Post subject:  Clan Crusader! (I know, I know)

Some of you know I was on the search for either another Porsche 924 or a Clan Crusader, but in my heart of hearts I didn’t really think I’d find a decent example of the latter so I didn’t expect to be posting this.

One of the reasons I wanted another 924 was because I really enjoy being part of this club, so Ed Myland has assured me that - in order to continue to partake in club activities - my Clan Crusader will be welcome here.

There are similarities between the two cars that (at least in my head) made them both a car I’ve been fascinated by since being a young petrolhead. But as most of those are poetic at best, I’ll keep them to myself and show you the car.

It’s a ‘71, with the right oily bits and enough character to charm a brick.

Also, it’s brown. :lol:

You would never think it was designed by ex Lotus employees, styling is not it's strong point :sad:

I'm not sure styling has always been Lotus's strong point for all their cars...

I love this thing Paul. That engine is still an absolute gem and unlike my Imp, it's not going to turn to dust before your very eyes.

You know I'm a fan of all things Imp powered, and a plastic pig in light poo brown is really cool
Enjoy it, they are an absolute hoot to drive

this is the one I rallied

I’m new to Imp stuff - but so far so good. I’ve always liked the mini GT styling of the Crusader.

Thanks for not kicking me out for lack of 924’ness. :lol:

Must be something in the name - I have two 924s and two Clans in my collection. Here is my rally Clan.

My first reaction was that is hideous, and its brown. :lol:

But its growing on me, unusual looking car, I can see the attraction. I don't think I have seen one before.

I've always thought Clans to be great looking cars

Some history here for those who aren't aware of these superb little cars:
