Thought I would write a little article of the history of my Corsa (sold now)

Started off as a standard 1.4 16v Corsa Sport P reg.

This is not a picture of my car, just found a picture off the net of an almost standard Sport



First came the body kit and alloys, all paintwork looking brand new.




Then decided to spray all the interior, and go for the black and silver theme.



I then thought it was time for some ICE. So out came my DIY skills and make my custom door builds and boot build, along with a lot of money spent on ICE equipment







The next stage was to change the red rear lights and change them to the MHW smoked ones:



Next was a custom leather re-trim, which was one of the best mods on the car IMO






Now with nothing else to modify I thought I needed more power. So then came the 2.0 16v redtop, with V6 brakes. Also decided to add some more BHP by port and polishing the head, power-boost valve, de-cat.







The final stage was to get it featured. Total Vauxhall got in touch at Trax, and came down to do the photo shoot:







Pictures from the Mag:





Now it was time to move on and sell the car:



Then the new arrival came along to replace the corsa:

cheers for the comments guys.

But you do have to remember this car was moddified for the time when kits were in. When the combat 2 first came out i ordered it is about 3/4 years back. I was planning on putting GSi kit etc on, but decided to sell and move on a year ago.

STEvieXE - still with the same g/f mate

Didn't fancy yours and your bird's name on the seats then?

Very nice all the same - black cars with kits don't look too bad.
