    My Corsa Redtop



    Just found this old gem on You Tube. Filmed on a private road - obviously - just one with lots of traffic.

    It's about 0-60+....

    The Corsa was 180 BHP then, ended up at 223. No my Digi Dash. I was well proud of that - but what a bodge.

    Ahhhh, memories.

    I had a Vauxhall Nova (K reg) in a custom Cosworth Blue which I fitted a red top engine in, taken from a Calibre. My god was that a quick little beast. Well for a 20 year old at the time it was pretty impressive. I will have to dig out some photos and post. Some serious work went into mine.
