    will check my diary. I have booked a number of shows events with MK1OC and also rally alot so never have many weekends free.

    one of my mates from the MK1OC has a VXR lump in his china blue 4 door mk1, he blew away the regal 360bhp corsa on saturday lol, the commentator was saying the guy in the slower car has good reaction times slower car my arse lol.

    http://www.mk1oc.com/forum/viewtopic...11395&start=15

    not what you expect to find in a china blue 4door lol

    I like Mk3's always wanted a GSI but never ever got there yet lol, got 5 Mk1s in various states of repair, red, white and black GTE's (just missing a silver one) a black SR and a Van (which i intend to LET) also have 2 novas and two chevettes and a tigra so you could say vauxhalls in my blood lol.

    will try and get down to the show and perhaps bring along a couple of other MK1s, i rally at Smeartharpe like the venue.

    havin vauxhalls in your blood isnt a bad thing mate!!
    i dont want anythin else but vauxhall blood, love vauxhalls! i love blitzin evo's scooby's etc they never expect to be ruin by a vauxhall, ganted shes not perfect yet, but once i've finished her she'll be epic, i'd buy another astra to work on etc but all my moneys goin into the vxr the plans are pretty long n at the mo doesnt look like it but i've done a fair bit, but plenty in the pipeline :P
    the commentator would kiss regals ass! in all fairness think everyone would, i remember when they we a tiny company when me n my dad modded up a vectra, huge now, but i dunno which company is most relible regal, courtney, lmf etc must admit bought loads from em for me mk3, n got a couple things for the vxr,
    hopefully see you there be nice to meet you other than flyin down the m4 with my showplate up hahahaha!
