    Default Astravan

    Been thinking of how i need a more economical car for getting to work and also keep seeing stunning looking modded mk4 astravans kicking around and i get a text from my electrician pal today asking if anyone is after a van as he is selling his.

    Offered me it for a good price with mot til december, tax til sept and he just had £600 worth of work done so apart from a bad scratch down one side its in good nick and being a 53 plate, no rust so far.

    Now i have a part of me saying i dont need to cars, a part saying get it and save the fuel costs and the biggest part saying get it drop a 2.0 turbo engine in it and mod the backside off it lol

    Really should have kept my idea from the missus though. Chuffed she is not!!

    Lol just found a old total vauxhall with a white one in fife with gsi front and 19" snow flakes. I fear i may not be able to resist this one. Always had a thing for vans. My mate was after £1300 for it but will sell to me for £1,000 and i have til the end of the week before he advertises it.

    Time to send the missus some flowers and grovel a bit or probably end up lol

    Lol buy it!

    My freind is an auto electrician and he's dropped a 150 cdti lump in his 02 plated astravan and had it tuned etc, rolling road figures are in the 180's and he barely carries anything in the van except wiring etc for his work.

    In a word, the best word to describe it is 'Fast'...it's silly fast lol.
