    Salvage VXR update

    If any of you remember that burnt out vxr i found on bluecycle, here's a little update.



    Well, after bidding up to 6,000, i was outbid, it went for just over 7000.

    On a recent trip to sebs at vauxhall spares, luton i saw it there. The story so far is that it was used for a robbery. There was huge cartons of fags in the boot and it looks like the theifs set alight to the interior seat of the car where the fire started.

    so far its been stripped, new roof skin has been put on, and the whole rear which was mainly smoke damage has been da'd. Back seats are f**ked, front may survive, just the headrest needs replacing.

    So for all who thought the fire started from the fuse box in the rear, it wasnt. So lets all go and buy one!

    Not a bad price really, but you would have to totally replace the interior really I would imagine.

    Typical story?
    Welding the engine bay and the sound deadning caught alight against the bulkhead?

    some poor person will end up with it thinking they're getting a *one lady owner, only drove it to church on sundays* motor...

    ...then there will be a post on here in 2 months:

    Hey all! i'm new here...picked up my new Ardent Blue VXR today but everytime I get in all I can smell is Kebabs?

    ...at which point AS will empty.
    Regal tuned Astra VXR.
