    theres no big secret mate just email dougie with pics and a spec list and if it's good enough you'll get a feature simple really, regarding cover car's i think that all the staff have a meeting and decide jointly iirc.

    The right car is the simple answer, if it dont fit in with the "times" you have no chance...

    I asked them at Billing 2 years ago and they said mine wasn't really 'finished' enough as they like to have a bit of everything like engine work, interior mods, stereo etc etc.

    A year and a half later when I can pretty much say my car is finished I yestsent an email with a brief spec and a few pictures (Like it ask's for in the mag) and a few weeks later I had an email asking for a bit more info.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    Mines flown into Fast Car to be honest, i didnt even have to ask them - i got asked. But with Total Vauxhall its seems a completley different story. I sent them pics of my car at a show and they emailed me back asking about a mates astra van parked next to mine in one of the shots lol

    I've done a fair bit of work since so im planning on trying again. I get the idea Total Vaux is more a performance based mag, so with no engine mods i reckon people will struggle. As said above they seem to want every aspect covered, engine styling interior etc. Im hoping i have all that covered with mine now.

    If it is IMO its more than worthy!

    Back in the Vauxhall fold - Astra Turbo & '82 Merc sadly missed, Two VX220's should keep me happy though

    As above really... it needs to be a complete package - have a good combination of tasteful modifications and some nice / original touches that make it stand out from everything else in the scene.

    i.e. Rick Drapers Nova - by far one of the best / most complete Nova's since Brett Warburtons last incarnation.
    Dave Dempsey's Mk4 - a nice tidy car, with some cool touches (wheels!!) and a decent powerplant - it makes Dougie happy!

    Aye thats mine.



    But no, its worthy of getting a feature.


    Even with the GSi bumper. it wasn't worthy - not enough engine power.


    IGNORE THE PHOTOSHOPPED WHEELS, its just a general idea of how she would have looked, i smashed the GSi front before i got the signa's fitted
