Bought this back in August 08

One OLD lady owner (called Doris, lovely lass, gave me a biscuit when i viewed the car)

28k on the clock, FSH

No toys like, complete poverty spec, but it was in absolutely MINT condition, took a mate whose owned a few corsas along to view it and he said it was one of the best he'd ever seen

so heres the 'just-got-it-home' pic


Anyway, within approximately 38 seconds of owning it, a taxi driver decided he no longer needed to obey give way signs and drove straight into me:mad:



Now according to direct line that is a write-off:eek::confused:

long story short, I bought it back off them and had it all sorted for a fraction of the insurance money =] all was gravy :thumbs_up:

so this is it as it sits on my drive yesterday:





plenty more ideas in the pipeline so watch this space

comments appreciated =]

Looking good so far :).. Shame about the incident, did you get a good job done on the repair?.
Im not liking the interior carpet stuff though, abit errm.. tasteful lol.
I get that alot to be honest lol It's different, which is kind of what im going for... I find it's hard to make a corsa stand out these days, it's all cav slabs, red tops and depo headlights, which, dont get me wrong, are very nice... it's just they're so nice everyone gets them lol

so i decided to go for a bit 'euro/rat' style with it

oh and yeah the repair was top notch like really well done
