  • Rocky's Arden Blue Astra VXR

    Well guys after all the questions and nagging for about year ....... about what spec i got to get, iam well happy well more than happy on what i got this is where the story starts...........

    traveled up with my dad to Warrington sunday 12pm to final buy the astra vxr didnt get up there till 5pm due to really bad weather + bad traffic in birmingham hate going through there.

    Anyhow got to warrington to meet matthew aka ta5mhu at his house (private deal) had my eye on this car for while was in the for sale section on here, it was also spotted too,

    was very happy what i saw, also saw his next car which was a black Monaro which was a beast of car, a bit later we then sorted the deal out.
    then i started the big journey home around 5pm, hit more bad weather and traffic outside birmingham must had everything thrown at me sleet rain,hailstones the lot but didnt stop the vxr got home in the end by 10:15pm.

    i was feeling like a million bucks driving it home even with bad weather the vxr just wants to go all the time ha ha plus i had the vxr grin all the way home was very happy chappy, so couldnt take any pics lastnight cause of weather, havent had chance to take any only some after work today in the dark so sorry for that but there be much better pics added to my post on friday when i cleaned her as she is a tad stinking at mo after doing 195 miles back to south wales!!!

    best moment was seeing my mates faces in work when i drove in this morning i always remember that cause they didnt know sod all about it
