    Almost sad ending to a 'classic'

    Oh ok its not a classic but for its time this was an all out project that got a lot of media attention. Now it sits very quietly in a dark corner of a quiet museum.






    Spacers anyone??



    Shame..lol

    IIRC the engine was a worked Zlet. No idea if its still in there.

    Has the full interior still inc the large JVC plasma screen in the back with the swivel seats.

    I agree but its not about you liking it. Project Slam was about when modding a Mk4 Astra was a reasonably new thing, IIRC M1GSt may have been on the road when it was started..lol. God knows how much was spent on it, and there it is hiding away..lol.
