Re: Original Wild Willy

That takes me back. My second car was a Willy's wheeler , the Honda city turbo , I had a lot of fun with that car , later in its life I converted it to a wild willy

Didn't think this was that sort of forum :lol:

Re: Mardave Meteor Help required

Hi and welcome to the forum . I'll start with the obvious , yes you will need tyres , 30 year old rubber won't last 5min , next I'd replace all the bearings that you can with new ones .
