Here is my Peugeot 205 1.9 GTI Rally Project. I thought Id see if theres any interest in it before its storage for the winter. Currently in dry storage, but driven regularly on the road as a pleasure car.
The only reason Im considering selling it is due to going abroad for a little while, and rather than it sitting in storage Id rather someone was enjoying it and taking it rallying! Or track days, sprints, weekend drives etc. It would do all very well and with a broad smile on your face!
So about the car, I bought it as a well setup track car and have started converting it over the last 6 months into a tarmac rally car.
Ive spent just over £3k on it so far upgrading with no expense spared on what Ive bought, not to mention the countless hours. That excludes the cost of the car itself. A labour of love.
