Nah, they nicked him for attempted hitch-hiking! 8)

Car`s coming on nicely Tony......Enjoy the twinnies matey, every Chevette should have a pair!!!!!
Get a cold air feed pipe or 2..... on a cold, crisp morning/evening, it will go even better.

Btw, What`s the white U shaped pipe?, is it a breather thingy?

Are you taking the piss?! Henna red 4 door Chevette, now on rostyles..... and as if that wasn't bad enough, then I spot an e28 5 series parked in front of it!!

A good choice if I may say so. Do you have any more pictures of it?

What does it drive like? I was speaking to the owner of an absolute mint 520i in Hexham yesterday, he was saying his was a nice car to drive, cruised really well but had very little power for overtaking etc. I know with mine it's not exactly lightning fast, but has plenty of torque for overtaking - flex the right foot, kickdown, move out and I'm past as quick as a flash. But the last car with the switchable auto was just obscene.

I found out the other day why it's quite a slow car. I tried pushing mine backwards 6 feet because I couldn't be arsed starting it up, and almost gave myself a hernia. My word, it's a heavy car! But then it's a very strong shell, as I proved with the last one. So what's the spec of yours then? 520i or a Lux model? Does it have the TRX metric wheels? And is the bodykit a dealer fit option, or something fitted recently?

I'm going to bring both my cars down to yours sometime, give your neighbours something to think about.

:shock: :shock: :shock:

Any reason?! There would have to be something seriously wrong to scrap an e28, they tend to go on forever. My last car was 20 years old, and after a polish she genuinely looked like brand new. The current one, even though there is almost 200k on the clock, could pass for a new car when cleaned up and polished. My engine is a bit tappety, but that's mainly because two of the cam lobes are almost circular! She still runs well though.

If she is saveable I'm fairly sure I could find you a buyer.
