    New Astra in the Area

    Hi All,

    Just want to say Hi and introduce myself as I picked up a Mk2 SXi at the weekend.

    Based up north of the area between Lincoln & Scunthorpe and planning to use the Astra as a Daily commuter that'll use considerably less Juice than my Carlton currently does!

    Used to being around old Vaux/Opels. Had probably about 50 over the last 12 years or so. Currently got five for keeps as well as the camper van and a few spares/donors too.

    Wasn't looking for an Old Astra or even a Vaux for a daily, but meh... It was there and pretty tidy.

    Is there anything that goes on up this way meets wise? I do try and get out to shows etc, but Work this years put the stops on that with working away so much.

    Will get a couple of pics of Bex up when I get the chance

    In answer to your question, we do arrange meets, myself and jimmyrid are currently in the process of organising something out your way. If you have any suggestions/ideas as to a location of a meet then please do get in touch.

    Hi, thanks for the welcome!

    One place I'd say was worth mentioning as a possible pub meety is the Pride of Lincoln. I'm often there with the Manta Club anyway. Food's pretty decent, beer, decent size car park and accessible.

    They're also used to Car Clubs which is good.

    Not sure there's a whole lot of shows up this way, many a run to Skeg-vegas would be a good un one weekend!

    Old timer...? Worringly its the second newest car in the fleet!!! But that's cos I tend to prefer RWDers if I'm honest.

    Right first off, here's a couple of BEX the Astra. I'll be getting some more when I get the chance. These are from the seller (so sorry for the pic size), but she's still looking good as ever...










    And the others...
    First up my current daily drive, the Carlton Diamond...


    Opel Monza...

    Manta hatchback... As it used to be...

    And as he is now. Sporting an Omega V6 engine & box among other things. Not quite finished yet...


    Manta A


    Opel GT as seen at my brothers wedding

    And Atilla. Yes its a Marina Camper van and no it doesn't really fit with the others but fancied something a bit different and doing a bit of a p*ss take... Bit of a marmite thing but it certainly turns heads!!!

    Thats about it for road cars. Also got a Spares Monza, two spares Carltons and a Calibra Turbo donor at the moment. Space is becoming a bit of an issue...
