    My old cars and new one (56k beware!!)

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this but sure someone will move it if its wrong.
    First car - 2001 Corsa SXi 1.2 16v. Learnt to drive in this then drove it for 18months. The 02 plate one was my brothers SXi DTi but he now as an Astra GSi Turbo



    2003 Corsa SRi 1.4 16v. Great car which died when it was 10months old due to someone turning in from of me in Aberdeen






    1990 Fiesta XR2i. Had this as a second car, resprayed the boot and bonnet removing the lower boot spoiler and put a 1.8 zetec engine in it but sold it soon after.


    2004 Corsa SRi 1.4 16v. Insurance replacement for the old one which had sport pack 2 fitted. Again was a great car but now im 21 sold it for something quicker.




    1989 Nova SR. Bought this in Dec 2004 and work has never really stopped in it since then just doing things here and there but just mot'd it again. Was resprayed a few months ago but its not been polished yet. Used it 3 times at knockhill on hot hatch days and planning going again soon.









    2006 Astra VXR 2.0 16v Turbo. Picked this up last friday and not got any good pics yet. Looking forward to it being run but enjoying driving it anyway.

    not sure really as the astra only has 300 miles on the clock. Nova gives a false feeling of speed as its so raw to drive. Last time my brother had his gsi turbo up we were going to go out but never got round it it but i think it would be close. Nova was 189bhp but never had it running right so its back to around 160bhp now but still fun
