Welcome to One Car Garage, in which we choose a manufacturer or class of vehicle, and you decide choose single vehicle (no matter how old, no matter how exclusive) to live with for the rest of your life. This is your only vehicle, and all expenses are paid for, including price of entry, insurance, gas, etc.

Today I'll do something fun (or boring, cheaty, hard, etc.) and make you choose one car from the plethora of cars made by any Welsh car manufacturer (that's the fun/boring) part). But today we have a twist, and that is that I'll allow modifications when it comes to drivetrain, suspension and other bits and bobs, the only criteria is that the part MUST come from the same manufacturer that the original engine came from, and it must be somewhat feasible to actually fit said parts in the car you choose (that's the hard/cheaty part).

I'll take the Gilbern Invader MkIII, but I'll swap the 3.0 litre essex V6 and it's 4-speed transmisson for a Ford YBD engine (from the Sierra RS500) with the 5-speed MT75 Borg Warner, I'd also fit the suspension from a Sierra Cossie. I'll also convert the bugger to a LHD. The Invader MkIII looks like this.

But I'll take mine in green, like this MkII.

So, come on gals and boys, what Welsh car would YOU have, and what engine etc would you like.

PS. I KNOW this is rather silly, and many of you have seen me post this car a googolplex of times before. And I'm SO sorry, but I just HAD to do this.

PPS. I've got something better planned for next time, but I'm having a hard time with the words.
