i applaud you for campaigning a corsa, i have no doubt there will be some negative comments from some members of AO....

I used to be in the Vauxhall scene, billing and PVS were regular shows in my calendar

I've managed to blow 10k on a Mk2 cavalier before now and turn it into a show winner......

i'm looking at the spider currently with a view to really going to town on it, again there's at least 5 to 7K that could be spent in getting it looking really smart...and if i really wanted to push the boat out i could take that to 10K easy....funds permitting

It's not what I'd do with £15,000 but I guess what I'd do with it isn't what you'd do either.

Your car, your life, your money. If it makes you happy, what anyone else thinks is largely irrelevant.

I've always thought of the Corsa as something 17 yearolds and grannies drive and not something to get particularly excited about

15k is a lot to have spent but its your money to do what you want with :)

Hopefully you'll see the error of your ways now you have the Alfa :p

ye sorry, not too good at loading up pics

i never planned on spending £15k, it only started with a £4k budget, but ideas spiralled out of control as they usually do...

as for the let, id love one if i had the money, but this car is all show, no go, so its never going to go over 30mph anymore anyway, plus, id have to change the bonnet as my custom bonnet wouldnt house the engine

its easy to get carried away wirth cost when ideas keep changing, something ive been working on for a few yrs after i crashed it and went into the back of a van, completely rebuilt the front end

im looking forward to playing with the gtv, although, ive had it 2 weeks and only had problems already lol
