    I had the odd ride in this one many years ago- it used to live nearby.

    Probably doesn't qualify, as it's a plastic bodied kit car, but underneath this Burton Sports it is all standard 2CV Citroen.
    So certainly not the quickest of cars, but should be economical.

    The Aston Martin Red Dragon was black, but it was owned by a Welshman:

    Welshman and dragon are a good fit.

    This is interesting... they sort of "fixed" everything that I disliked about those P1800's
    420 hp, 2 liters, 980kg, carbon fiber etc

    What did you dislike about 1800s? I had a P1800 (Jensen built) & an 1800E. I thoroughly enjoyed both of them - though underpowered & aftermarket swaybars were needed. A friend had an 1800S that he put a Judson supercharger on - which bumped it to a little over 150HP - that was a fun car.

    There was "something" about the esthetics that wasn't quite right. I still can't say what exactly but this one does not have the same problem. This looks like a slightly lower roofline, longer hood? I can't put my finger on it, perhaps it is just the wide stance?

    Oh, I liked them well enough, and thought the ES (shooting brake) version was genius. (I did a full on restoration of one of those)
    A 400hp 2liter Volvo engine would fix anything that may have been not quite right. The 122 Amazon suspension left a little to be desired. Big sway bars, Koni shocks and sticky tires could really improve them.

    Edit: they mention a "repositioned greenhouse" I think that's the original detail I didn't like and apparently someone else didn't either!

    I still want an ES & am bummed at what prices are like nowadays: 40K minimum for a clean one. IPD (I think that was the company) parts applied liberally to the suspension made a huge difference.

    Ya know, the one I restored (took it to bare metal, motor trans, suspension etc had a tree fall dead square along the centerline through the windshield and the owner who was the original owner is pretty well bummed out. It is totalled and just last week I suggested we find a good core (no rust) and rebuild it using his car.
    They are available from 3500 bucks not running to 50k+ for a cream puff.
    We just have to find a California or Arizona car...
    Which you could do. The running gear is dead simple and readily available...

    Getting said AZ/CA body back here would add 2-3K though. No doubt that the running gear is simple - one of its pluses in my book. Years ago I used to do quicky "rebuilds" on B18s & B20s - hone, timing gear, rings, rod bearings & lap the valves to make that rusty 122/140 last another 25K miles - for $400.

    We both know that a B-20 can can rebuilt for a song...
    240k is nothing for a volvo.
    Did they even make those in automatic?

    Friend has one of these, Vauxhall 6 Calais.
    It burned in a fire but the metal is solid, it's half restored again.
    I gave him a hand with the wooden framing.

    240K may not be much for the drivetrain, but it is for everything else. New dash, seats, door panels, carpets, all new rubber, etc. etc.

    Yes - many were auto unfortunately.

    I don't have a heated shop - for car or boat. I have one that'll fit my dinghy though - does that count?

    Useless info... The design for the 911 was actually one with a zero in the middle. BUT, since Peugeot had a lock on all production model numbers with a zero in the middle, Porsche had to use the next number with out one. Hence the 911, and a legend.

    Don't actually remember which number was the original? Not 904, 908 or 910, which would have passed. Maybe 909?
