My other car is a.....

Post by tommysb » 17 May 2009 12:36 pm

Vauxhall Astra 1.7 tdi.

We bought this yesterday, to take us to portugal and back at the end of August. Originally bought my Volvo 340, it's more than up to the task, but too darn good to decorate 'creatively'.

And our team website:

Expect updates with gizmos...There should be a flashing LED dollar sign to go on the bonnet/in the window by the end of the week! Should be fun, this rally is what made me take the plunge and get into 340s after all :)

Nothing too exciting I'm afraid:

1996 Seat Toledo 1.9D, the wife mostly uses it
1998 Seat Toledo 1.9D, written off (sort of) due to a crash, slowly taking parts off, headed for scrapping soon.
1990 VW Passat 1.8, soon to be scrapped as well (MOT test troubles with the engine, can't be arsed to fix really)

Also trying to persuade a distant family friend to sell his 1988 Volvo 360 GL to me at some point, but it's going a bit slow...

Cheers mate. sm4

It's being massively neglected at the moment (even more so than usual), since i've had the Williams motor in the Volvo it hasn't seen the light of day and is locked away in my lockup. TBH i'm thinking of getting rid of it this Summer as i've had it about 7yrs and it need a lot of work. Plus i want a Trekker :D

So you had the Merc and the Trabby? Now you just have the Trabbie? I love them nice easy/simple engineering.

I've got to get me a matching set of hearing aid beige cars sometime :D

Pah! "Beige" ... sm2 Classic white and papyrus I'll have you know ;-)

Shame about the Merc, I'd had it for 9 years. A nice capitalist counterpart to the commie Trabi. But it's no good keeping a car you never drive ...
