    I havent ruled out just buying a cheapy stock mk1 to do the trip in either.

    I'm not totally out yet.

    Trying to pull out all the stops to at least get the standard 2 on the road. Not exactly what I want to be driving but want the break and fancy the drive. I just need to find time to do it. Sourced an engine for it, need to find the time to get it to the unit and fit it around doing other work on other peoples cars and holding down my main job.

    I need to get the car done and running for a couple of weeks (just to make sure this engine is good) before I'll be happy to take it cross Eurpope but hopefully will get there.


    There is just no way I can do the trip in a Fiesta, it just won't be right. If I hadn't have had the bad luck with the last engine I'd be able to say I'd go. I can't afford to buy another already working mk1 to take instead and have no space for another one. I'm gutted I'm in this situation but its all been beyond my control.

    I may have another option now as well. my missus is looking into if she can afford to do brutalball as well now. Shes gonna see how putting me on her insurance would work out and how much extra she has to work to be able to afford the trip.

    Its an option but its awkward. I hardly see her as it is and extra hours means I might get to see her maybe 1 or 2 days a month until brutal ball. Tis an option we are considering tho.

    See not dropping out just exhausting all options. Why do I have to have 2 broken 2's that are eating my money and time :(
