    Question Pineapple GSi kit "MV6" badged mk3 A1 sunday

    as above, in the foul rainy wet weather, at about 12.30(ish) going southbound on the A1 through north yorkshire to join in the yorkshire region AOC meet I passed an interesting mk3 which was pootling along at a sedate pace in the slow lane. It had a GSi kit, in pineapple yellow, but the badging on the back said Astra MV6 A mysterious rare model or (as I'm more inclined to assume) just a modified custom badged one (like mine!) The driver didn't seem to notice my mk3 passing him which is a shame as I was ready to give a cheerful smile and wave.

    Anyone recognise this rather distinctive vehicle?

    MV6 is an Omega model, so probably a badge off that, maybe it has a V6 conversion though

    it certainly looks like it, can't remember the registration (it was pi$$ing down with rain at the time so I was trying to concentrate on the road and not let tasty astras distract me too much ) but wouldn't know if it had the calibra 5 stud alloys on or not as it was moving at the time

    Where's that one from Kev? the bloke driving it looked quite heavily built with very close cropped or shaven hair.

    oh and I dunno if it "shifts a bit" (although I imagine it could) as he was driving very, very carefully (about the same speed as the lorries, in the slow lane) Guess with something that nice he's cautious of giving it stick at speed in inches of rainwater and a rainstorm causing poos visibility.

    oh ok on mk3 not on AOC. Haven't been on mk3oc for quite a while. I haven't seen it in the area before (I'm from county Durham, but it was a big bloke driving it at the time, there appeared to be a couple of passengers too though.
