Happened a few times now...

Latest about 5 mins ago, looked like some old couple in a Focus... slowed right down gawping down my driveway at the Corsa...

Ok so it has like half an engine, stripped out, not going anywhere! But still, why do people do it??

Plus its not like you can see the engine either, as its the rear end which is facing the road... Only thing with it is I have taken the number plates off...

Before the Nova was garaged and sat under the porch (big porch) people would drive down our cul-de-sac slow down on the way in to look at the car, then on their way out slow down and stare again.

Normally idiots wanting to see if anything was avaliable for stealing.

Had someone walk into my garage when the Corsa C was being kitted, I rolled out from underneath the car and some young kiddy was stood there I was like WTF

Turns out he had a Corsa C and wondered what I was doing and was nice enough but still STOP INVADING MY SPACE!!!!

I can confirm this, if you want to walk up eds drive a stop for a drink and somthing to eat is advisable when around halfway up

i get the odd person looking in mine, but thats usually because there are no rear seats and they wonder/ask why...
apart from that "its just another corsa with alloys"

I get people knocking on my door asking about the car! most are genuinely interested though. doesnt bother me as I get a lot of work from it, I am known as the local mechanic now.
