  • My toy - Non VXR content

    For those that don't know me, i don't drive a VXR. I test drove an Astra VXR and loved the car, didn't like the sit ON seat driving position, far too high for me.

    So i after talking to Steady Eddie on Sunday, i decided you may want to see pictures of what i bought instead.





    I have recently had to sort out a "small" issue of crank movement. Thead HERE
    Which ment

    and


    Replaced the shells, bearings and crank, also fitted uprated timing chains and spruced the block up etc.

    It looked like this last weekend.




    Do i regret not buying a VXR, not really no.

                  Lotus Carlton/Omega is on my "dream car list" for weekends with also BMW 8 series, just not sure when I will be able to afford one

                            all these years on and the Lotus Carlton still looks modern and fresh.
                            awesome piece of kit.
