    ASTRA 1.4 (first proper project)

    This might seem like a downgrade, and I suppose it is having owned 2 sri 2.0's and a coupe turbo, but, personaly I like the thought of a cheaper project, no more Z20LET nightmares, just simple taseful modding and see where it takes me.
    So I bought this: £550, rusty, been hit, drives terribly (needs plugs and coilpack I think) it's had new headgasket valves, but I love it! Part of the reason being is that my grandad was a vx foreman, he's dead now, but a guy that worked for him, did the work on this car to get it running, so thats probably as close as I'll get to him now, he died in 92 and left is a mk3 1.4 si in flame red.

    Here's the pic's as she sits after buying.

    More pics to follow, but you get an idea of how poorly this car has been treated and it's worse in reaility, the pics make it look suprising good!

    Taxing it tomorrow, and going to buy some std light for her!
