New member, new c3 on order!


Hi folks, just wanted to introduce myself, Im Tim, from Luton ( I know), and Just secured my first c3 after years of dreaming of one.
The car in question is a 74 coupe, thats been fully restored. Full body strip, paint, new interior, full engine and trans overhaul, running just over 400hp.
I originally wanted a project, but thought Id start with a good one, and maybe an early c3 project later.
Ive literally bought this car a few hours ago, so wont see it for a while yet.

Hi Tim

Welcome to the club and, to C3 ownership! Looks a nice car in an interesting colour combo. They could have cleaned that engine for the photos though! Laughing Laughing Very smart.

That wait for its arrival will be plenty of time to receive the all important CCCUK sticker! Thumbs up

I like the colour - very 1970's yet modern too!

Cheers guys, its been a steep learning curve over the last month since taking buying one seriously. Really looking forward to going to a few meets and shows with it later in the year.
Its the original dark brown, 968.

Welcome to the Club Tim.

The car looks great. Restored and with a rebuilt and uprated engine, it should go well too. What more could one want!!
