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.

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:
