foot, Making it slide as I came on and off the power.... I suddenly realized that there was a police patrol car parked up :oops

I slowed up, they followed me for a short distance then flashed for me to stop. Luckily the policeman was a mini fan, he was more interested in the car and what the engine was, than nicking me for speeding. :D
