Hi guys its been a while. So this may sound a bit vague but bare with me......
I'm searching for a very distinctive car that was on here a number of years ago, if I remember correctly it was for sale. I was just wondering if any of you could remember it or the owners name and find the link.
As I say it was very distinctive
Black evo 1,2or3
it was a big power drag car

great looking thing, I was having a discussion with a friend who is considering building something similar

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Joe

Not one of James Rumseys cars that evo400 helped build, spending a ton James’ money in the process? Those were the days, lively banter on here and tons of falling out! Everyone only cared about how much power you could extract.

Didn't James run Evo VII's? First a road car then a spaceframe thingy?

I am sure there was another chap, called the roofer or similar.

Seems so long ago now.

Cheers,

Guy

Yes he did, just wasn't sure if he had others though. I know he was loaded and Evo400 used to love spending it :mhihi:

It does seem ages though, was a hive of activity in those days. :smthumbup

This one?


I also remember a black Evo 1 street car on black 15" slipstreams, it had around 500-600whp if I recall, I can't seem to find any pictures of it though. It was definitely for sale at one point, and I never saw it again.

Hi guys. Some fantastic cars mentioned above. I’ve enjoyed looking into them.
However sadly non of them are the car I am thinking of. This was more a home built drag car, no tube chassis just a high powered black evo 1-2-3 if I recall it was for sale.
I’ve spent hours searching for it and I’m really struggling now

Ben Scammell ?
I'd forgotton all about that clown and his Pipeline Card scheme.:rolleyes:

Several threads on Pistonheads about it, all people got back after enrolling was spam emails and he even managed to have a thread about it on Money Saving Expert called Pipedream Card because it all appeared to be a con.
He's started up some other similiar scheme which also asks for people to sign up, it's called Energising British Motorsport.
