My name is Mike Suter, I live in South Shropshire.
I want to get into trialling with my pal James, we both have a keen intrest in all things oily, James is a mechanic and I dont mind waving a spanner at stuff either, I am a bit of a Volvo nut, my current one being a 240 estate that I have fitted a 940 turbo engine into.
We have done a bit of offroading in the past, mainly in a sj410 which I enjoyed a lot.
We were looking for a Volvo 340 for classic trialling (but anything will do) I found one with 9 months MOT and 6 months tax, the bloke said we could have it for £70 to cover the tax he just put on it but I think he's had better offer, I was thinking the 340 would be ideal with RWD, rear mounted gearbox and leaf springs on the back (being easily jack uppable) Michael suggests I ask here if anyone has a car for sale, our initial budget being around the £100 mark.
I was also wondering if it is within the rules to share the driving on the stages during the events as I'm sure we would both like to have a bash at it. (excuse the pun)
