You may have to take one for the Autoshite team and offer her a free service in exchange for the Astra ;) (dressed as a clown, in the back of a hearse, as suggested above)

Billy to the beige courtesy phone...


Aye Billy will be all over this. AND there’s an old Vauxhall Astra he might want to look at when he’s done.

Bought this about 15 years ago in Derby.
The story was, the mother went to the local car dealers after their old 40's car died and asked for the cheapest new car they had to replace it.
The 4 was delivered to the house, the son took one look at it and refused to ever drive it.
The next time it came out of the garage was when I got it, had 75 miles on the clock.
Did some of the work needed and sold it to a collector in Holland.

Dad had a 1974 burgundy R4.
He bought it from a dodgy back street garage in the early 80's with lots of filler and brush painted repairs.
It was more holes than car when it died at 12 years old.

In the mid-nineties my cousin lived in fashion-victim Brighton and ran an R4 as a daily

 

When I went in it the toe boards were open to the elements and exhaust fumes were in the cabin.  I went green.  :blink2:

 

When we stopped I looked underneath and that's when I found out something I never knew:  the exhaust on these finished in the front wheel well.
