Well lads a few of u already know me but for those who don't i'm Nathan.. So when i first joined the site i put a thread up of my black Corsa which is now sold on but since then I was working and saving hard to buy something old school

So my cousin picked this up from London a couple of years ago and since he owned it he carried out a full respray, speedlines and a upgraded suspension..

Pictures don't look great due to a crappy Nikon camera

Hope use like

The day I got her:




After this I moved her of to a mushroom shed and gave he a good wash and polish
