    Got the Coupe and the VX220 out together.

    A rare occasion to get my old Turbo out alongside the VX together so we took advantage of the situation went for a little shoot




    Only two pics for now as theres a lot going on with the VX220 and im awaiting spacers and other bits to get her stanced properly before a proper night shoot overlooking the bright lights of Cardiff Bay

    The astras looking cleaner than ever since its respray, the engines a little grubby now but my mate uses it to drive not to look pretty lol Still miss the car dearly even with a VX220 sat outside!!

    Very nice motors, wasn't massively keen on the interior from close up pics ive seen, looked a bit ott but from a distance and with the white wheels and grille it looks amazing.

    If you ever sell the 220 please get in touch with me!!

    I've never looked at these motors and thought 'poofy'
    Thanks for the kind words

    Ian the Vee grill isn't white, it was going white but the front clams going custom after the winter months so no point in potching with it now as it will be gone all together

    Should imagine it will be up for sale this time next year knowing me I fancy something special next!
