"Can't fit anywheres" - killing myself.
She's only got 40k on this one. Took Dad and I 3 weekends for the swap. Looks like 137k is just a little too much for the Prince models - lesson learned. I really do love these things. First one (nan gave it to me for my first car, sadly she has now passed away) had 60k on the clock and needed a new CAT and gear links. Wrote it off early this year and bought the Nightfire red one with the insurance money. Everything else feels solid on the new one and she runs like anything now. Can't wait for the pulley to arrive so I can get the wheels on her. I've attached a photo of her so you can see why we bothered to go through with the trouble instead of flogging it! Beautiful car, not a nick on her. (Any idea of the lifespan of the gearbox, Mike?).
the prince will do 200k but with 60k timing chains and 8k oil changes and seafoam cleaner through them helps and driven no more than 3k for to long but any engine has a point where all sensors and stuff that really is only designed for 100k tops need doing, just makes me laugh people buy 100k cars and are put out when they break,, and then the other people when looking for a 100k car looks at one i have got for sale say thats had head done and chain done new clutch etc proper been through it with the future in mind and turn it down because its had all that done to it,,, all because the AA and RAC have guides on how to buy a secondhand car for the dont have a clue type people,,, hmmm trouble is these guides are all based on 3-5 year old cars with under 60k on them really and yes if seen one with 50k and its had a engine rebuild you would want to check the rest of it very carefully but chances are its still a good car with a new engine in fact better car because it has a new engine,, but people are clever enough to think they no what they are doing because they went and used the advice from AA and RAC etc, just cant teach stupid lol
