And now, a story

Basically this was my very first car, it was purchased for me by my parents back in the day from new and I used it to get to college, see friends and go to shows. Started its life as a Corsa C LIFE model which basically is a 1ltr 12v engine with toys such as electrics, colourful seats, air conditioning and a CD player.

While I was driving it I did a couple of tasteful modifications, tinted windows, tinted side reps, dark/sxi rear lights, and a few alpine bits to bring joy to my ears inside

When the Red 2ltr sleeper was finally born in a barn like baby Jesus I decided to give away my black car to my sister, who put in pink Hello Kittay seat covers and generally abuse the fuck out of it. She ended up getting t bar'd by a Ford Fiesta on a trip to Lakeside of all places, the other drive drove off so she was left to deal with it.

Which brings us up to now, my sister managed to get a new VW Polo and this car was left in the yard to be sold, I couldn't resist but offer my parents a cheeky amount for it and take it off their hands.

Enjoy the thread.

How I got her:




Removing inside panels ready to go to bodyshop:




'The Dent'






Plans:

Get bodywork to a good standard
Put private plate on
Engine removal and replacement with a C20LET
Engine bay modification
Revamp the interior with OEM parts
Rag it

SXi+ half leather seats I think, also got the backs. Just need to find some suitable doorcards

Think they look quite nice for factory seats, comfy too
