Hi, New to the site so thought i would say hello to everyone and a little introduction about me.
I'm knocking on a bit now, my first car was a MK2 astra 1.2 on a "b" plate, forget what i paid for it now but it was a great car to learn in, but like many, power and speed was what i wanted.
a year or so later and after saving i bought a MK2 astra GTE 16v in "aubergine" i think that was what they called the colour! This was the ultimate car for me, it was all about nova's and calibra's then as well as the GTE.
I had the rear arches repaired as they were a bit rough and a complete respray in the original colour and some colour coding. Kept it like this for the rest of its days until it went bang big time!!!
in the end i sold it and kick my self now for £100!
Then i bought a MK3 golf GTI 16v which i owned for 10 years, in that time i found the love of bikes! for the last 7 years i have been riding sports bikes, Ninja's Tl1000r GSXR-750 and a GSXR - 1000. Time to slow down a bit and now ride a big matt black Harley with straight through pipe's....nice.
Sold the golf recently and have been looking round for cars, always liked astras, but the escort van i have is also on its way out, so have decded to get a MK4 astra van and a run around for the missus, dont want to go over the top with mods, so now on the look out for a van. Looked through some of pics on here and there are some very nice ones on here...well done!
Not too worried about performance these days, and to be honest theres nothing quite like pinning a gixer 1000 for speed and the rush that for me cannot really compare.
Any how sorry for going on just wanted to say hi, thanks for reading, looking forward to my project and looking round the site.....
