    4x4 and RWD Astra's... how many do you know of?

    browsing t'interweb as usual and stumbled (nearly used the word "came" but that wouldn't quite be accurate, close though ) across this...














    firstly, it got me wondering what happened to it (the pics above are at least 15 months old) and secondly, it got me wondering how many other 4wd and indeed RWD astra's (of all marks) there are/have been...

    any ideas? pics, links and info would be cool please
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    There was the 1st MK3 GSi in Jersey that Courtenay built in the mid 90s.

    I'll find some pics, will have to be scans though!
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    Was also the first MK3 that courtenay put an F28 in as well from memory. 4x4 conversion cost £10k at the time. Cars still around now runs a C20XE in it, was looking a bit sorry for itself last pictures I seen of it.
