Nice one! You have a genuine Vauxhall accessory on there too. On the kicker-panel card in the passenger footwell - the little map pocket thing.

i thought everyone had those map pockets...

cant have been round the clock much, the pedals arnt worn flat yet, tho she does seem to be leaking a bit of oil there. have you checked under the carpets yet, i see a bit of what i think is water damage on the passenger side

what is that parked behind it in the 3rd picture, wouldnt happen to be another chevette would it?

lowbacks!!!...... you lucky begger

Tony! Looking fantastic mate, wish mine was as tidy as yours. See what you mean about identical cars, obviously came off the line in the same batch(!). At least your paint shines up to a proper polish, mine ends up a little less faded. Look forward to mine looking as good as yours mate. Wonderful to see another orange saloon on the road.

No that should be the other way round! If you have to build a rally car do it with a saloon, pref a 4dr as they're more common. We need to keep as many hatches un-wrecked as possible. They'll be a dying breed in standard form before long. Besides which you won't need to turret your saloon so it'll be closer to standard that a hatch would.

I'm pretty sure I've seen more 4-door saloons about than I have 2 doors. It'd be interesting to know the production figures for them. There was no need for that really was there Doive... just 'cos you like saloons better :wink: Image

4 doors weigh a lot more so you wouldnt want to rall yhtem in space of a 2 door.
when all else fails, rivets, cable ties and bodge tape will see you through

That's a fair point but then everyone seems to be intent on rallying heavier hatches which have to be turreted where a 2-door would be more appropriate so it doesn't seem to bother people :wink:
