1987, a milestone in my development.
I passed my driving test (first time) and shortly after acquired my
first car. A W reg Talbot Solara SX. Not a great car to look at but the
refinements were lovely. Electric windows, cruise control, trip
computer, headlamp washers. A fully stocked motor by all accounts. Far
too good for some spotty herbert to be driving around in. It would have
still been a lovely motor to this day no doubt had I not decided to mod
it in some very wierd and wonderful ways. What the hell was I
Heres the list of things I did to
Peco twin exhaust
Two Mk III Capri
indicators behind the radiator grille. (Front Cruise lights)
perforated aluminium grill which also covered headlights. Sprayed with
black kevlar paint
incorporating a 12' high one piece tank whip ariel
Lights on my mud
cats eyes prized out of the road and placed in my rear bumper.
Needless to say,
very few pics still exist of this monstrosity.
