Hi every one . I have just bought as a fun spare car an Astra Benetone Mk3 convertable L reg. 2 lt 8 valve. Cost me £500 with 6 months mot. I purchased this on the rebound after missing out on a golf convertable on ebay. Now I have been told it may not be a mark 3 but a late mark 2. How can I tell? A couple of rips on electric roof edges but otherwise ok. As I am now retired I plan to become a oldboy racer. Quoted £240 Fully comp with recovery and £300 excess. No tonnie cover do I need one.
Will put a few quid into it to bring up to scratch.
Have I wasted my money?
