Re: Ford Sapphire V8 wanted

Anyway have got what I was looking for, and a lot of what I was not looking for. Seems so many people think that getting a conversion running is the be all and end all of a project and to hell with how you must butcher things to do so. Stripping and rebuilding / fixing / replacing as I go. Which on...

Re: Registration NDot

I asked one of the ladies that works for us (she worked for Alberton traffic before) to collect forms for me on Wednesday. She said that Alberton traffic said it needs to be done before 1st January. I went to Boksburg this morning to do my Sapphire. They gave me different form to complete than Alber...

Re: Lets talk Cobra's

I agree a good cobra is going to be +- half bar. I always wanted a Cobra and still always look at autotrader to see what is available. But the good ones do not come up for sale often. I had good look at Backdraft due to the fact that you can use M3 suspension and brakes. I also liked the 17" rims op...

Re: stroker kit for essex V6

There was a V6 Capri in Boksburg early 70's (Harman Munting I think owned it) He used chev rods and pistins can't tell you from which motor. But I think it was +- 3.6, his car was faster than the V8 Peranas at Kayalami top speed runs.

Re: Hi from one Petrolhead to all Petrolheads on the forum

Hi Doug, My sons always liked the Sapphire, but hate the petrol consumption. They get between 7 and 8.5 litres per 100 kilometres with their turbo cars and still have good performance, I cannot argue with this. Hi ZA Perana, Yes I hope the Sapphire goes like we planned it was supposed to be finished...

Hi from one Petrolhead to all Petrolheads on the forum

I'm the same as most of you on the forum and spend way to much on cars and it's never easy to sell. I will always be a V8 fan, although my sons are trying to convince me small boost power is better. My V8 history is as follows: 1972 Ford 20M RS that we fitted with Granada Perana V8 1975 Ford Granada...
