My first car is the jeep, bought on 5th October 2002. I needed it for launching boats in Wales and intended to use it off road for pleasure whenever I got bored, turns out I got addicted modding it. People ask me "why?", my answer to them is "Why not?". I love that jeep and I'm never gonna let her die - just keep on rebuilding and modding. Got left the Astra last November as a second car, gladly accepted as the jeep wasn't likin the 500-1000 miles per month I was putting on it with the mods and the off roading.
Can't fault the Astra aside from being slow, it's economic, comfortable, nice drive, and best of all - the shockies are so good I can get a foot of air and aside from a few sparks from the exhaust I have no fears of shakin the car to bits
fantastic. Besides, I have a knack to makin things move fast, I can still beat off my mates in a 1.4 Fiesta and a 1.4 Clio RT... don't forget this Astra is a 1.7D - Non Turbo
