The first essential needed to begin your Charvamobile is a car. Charvas don't just go for any car though, it must meet certain specifications first.
The car needs to be sporty in shape.
The car needs to be a bright colour. (Although it can be re-sprayed)
Usual recommendations are Ford Fiesta, Ford Escort, Vauxhall Astra, etc.
Next comes the blacking. You must black out all windows, lights, mirrors, and any other bits of glass on the car. Special darkened glass can be purchased for this, but if money is a problem, a black permanent marker - available at most stationary shops - will do the job.
Exterior decor is the next step. Big stickers promoting "Kenwood", "Max Power", No Fear", "On A Mission", and other clever phrases are popular among the Charvas. These can be placed: in the back window; along the top of the frond windscreen; along the side of the car; and accross the bonnet.
If the car does not come equipped with a spoiler and body kit, then this is an essential next purchase.
Finally the "music". A Kenwood or similar system is ideal for the charva car. The music chosen must have a repetitive drum and bassline, with little or no lyrics, and shouts of "Bassgenerator" and "Hardcore" throught the "song".



I found this while browsing for badly modified cars. I thought it was highly amusing :laugh:

Reminds me of the cars in the Ali G film lol. I don't like Renault 5's anyway so that doesn't appeal to me, but it looks like it's done relatively well, just not to my taste. The other car are horrendous, makes me cringe thinking about them. And Lyds there's nothing wrong with Kenwood stuff ;) At least I'm fairly impressed with my Kenwood head unit :p

The pic of that Escort reminds me, theres one in the town near me thats got front and rear bumpers that stick out a mile beyond the car, must get some pics of that as it looks so bad, we all think "Wtf?" when it drives past lol.

Yeah I know what you mean, Corsas are known to be chav cars, it's all just stereotypical. I think saxos are more chavvy though lol.

Well I like the look of them, but wouldn't get one, I've been told they have a habit of falling apart :laugh:

Eeek. Not good. I wouldn't get one personally. Hooked to the Corsa now. Thinking of buying a Corsa C next year. But I really really want a 2.0 Corsa b conversion. I wouldn't be able to handle the BHP lol :laugh:

I'd love a 2.0 conversion, but I'm thinking it would cost too much, although my mate reckons he knows someone who will do it for about £600, if thats the case I'll seriously look into it! :D And I'm sure you could handle the power, you don't have to drive with your foot to the floor all the time ;)

Hehe I was thinking of buying one of ebay, with all the receipts etc. Want to be sure the conversion has been done correctly. Seriously tempted with a Corsa C though, but the thought of selling my B makes me sad :eek:
