This is one for someone who knows something about cars, with an impressive upgrade to an old Rover. 

The owner takes a free car and puts £1,000 worth of engine. This is an impressive engine, and as you will find out this engine is taken from a Rolls-Royce Meteor. Thats a tank. From the Second World War. This engine is so old and so important that the MOD has still restricted access to the manual. All the power is in the lower gears, and they can make 150mpg, in a Rover SD1, in second gear. You have to see it to believe it.
