chanu Good job done! thought its an original Victa. Original wheel caps would make it look complete. Can you also post some pictures of the interiors. 19th August 2009
nitrous Thanks yaejay. Absence of power steering and stiff suspension makes this quite predictable. Had a few moments in it(of course), but always managed to get it back to control. This babe's the one I learnt to drive in AND do the driving license test in. Very very sentimental for me. 5th August 2009
YaeJay Dear Nitrous, I suspect you grew up with this one. Or liked this one best while you were very young ( in years, not knowledge). I have always been curious about the SUMO. I've known a dear Mangloorian, Extremely passionate about cars, say the SUMO was the best set of wheels he ever bought ('tortoise coil', (flash back), the early 90z). I haven't driven it a lot, felt it to be torquey,in lower gears, high CG, ( normal) but space, I still don't think anything can beat it on that! The worst thing, I truly believe to happen to a SUMO is taxi operators finding a use for it. They let guy's who are just out of bullock carts to take control of a SUMO. Result, turn turtle sumo's, bad rep and that's it. As I've said before, I have been a non member for quite sometime, and I know most of the best out here. All I can say is, If Nitrous LOVES(?) a SUMO, there has to be a very good reason! :)
Nirtous, I am sure it would have given you plenty of satisfaction on the rebuild!

P.S: (to all t
