pretty cool...

Now that's different! You've given me a new view of 123 wagons - I always pictured them parked next to the Range Rover driven by a stuffy Hampshire couple! My stereotype has been shattered!

Is the 3.8 litre from a 380SEL? Have you taken back seats out to fit hydraulic equipment (just noticed it doesn't have door handles)?

Funny you should be a Brummy - my mother's from Castle Bromwich and when I saw your post I was listening to 'The Streets'!

my first impression of the car was a full on grandad car, thats why i chose it!! just to be different. the hydro's are all fitted in the rear just inside the tailgate, so i didn't have to remove the back seats. that left me enough room to fit 2x 12" nexus barracuda subs, 6x9's and a directed 650 5 channel amp. the interior is not standard either. i binned the bouncy merc seats in favour of a dark grey leather set from a rover 820 turbo. I have smoothed the tailgate, numberplate is now under my bumper. the rear door handles were shave for security purposes(kept leavin them unlocked) they still open from the inside. the engine is from a 380se. just about dropped straight in, engine mount mods only!!
