    Hi guys,i never got any decent pics up when i first come on the site so thought i would put a few up of the scrapper lol,brought this evo really cheap locally from a rough estate and it looks like its been abused by a few owns but looked after by the early owner,its my second fun car so its off the road at the mow and i go and do bits when i can get the time,to be honest i couldn't really afford a Evo and always wanted one from way back saw this one locally knocked the guy down £600 on his asking price so it was a done deal :)

    think this was the first pics when i picked it up,lots of sticks all over it that im picking off bit by bit

    just to get it up to std really,not going to do anything other than maintenance to the 4 engine drive it till it pops then fit a later engine,then i will probably go for more engine mods, i plan on keeping the car a long time so who knows what it will end up like nice and clean i hope :)
