Hello all! Steve aka Riskoe here to ramble on about my progress with the G. This will basically serve as a nice way to keep track of the progress I'm making with my car, and hopefully be a fun read for many of you! (I for one love reading these journals )
Anyway lets crack on! I own a 1999 T reg 3 door 1.6 16v Astra Sport in Polar sea blue.
I bought it last year back in July if memory serves correct for 1500 quid off a dealer. 2 previous owners but rather high mileage at 80,000. He assured me it was mostly motorway miles, however he also assured me the car color was called "Spectrum blue" so looking back on it he might of just been trying to get rid haha.
Anyways had no major problems with it yet, save for a few small ones which I will highlight later on.
So this is how I got it. Picked it up and immediately got some pics.
This shows the only real problem with the car, it had (and still has) a small dent in the boot, but this is getting fixed soon hopefully.
My old car on the left and my new beauty Goodbye 1990 Escort, hello Astra!
And a nice rotten numberplate This came off pretty much straight away.
