He has been working on this car for 30 days straight and nearly finished it (interior didn't arrive). On the way to the show he popped both front tyres, came on flatbed eventually.

I reckon it's a Toyota Starlet turbo engine...that's the TMIC you can see there...that's probably one of the most common engine conversions down here because it fits a clubman with (relatively) little modifications to the firewall etc...

That's a nasty hood-scoop he's rockin'...

Yup. It's for sale. The video is actually upon request from a potential buyer. I REALLY hope a fellow enthusiast goes and grabs it because it's a gem. The owner is a great guy, too. It's selling for around $15k. It's a STEAL at that price if you can afford it.

Well... the Green Monster is sold to a fellow in Southern California. Keep a sharp eye out for it.
