    Question Anyone know what's become of my old MK3 Astra Cabrio V6?

    I built this car about 8 years ago now. Was one of the first DIY V6 conversions in the country and at the time one of a very small number of V6 MK3 Astras. Infact, I knew of only 2 at the time. Chris Courtenay being one of them!

    V6 conversions in MK3 Astras are 10 a penny now. But still a decent engine.

    Those that know me know what the car looked like and those that don't, there are some photos below. Just wondering if anyone's seen it lately. I sold it to a friend about 3 and a half years ago who then sold it to a chap in Wales. Since then, I've never heard of what became of it.

    I had a private plate on it when I owned it, but it would be L***GBV now.

    Yup. I used to live near him. I practically forced him to buy those Omega MV6 wheels. They were the first set to appear on a MK4.

    LOL. I've not read it in years! I don't even know where the copy went. Probably at my parents house somewhere in the loft. Hope you're well.
