Cause I hated the look of my Corsa B LS as standard then I caught the bug and did my C as well.

I was really bored at work one day so I phoned Pete @ PVD up and said im going to respray D5 and get my interior retrimmed. So I went down the bank sorted out the money and then started to sort out colours etc and then popped down to Carisma. Thats pretty much how that started. C4RSA was my inspiration though

This'll probably sound naff but I like it when people turn around and look at your car in approval makes all the hard work worth it.

My favourite comment was when I was stuck in traffic with my little brother in the car and a coach driver signalled to my brother to open the window and the coach driver said "Is that a special edition"

Corsa B was my first car and i loved it, after a few months of owning it my best mate bought one and my other mate had a nova which he was trying to do up, so i copied him using my own preferences making my 1st look how i wanted it to.
CS had alot of influence though

Had a fiesta as my first car, D reg 1.1L. It already had XR2 bumpers and wheels when I got it, aswell as a fiesta sport paint job. Didn't do anything to that really, beesting aerial and stereo that was it. Then I got the RST, decided it wasn't fast enough and it went from there. Never been one for styling mods, if it doesn't look good standard then I'm not interested.

my dad used to race and stopped a few years before i got my lisence, then when i got my lisence he bought a mgb roadster and we turned it into a hill climber with a 2.0ltrs engine in it, did all the work between us, body work, engine suspension, you name it, was a shed when we got it, got a few pics of it somewhere! and then i decided to give it aago on my mk3 astra, that got written off and then i got the corsa!
