    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. :wub:

    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.

    Had a few Vauxhalls in my time.

    MK2 Astra 1.3
    MK2 Astra 1.6 SR
    MK2 Cavalier 2.0 SRi 130
    MK2 Astra 2.0 GTE 8V Cabrio (dont laugh)
    MK2 Astra 2.0 GTE 16V

    All were rusty some where, mainly around the arches:laugh:
    Decent cars at the time.

    Nova SRs/SRis/GTEs wer pretty sought after.

    My od Reno 5 used to eat Novas though :eyebrows:#
    aaaah, the good `ole days:yes:
