    Cool Another newbie!

    Hi, I'm Trav.Previously been into 80s and 90s Vauxhalls, recently sold my 260bhp Cavalier Turbo 4x4, and looking for something different.I fancied something smaller, as I now have a modern car to fulfil the daily driver role, and so the next toy car can be just that, a toy!I had a good think and I just cannot currently think of a better option for what I am after than a nice Williams, which brings me here.....So you will most likely find me lurking about, reading up on here for a while, until I find the one I want!

    As promised:






    Unfortunately it ended up stripped - the guy that bought it decided it was worth more in bits! I expect the engine is now in a corsa or some such deathtrap. 269bhp, 320lb/ft will tear a corsa to pieces! Hell, it used to spin all 4 wheels with ease in the Cav!

    Anyway, hopefully soon a Williams Clio will be providing my kicks!

    welcome over fella, nice old vauxshit barge there

    hope the search for a decent Williams goes well, any questions etc you need answering slap them up and there's more than likely one of us 'orrible lot who'll, just like smarties, have the answer!

    It was clean considering the use it got, it did polish up well.

    I was putting 20psi+ through the standard bottom end, putting 25-30k miles a year on it and it never put a foot wrong. Give it an oil change every 5k and it just kept going! As happy cruising at 80mph in 6th as it was embarrassing Porsches on a generic A road. I like the sleeper aspect of it as nobody expects a Cavalier to be that quick! I had it for almost 3 years and it had 189k on the clocks when I sold it!

    The problem was the underside getting crusty, as I'm sure you Clio owners will be able to relate to!

    Onwards and upwards!
